Introductory and Advanced Interactive Training Courses

 

Exactal offers regular introductory and advanced interactive training courses at our inner-city training room locations around Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and the UK. Presented by a qualified Exactal quantity surveyor, our training courses are hands-on with one computer allocated for each student, and small class sizes for each participant’s benefit. Away from the distraction of the office, you will be free to concentrate and get the maximum benefit from your training.

 

CostX® is very easy to learn and use, so after just a few hours of introductory training you’ll be able to work on your projects. Through regular use of CostX®, you’ll find that you are able to further develop your skills to really exploit its power and capabilities; this may then be followed by a subsequent advanced training course after a time.
