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.
