The United States-based National Demolition Association (NDA) has announced that its next estimating course will take place in San Jose, California, on March 2 and 3.

The association said: “Join the NDA and fellow demolition professionals to learn proven estimating techniques for a variety of projects in multiple industries.

“This is your opportunity to educate your staff on the ins and outs of estimating, and we have hands-on experience working through a real life project to develop an estimate during the course.

“Encourage your staff to attend this course and they will return to the office with strategies and tactics they can use to help your company compete and succeed in the industry.”
