The curriculum for our distance education program is a
duplicate of the on campus 16-week Estimator & Project Manager course
that has been taught at the main branch since 1994. The 16-week
program has been divided into 16 lessons. At the completion of each
lesson the course material is either submitted online or via prepaid
envelopes. The material is graded and promptly returned to the
student. Each student is given a number of lessons to complete, so
they may immediately continue on to the next lesson. Instruction is
provided in three ways; first there is a video, which will guide the
student through all sixteen lessons. Next a very specific and detailed
assignment list is given which will describe exactly what is contained
in each lesson and finally a toll free phone number is given so that a
student may call anytime during regular school hours and speak with
one of our friendly and helpful instructors.

Skills & Responsibilities
* By definition, estimating is "the act of appraising
or valuing the worth of something." In construction , it is the
science of mathematics, the knowledge of materials, and the art of
interpretation of a blueprint. This combination produces an assessment
of a construction project that becomes the bid package, or proposal,
and the basis of the construction contract.
There are two basic prerequisites for anyone wanting
to learn these procedures:
1. A knowledge of reading and measuring blueprints.
2. A knowledge of mathematics.
* The skills
of measurement and pricing of construction work can readily be
acquired by any person of average intelligence and competence who has
reason and motivation to do so.
It should be understood that it is extremely beneficial to be able to
visualize and understand building construction systems and processes
although it is not required.
* Every participating organization on a project has
its project manager. Although the person is sometimes known by
different names, the duties remain the same. Whether in the direct
employ of the owner, the design firm, or the contractor, the project
manager is usually the person responsible for the management of all
phases of the project for his or her organization. The project manager
controls the scheduling, budgeting, and cost control coordination of
construction, letting of contracts for the owner, and is normally the
sole contact with the client as a representative of the contractor.
* The Superintendent is in full charge of all field
projects. When several projects are under construction, he coordinates
all of them, directing the interchange of materials, workers, and
equipment; stimulating progress; and resolving all problems that do
not require the attention of the company manager.
