    Missing the estimate or not having the knowledge to properly execute an estimate can cost you the sale and more importantly the profit. This course will guide the student through the steps to ensure that they have the understanding of how to do a take-off from a blueprint, how to calculate amounts of material and proper seam placement for carpet and resilient flooring. All types of floor covering will be extensively covered.

    I wish it were on the west coast and in Canada. I would pay for my sales associates to take it :)

    ...they are not mine for the record, just the ones I work with.
