Standard Training Class: Our popular class has been expanded from once a month to twice a month.  This class takes an estimator through the 5 steps of estimating from start to finish. Starting with small jobs to get the feel of the estimating system, to taking off and finalizing the estimate of a larger job using McCormick's computerized estimating system's takeoff tools. The class is held over a three day period. In depth instruction is provided that will get a person with good manual experience to estimating with the computer, as well as provide "brush-up" exposure for those that are using the product, but would like to get more out of it. Each student will receive a standard training manual for the class that includes the class exercises..

Advanced Training Class:This class has been designed for the database manager or chief estimator.  In this two-day class, we drill down into the bottom of the program and teach you how to use the database tools (i.e. copy, move, insert, and range edit) to modivey itiems and assemblies. We'll look at ways to use the jobs window to supply additional information. You will also be taught how to modify existing or create new extension reports. Setting up security for new users and what each security group allows will be included. We will review the features of the audit trail, takeoof methods, labels extension, and the bid summary. Database and supplier updating will be covered as well. Building specifications and formulas and modifying reports and more will be covered. To attend this powerful class, you must be profiecient in all takeoff phases of the McCormick product and have an understanding of what your company requires at this level. each student will receive an advanced training manual for the class that includes the system information covered.
