Supervisory Training Courses and Supervisor Training Programs

Supervisory Training Courses and Programs

ERC Training is a leading provider of supervisor training. We work with organizations to create a customized training solution, and we deliver the supervisory courses nationwide in a variety of formats.

What makes ERC's training and development program for supervisors different?

ERC uses a proven model as a guideline for building effective and application-based supervisor training that addresses customers' individual needs. ERC conducts an assessment of each situation, depending on the complexity of each organization's training need. ERC then designs the appropriate training solution, focused on the specific audience, and chooses the appropriate tools and techniques that will make the training "stick" and be able to be used immediately on the job.

Who should attend ERC's Supervisory Training courses?

ERC's Supervisor Training program is perfect for supervisors of all experience levels: newly promoted supervisors, supervisors who have been in the role but never received formal training, and supervisors who want to develop better management skills and be more effective in their role.

What do the training participants receive?

ERC works with organizations to produce materials that are customized to the needs of the organization and the training audience. ERC develops customized participant materials as "structured note-taking guides" that serve as a follow-along workbook that participants can write in and make into their own reference document.

Where does ERC deliver training for supervisors and managers?

ERC's training programs are implemented at the customer site or a site of their choice. All of ERC's training is highly engaging and interactive, as ERC believes that being involved in one's own learning is the only way to create behavior change.

Are the training participants evaluated?

ERC has the ability to evaluate training participants at all four of the Kirkpatrick levels of evaluation. Level I evaluation is included in the standard pricing. Pre- and post- tests can also be provided to help an organization measure knowledge and assess improvement of the participants after completing supervisor training.
