Steel estimating is a trade learned by doing. The skills required are usually passed on from mentor to protoge', preferably from one who has been successful through their own years of experience in a working environment. We have that experience to offer you.
This apprenticeship program is for those who want a working career in steel construction but just don't know how to get started. It is not rocket science and a college education is not required. Current steel professionals are approaching retirement and the next generation is needed. Now is the time to begin building a foundation in the steel trade.
This program is an opportunity to learn the basics, and it is delivered in a format that is easy to understand. A working knowledge of computer document and spreadsheet programs is helpful but not required. The apprenticeship training will provide support with using these programs as you learn about steel and steel estimating.
You will learn about the steel materials and how they are used in steel construction, how to read and interpret construction drawings and specifications, as well as how to locate the steel items to be fabricated. After you have achieved these basic skills, continued training will show you how those steel fabricated items are to be listed for pricing, how to add labor time for shop fabrication, then how to include costs for buyout items, painting, galvanizing and shipping.
You will be able to develop your career however you decide to use it. Steel estimators can grow into managers, or may take a side step into steel detailing, purchasing, project management, or equability control. This beginning into the steel industry will provide many opportunities, and you are only limited by how you apply yourself.
We can get you started in a training program where you can learn at your own pace and according to your own schedule, where ever you are. Call or email us today to find out more.
