Launched in January of 2003, the RCS designation is geared to future field superintendents and current construction site personnel who want to sharpen their skills. The designation’s eight, four-hour courses are offered through home builders associations and cover issues and subjects identified by NAHB members as critical to a field supervisory job.
Nearly 3,500 industry professionals have received RCS training in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada and North Carolina.
In an effort to further promote the success of the RCS program, the National Housing Endowment has awarded HBI, the workforce development arm of NAHB, a grant to help develop the next tract of advanced-level superintendent training. Work on these courses is underway, with an anticipated rollout in mid-2005.
