Education Outreach: Estimating Seminar -- Registratin Closed

Thanks for registering! See you August 1st!

A course for those who already have a practical understanding of fundamental estimating and are looking for a way to improve their skills by learning how more involved and complicated project elements are estimated. The course is designed to guide estimators in developing true anticipated costs, rather than overhead, pricing, profits, or job costing. Participants are introduced to the new AWI eCostBook and are shown how it can be used for estimating difficult projects. They work through several challenging, complex, real life examples ­ jobs which really were produced by the faculty.

To get a Return on Investment you will make the most of this workshop you must:

1. ­ Have a solid understanding of both fundamental estimating, woodworking operations, and mathematics.
2. ­ Bring a laptop computer, loaded with the estimating software you use daily, including but on limited to MS Excel, and wireless internet access

3. ­ Commit to investing the entire two days with us, as the most challenging advanced activities will take place the afternoon of the second day.
