10-Week Design Course - Nov 6, 2023-Jan 19, 2024
Type: 10-Week Design Course
Instructor: Cecil Bilbo
You can have a productive designer in 10 weeks. Graduates of the course will be able to lay out sprinklers and piping, and then calculate and stocklist an entire sprinkler system. And they will be able to do it using YOUR software.
Upon completion, your new employee will have the equivalent of one year of experience (depending on the student, maybe more).
This is an intense, accelerated course. Much like a Summer Semester in College. It will require students to use an entire 8-hour day to complete course work This will include lectures, lab time, and homework.
This 200-hour program is completely ONLINE. Lectures and Lab Time are conducted LIVE for 4 to 5 hours a day, five days a week.
The live online format means:
- No travel costs
- No time away from family
- Attend classes from anywhere
- Daily interaction with the instructors
- Real training from the best teachers in the industry
Potential designers can be recruited in your area. They can then take the course in your office, or anywhere you think would be most beneficial.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE CANDIDATES FOR YOU!
We look forward to seeing you or your recruit in class!
