Many of the problems that companies experience can be traced back to shortfalls that have happened in the cost estimating process. The fact is, many estimators who produce quotes have not been educated in the cost estimating processes. This course will bridge that gap by explaining the underlying principles. It does not involve training in Benchmark Estimating Software; in fact attendees could use any estimating software, or Excel. Whatever method, the underlying principles remain the same and that’s why the Fundamentals of Estimating workshop is the best course for you.
