Introduction and Course Objectives

The estimating techniques covered in this course will provide participants with the necessary skills to forecast accurately the anticipated costs of projects.
The development of reliable cost estimates during the design and early conceptual stages of a proposed project is of critical importance since the decision to proceed with a project is often based almost exclusively on early conceptual cost estimates. These estimates also provide the basis for the cash flow projections and forecasts used during the project feasibility study.
