The Construction Education Council is pleased to present this exclusive 2-Day Dispatcher Training Program. A contracting firm’s dispatchers serve as the nerve center of the entire company. The more knowledgeable and capable they are at serving customers and communicating with field personnel, the better they can contribute to the success of the business. The training is designed to enhance your dispatcher’s skill set through group exercises, self-assessment tools and discussion groups.
