Learn electrical estimating. We specialize in online training for electricians, project managers, warehouse managers, and college interns who want to learn the art & science of electrical estimating.
The demand for electrical estimators has never been greater!
There is currently a great demand for educated, experienced electrical estimators. One reason, of course, is the continued growth in the construction sector. The other is the lack of available training. Many colleges today offer construction management degrees. Here, students primarily learn how to become project managers. Therefore, the profession is rarely if at all promoted.
Search any job engine today and you will find job openings across the country for senior electrical estimators. Depending on the location many of these job opportunities exceed a base salary of $100,000.00. Yet, the availability of senior estimators is nearly non-existent because senior estimators are highly valued and well paid and do not move from company to company very often.
Even when one does become available contractors will typically spend 20% of the first-year salary to a recruiter exceeding $20,000.00. Then they hope and pray they keep them more than a year, if not they will pay another large sum of money to recruit the next.
We say, train the estimator nor retain the recruiter.
Here, we offer the most unique training system for electrical estimators available. Yes, there are other training courses available. Typically these are 2-5 days of sitting in a remote classroom with a group of other students and very little one-to-one training is given your future estimator.
At the end of these classes, the student typically learns how to set up a feeder schedule, the difference between counting fixtures and devices, and maybe when to run EMT versus PVC.
Another popular method training method today is to give the student 40 hours of prerecorded videos to watch and learn on their own. It is not uncommon for the student to lose interest or fall asleep after watching one or two hours of these videos.
The cost of these courses ranges from $995.00 to over $2,000.00 plus in some cases travel & lodging.
Live One to One Instruction. No Books to Read, No Videos To Watch.
We offer a different solution. We provide One-to-one training in the comfort of your own office, at your own computer, and on your time schedule, with an online instructor that actually talks to you, answers your questions, and trains you from beginning to end.
Yes, unfortunately, there is still homework. Depending on the course each week you will be given tasks to complete before the next session. The best way to learn is by doing.
Who have we trained in the past?
We offer a variety of courses to help train the electrical estimators of tomorrow:
Electrical Blueprint Reading – (4) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students that have no electrical construction knowledge or experience. For example college interns.
Electrical Estimating I – (8) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students that have a working knowledge of electrical construction documents. For example, electrical engineers, electricians & project managers as well as students that have taken our electrical blueprint reading course.
Electrical Estimating II – (8) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students that have some experience preparing electrical estimates but are not self-sufficient. For example, interns or junior estimators that you have been working with or students that have completed our Electrical Estimating I course.
Design-Build Estimating – (4) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students who have electrical estimating experience working on design bid build projects and want to advance to conceptual estimating for design-build projects.
Accubid Pro – (4) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students that have experience preparing electrical estimates manually or with spreadsheets and want to advance to computerized electrical estimating.
OnScreen Takeoff – (4) 2 Hour Sessions
This course is for students that have experience preparing estimates using only blueprints and want to advance to using paperless onscreen takeoff software.
Ready to learn or train a key employee?
We cannot stress enough. Our courses are not regimented to be here at this place at this time. The internet and online meeting applications allow us to be much more flexible. Want to meet on Wednesdays at 3PM or Friday at 10AM? No problem. We will find a date and time that fits your schedule. The average training session is 2 hours once weekly or bi-weekly depending on your preference.
How much does each course cost?
The price of each course is based on the number of hours at a rate of $250.00 per hour. We offer a 20% discount for each additional course should you choose to take additional courses.
We offer payment plans for individuals and additional package discounts for companies that need to train multiple students.
If you think this sounds expensive. Think again.
If you are an individual that wants to learn a new career that could eventually pay a six-figure salary, compare the cost of our courses to those taught at universities.
If you are a contractor think of the value you will gain by having an additional estimator that is properly trained and likely to stay with your company for many years simply because you cared enough about them as an employee to help them advance within your company. Not to mention the thousands of dollars you are spending and risking to hire someone that may or may not stay with your company.
