    • Introduction to on-line bid boards and registration for State and Federal projects.
    • Removing some of the financial impact to becoming a Local 180 signatory electrical contractor by reimbursing some of the costs required to secure a new contractors license.

Advanced estimating training to increase productivity. Presenting proposals.

    As stated in our mission statement, we look to remove some of the financial impact to becoming a Local 180 signatory electrical contractor by reimbursing some of the costs required to secure a new contractors license, such as: Application fee of $250. Test fee of $150. Course materials up to $450. License bond up to $150. Fringe benefit bond up to $200.

    All the mentoring and training in the world is useless without marketing. You have to get in front of the prospect and create the interest and desire to select your firm for a quote. Then you have to sell the idea that of all the contractors, your firm is the only one that can fulfill their needs.
