Keywords: Technicians training, construction, poor regulation, staff development



ABSTRACT: This paper analyzed the results of a survey that aims to explore the relevance of construction technician training in modern construction industry in Nigeria. The exploratory research highlights a specific set of objectives that determine the relevance of construction technician training and explore the factors militating against construction technicians training. The spearman correlation coefficient analysis shows that there is a statistically significant and positive agreement between each of the construction professionals. Consistent with theory and practice, the most predominant relevance of construction technician training is: its help organization to plan and meet its future manpower requirement while the most prominent factors militating against construction technician training is lack of adequate planning and poor regulation. The finding contributes to the relevance of construction technician training literature by encouraging intellectual property right and an effective regulatory body in the construction industry. The construction industry should strengthen its staff development programme through the establishment of a working policy for staff training.
