EARLY BIRD DISCOUNTS
course content follows the Auto Estimatics Course Syllabus using electronic
estimating systems to practice assigned estimates following topics covered in
Our hands-on approach uses cutaways, visual aids and a large inventory of late model damaged vehicles. This enables the student to generate damage estimates beginning on the first day of class. Progressing in difficulty, each estimate is reviewed and discussed. More complex front, side and rear impact estimates are graded so the student learns a variety of realistic estimating skills.
Emphasis is given to new generation vehicles and the new products, materials, and accessories being manufactured today.
After successfully completing this course, the student will have the skills and knowledge to prepare a complete and accurate electronic estimate using automated system data as well as practical repair formulas and structural analysis methods.
