Often we are asked the question “Where can I go to learn how to be an electrical estimator?” Until now, the answers ranged from on the job training (also known as “trial by fire”), peer mentoring, and one-on-one training with an outsourced estimating consultant.
The wait is over! Candels Estimating, the leader in outsourced estimating consulting, has launched a new venture called the Candels Electrical Training Academy.
Although our main focus is on estimating, we have a lot to share with you! Besides courses in beginning, intermediate and advanced estimating, Candels will also be offering classes geared to the office/estimating assistant, project manager, foreman, and the contractor.
Candels has always been dedicated to the betterment of the electrical industry through education and training. When you contract with Candels to do a take-off for you, we not only do the take-off but give you a lot of “value added extras” which differentiates us from our competitors. Our job doesn’t stop at the take-off. We are always available to discuss bid strategy, GC negotiations, claims and so much more!
If you want to learn to estimate the right way, you must understand the fundamentals. The Candels curriculum will give each student a solid basis on which to build his skills.
Why not learn estimating from the estimating experts?
