    Even as a solo contractor I found this course information very useful. Glad I took this course on Job cost and estimating.

  • January 24th, 2018 -

    Excellent Information!

  • January 9th, 2018 -

    Very informative. I received a lot of good information.

  • November 29th, 2017 -

    Very informative!

  • November 27th, 2017 -

    Very Good

  • September 4th, 2019 -

    great course! Very informative

  • May 2nd, 2019 -

    some of the information is redundant, may help other people. the timer on the next button was often too slow for me as well.

  • April 15th, 2019 -

    too much reading

  • March 23rd, 2019 -

    Way too long

  • February 27th, 2019 -

    its really helpful

  • February 6th, 2019 -

    Good course, another video or two would be nice

  • January 13th, 2019 -

    some of the larger images (examples) overlap the actual chapter information. We miss out on crucial information.

  • December 21st, 2018 -

    Just about the right amount of information. I'll never get those two hours back in my life.

  • December 17th, 2018 -

    The graphic on slide 3 of section 6 blocks the written content.

  • December 4th, 2018 -

    GOOD COURSE. WOULD LIKE MORE VIDEOS AND LESS READING.

  • November 27th, 2018 -

    More detail around specific categories for estimating materials

  • September 20th, 2018 -

    Worked out fine, but I prefer a video format vs. needing to read the info.

  • July 20th, 2018 -

    We are a small specialty contractor with no employees. A lot of this was geared, it seemed to large companies. However, I did glean information that will be useful in producing our estimates.

  • June 14th, 2018 -

    Too Much!

  • June 13th, 2018 -

  • March 24th, 2018 -

    Job Estimating Course can be helpful for any Contractor; lots of the info is more relevant to business owners with employees. The info is wise to follow for estimating and increasing profits.

  • July 29th, 2019 -

    wasn't expecting text format, and nervous you don't report results to ccb. leaving addition challenge to renewal efforts

  • June 4th, 2019 -

    It was boring.

  • April 24th, 2019 -

    This class was much longer than 2 hours. The amount of reading content ending up taking closer to 3-3.5 hours to complete this class. The content is pretty good but this class took up more time than I had for this class.

  • March 4th, 2019 -

    It would have been nice to at least have the non-video portions of the course read aloud by the host

  • January 13th, 2019 -

    Some things need more examples. Following the estimating section, the questions appeared after job costing started; a bit disjointed

  • September 22nd, 2018 -

    I would prefer a narrator, instead of me reading it all. The course was full of useful information.

  • September 13th, 2018 -

    quicker information on the bullet points

  • May 7th, 2018 -

    For the amount of time needed to spend on this course it should count for 3 or 4 hours of CE.

  • April 26th, 2018 -

    I think less reading more video instructions should be lot better

  • August 11th, 2019 -

    where are all the videos that everyone uses??????

  • July 30th, 2019 -

    Not relevant to small companies. Inadequate for larger ones.

  • November 25th, 2018 -

    Pictures need to be removed. They block a large portion of the written content on pages where they appear.

  • June 13th, 2018 -

    no way I could finish this course in 2 hours.

  • April 13th, 2018 -

    way too repititive

  • February 16th, 2018 -

    The course was very repetitive with signs of copy and pasting previous course material. No professional in this industry uses many of the terms and descriptive verbiage used in this course to describe types of estimates such as "SWAG" or "WAG (Wild A#$ Guess)" Those are terms on the internet that are not professionally used nor acceptable.
