November 13th – 17th, 2023
Buffalo, NY

Last 5-Day Bootcamp Until Spring 2024

This five-day program will provide the estimator trainee with the complete fundamentals of estimating and the methodology that would take years to learn by observation.  This course is ideal for a junior and entry level estimator. Even the seasoned estimator will gain additional knowledge and insight from the workshop. The trainee will need to be able to devote his or her undivided attention for five straight days due to the intensity of the training.  We will completely estimate a $200K project from beginning to end.

The program allows for a maximum of four or five trainees at a time which will provide a classroom setting that is conducive to maximum learning. The training is designed to focus on computerized estimating rather than manual estimating. The estimating project utilized for the workshop is a new vehicle maintenance facility. It has several different labor factoring applications and incorporates methods for exposed and concealed work as well.

The best results will be realized when the trainee have some electrical field experience and knowledge of electrical materials and installations. Those with no electrical experience will not be allowed to attend.
