Estimating Fundamentals with Brian Hoffelder

Electrical Estimating Fundamentals Class

COVID-19 has meant that many organizations had to pivot and find new ways to deliver training sessions. But the last thing people want is another Zoom lecture – especially when research shows that active learning can increase learning outcomes by 6%.

Vision InfoSoft partnered with CloudShare to provide a custom learning experience for electrical contractors. Students are each provided a virtual Windows PC will all necessary class supplies and software.  Brian Hoffelder, Vision's expert electrical estimator and trainer, leads the interactive class where he can see every student's live desktop and actively guides students through the online Estimating Fundamentals class.

What Sets Our Electrical Estimating Course Apart?

  1. Instruction from a certified estimator with over 30-years in the industry
  2. Easy to attend - with 2 bite-size online sessions
    • Students can attend using any computer from any location.
    • We recommend a USB headset with a microphone but students can call in and use their phone's speakerphone.
  3. Practice skills such as material costing, takeoff, and estimating in our online lab
