In addition to the three programs which will be held Wednesday morning, there will be three additional estimating-related programs during the week.
If you have new employees who aren’t as experienced in the building material industry (for example, office employees, counter, sales or yard personnel) who need to understand lumber, the terms that are used and how selling is done in this industry, Casey’s seminar, “Introduction to Building Material Sales”, can give them this information! He uses the Lumber Reference Manual that BMSA sells as their guide through this special day-long program.
Then, employees who are new or those who are a little more seasoned but haven’t done a lot of work with blueprints or working on quotes will gain a wealth of knowledge in Casey’s 2-day “Basic Blueprint Reading & Material Take-off” program on Tuesday and Wednesday. This program has received raved reviews each time we hold it. And, what better time to send your employees than when they can not only go to class, but can follow it up by viewing the materials that are being discussed at BMSA’s Show! This is a special opportunity to reinforce the information they are receiving in class!
On Thursday, Casey is going to hold an Advanced Estimating Class. It’s important that you understand this is an Advanced Class. If your employee has been through the basic estimating first, he/she should be ready for this. But if you decide to put a more seasoned estimator in this class, please be sure he/she is really ready for it as the class will be dealing with the more difficult areas of estimating and blueprint reading.
This can truly be a week of training that will benefit your employees and the company for years to come. Don’t miss this opportunity! If you have any questions, please call 800-966-4202 or 800-849-1503.
