As someone already employed in the construction industry, I was keen to take my role to the next level and upskill in the areas of estimating and surveying. I talked to my employer who tasked me with finding suitable training options. Through my research and conversations with industry colleagues, I learnt that NZES offers a great course in the construction estimating and surveying field. The online study was a great advantage it meant I could complete the course at times that suited both my employer and me. The one-on-one tutoring and mentoring allowed me to really connect and learn from my tutor, who had up-to-date knowledge and experience in the field and provided me with personal feedback and guidance throughout the course. I found all the modules very relevant to my current role and organisation, providing me with additional expertise and the ability to offer more to my employer and clients. My employer was so impressed that he's looking at enrolling other staff members in the NZES course.
