Certification provides credibility and reliability to any product produced, and our life safety depends on many of them.  Examples in our everyday lives of relying on certified individuals in the workplace providing safe dependable products are airline pilots, structural bridge engineers, and medical professionals, to mention a few.  Certified Professional Estimators providing reliable information offer extra trust to decision makers who have responsibility for financial decisions on construction projects and extra confidence of having Certified Estimator on their team.



Estimating skills and trust go “hand in hand,” both can take years to obtain, yet trust can be lost in seconds.  The trust for the Estimator after making an error can take years to earn back.  Life has issues of unfortunate mistakes, accidents and failures. The minimization of these troubles can be achieved by the utilization of properly trained and certified individuals. Even though having a Certified Professional Estimator does not guarantee a non-mistake environment, it can certainly minimize the risk of having errors and gives confidence of a qualified cost to any project.
