Real World Estimating with Bluebeam – Quantity Takeoff

$425 per person | 8 CPC/CEU credits

Accurate quantity takeoff is the foundation of any good estimate, and Bluebeam Revu offers tools that simplify and automate the takeoff process. While these tools are powerful and simple to use, they have extended control, display, and customization features that will let your staff dramatically reduce project estimate time-to-completion. This course will teach students the detailed features of all linear, area, volume and count takeoff items, along with advanced information and status tracking for all takeoff items inside Bluebeam Revu. We will also cover report extraction and integration with Microsoft Excel for estimating procedures.

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the course progresses.

Note: This class is for Bluebeam Revu for PC, not the iPad. Instructor will be using Bluebeam Revu eXtreme 20 and some tools shown may not be available in Revu Standard or CAD. Looking for this class in Bluebeam Revu 2017, 2018, or 2019? Contact us to make arrangements.
