Construction Estimator Certificate Program

Overview

The Construction Estimator Program is designed to improve the knowledge and skill levels of persons working or wishing to work as estimators in the Commercial Construction Industry. Individuals who previously learned estimating skills on the job or individuals wishing to enter the construction industry would benefit from this program. Areas to be covered include the role and responsibility of the estimator, use of tendering documents, cost planning/control, surveying, material quantities and unit costs, review specifications and take-off quantities, and preparation of bid forms. The final phase of the program is designed for students to gain the knowledge necessary to run a complete project on site.

Note: Students have up to 7 years to complete all requirements.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Textbooks are available at the Campus Shop for in class, Contact North, and iLearn/D2L courses. The Campus Shop does not carry most OntarioLearn textbooks. OntarioLearn textbooks can be purchased at www.textnet.ca.

Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved.
