Program Overview

Please come join us for this in person course!! Designed to provide you with the foundational knowledge, and ‘hands on’ classroom experience, to help get you started in understanding construction design documents.


This blueprint reading series is developed to instruct each student in the basic understanding of construction blueprints & specifications. Every construction professional, whether working in the field or in the office, must know how to read plans. Although not overly complicated, beginning to read blueprints does require a basic understanding, practice and general knowledge of industry standards used to communicate project design.

What you can expect to gain from this course:

  • An introductory & foundational knowledge of blueprint reading as it relates to building construction projects.
  • Hands on practice and understanding of reading blueprints and specifications manuals.
  • Be able to locate both general & specific trade information using blueprints & Specifications.
  • Be able to answer basic construction questions related to design intent, project layout and the installation of materials at the jobsite.
  • Be able to locate, identify & understand project specific aspects within the design documents.

You don’t have to consider yourself a “public speaker” for this seminar to be enormously helpful. Presentation Boot Camp will assist you in formulating your message at the board table or at the dinner table. It’s about presenting any information in a clear, concise, and convincing way that will get results.

If you regularly present in front of internal or external audiences, live or online, come for a check-in to see how you can achieve the outcomes you desire. Nail the basics of persuasive presenting before that next bid interview. This seminar will give you the opportunity to practice multiple
times and see results, on the spot! If you’re already a pro, come in for a tune-up. If you’re lacking confidence, let’s build on your strengths.

Whatever your interest, this is a supportive, tactical, safe way to take your skills to the next level.
