Course Overview:

Please be aware this course can take place virtually through Microsoft Teams.

Too often the person with the best technical skills gets promoted to be the new Engineering Manager or Supervisor. Those practical skills which served the technician well are now redundant and supervisory skills need to be nurtured.
