Course Approval #: CS-7818
Credit Category: This 2 hour course is approved for 2 credits in the Business Practices/Workers’ Compensation category.

Class description: The most difficult part of estimating is predicting the labor required to complete a project.  But, what does it really cost your business to support and compensate your employees for each hour they work, before you even make a profit?  The burdened cost of labor includes much more than just the hourly wage of the employee who will complete the work.   Knowing what to charge for labor should be based on the actual costs of the company doing the work.  Properly pricing your labor can also help make sure you can complete projects for your customers at the price quoted.  Attend this seminar to find out how to do it.  You can even get a free MS Excel spreadsheet template so you can get started right away!

Learning Objectives: During this program we will be discussing and demonstrating the following:

  • What really makes up the burden cost of labor and why?
  • Estimating by the hour, man or crew?
  • Estimated hours VS the labor budget.
  • How to include non-paid time (vacations, holidays, company meetings…)
  • How to include benefits (health insurance, 401K, vehicle allowances…)
  • How to use the free labor burden spreadsheet.

“Overview Of Concrete For Residential Construction”

Course Approval #: CS-7820

Credit Category: This 2 hour course is approved for 2 credits in the Code Review category.

Class description: Concrete is everywhere, we walk on it, drive on it, work and live on it.  Often times it is the first material a contractor will use as the base or foundation of a structure.  For proper construction, and to meet code requirements, residential contractors need to know how to properly prepare for, order, mix, handle and cure concrete.  If any of these considerations fail your work may not meet code, may not be structurally sound and or may not stand the test of time.

Learning Objectives: By completing this class you will:

  • Learn proper and safe site preparation.
  • Learn and apply the science behind how concrete works when you build.
  • Learn what you need to know to mix and finish your own quality concrete at the jobsite.
  • Learn how to properly estimate, place, finish and cure concrete so your work meets code and desired performance requirements.
