Fundamentals of Estimating 2020

8his course is 4 hours in length (8AM - 5PM).

The estimating process is the foundation for a profitable repair. A poorly written estimate translates to loss of production, re-work and bad CSI. Understanding that new and inexperienced estimators need to build their own good foundation of estimating practices, we developed the MVP Fundamentals of Estimating course. This newly refined offering guides students systematically through every phase of the estimating process. Learning is reinforced throughout the course by engaging participants in multiple estimating exercises.
