"By taking this online course I've learnt a lot about paint standards, environmental safety, writing a quote and estimation of a job. I found it very easy to do the modules which is very helpful. " - Ahmad Karimi
"I give this course 10/10!! Jim was so encouraging and supportive with every step of completing this estimating course. I'm not a painter, but a wife who wanted to help grow my husbands painting company. I can't believe how much information was given to me from start to finish. Thank you so much Jim for helping me be confident in future quoting." - N. DellAtte
