"Good job on an introductory class, being new to estimating I feel this course is spot on on helping someone figure out the challenges of being an estimator."
“I really enjoyed this course. It explored many topics that I was unfamiliar with and cultivated a basic grounding of each topic every week. I use all of this information at my workplace on a daily basis and even surprised some of my bosses with many of the new things we learned."
“I really liked the entire layout of the course, I felt that it was very organized and had a lot of practice of what we were doing. I think the change orders were super beneficial as it made me think of things more in depth and by having it in a discussion format it didn’t make me scared to be wrong but glad that I could see other perspectives."
