In December, the Painters and Allied Trades LMCI presented an overview of its newest training program – Estimating Essentials. A class designed for the “apprentice” estimator, or an up and coming IUPAT journey worker or foreman, this two-day course includes classroom and hands-on practice of estimating from the review of documents through quantity takeoff.
The apprentices work with mentors on course projects covering not only the trades they are most familiar with, but also in other crafts to expand their areas of expertise. All of the coursework is designed to illustrate the basic, comprehensive series of steps that produce winning bids for IUPAT industry partners.
The LMCI Estimating Essentials class will soon be offered to IUPAT employers throughout the United States and Canada. Follow the LMCI on Twitter @TheLMCI, on Facebook.com/TheLMCI and check our website – www.LMCIonline – for updates on when this course is available near you.
