Learn Electrical Estimating – Level I
Online & OnDemand Electrical Estimating Course
We specialize in training your electricians, project managers, warehouse managers, and college interns who want to learn the art & science of electrical estimating and become your electrical estimator of the future.
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 estimating profession is rarely if at all promoted.
