BCFCA ESTIMATING AND SALES ESSENTIALS AND TIPS

B

C Floor Covering Association offered for the second time our new education seminar,
Estimating and Sales Essentials Seminar. The Association has been working with our
Facilitator Stan Burkholder to bring some new education to our members. The course
is designed to speed up the learning curve to become an inclusive flooring sales and
estimating professional. The course covers residential flooring options, sheet goods,
carpet, laminate, hardwood and their associated accessories, with a touch on commercial flooring. Stan covered
customer interview and relations, job site assessment and measurements with blueprint reading, estimate
preparation with cost plus understanding, flooring industry glossary and terms and tips to get the sale.
Watch for this course to be offered again in the fall.

TESTIMONIAL
This course exceeded my expectations and I'm glad I took the time to attend it.
I found the content to be relevant and the presenter very engaging and knowledgeable.
I thoroughly recommend it to those looking expand on existing
estimating and sales skills.
Avi Horwitz, Sterling Floors
