Building Supply Channel
Learning Management System

Our Courses

Learning is a career-long process in construction supply, but the foundation is core skills: not just product knowledge, but also estimating techniques, math skills, selling skills, and construction expertise.

Our materials are written by construction supply professionals and designed around two fundamental principles: 1) Teach real-world skills and 2) don't waste people's time.

Nothing revolutionary. Just what we wish we'd had available when we were on the sales counter.

"I recently attended a full-day seminar, then saw a BSCi course on the topic. It had the same information, I could do it at my own pace, and it only took me half an hour."
