Gain Practical, Hands-on Experience with Blueprints


Seminar Overview:

This course is necessary for the individual with little or no experience in construction.

The reading of construction blueprints is a foundational skill in construction. It is not terribly difficult, but it does require practice and some basic knowledge. All construction professionals, regardless of whether they are working in the field or in the office, must know how to read blueprints.

***Participants should bring a scientific calculator. Textbook and scales included.

Benefits of Attending:

Mastery of blueprint reading will come with practice and with using blueprints on the job on a regular basis. The confidence of students will be increased with the time and experience gained through participating in this practical hands-on course and through class activities, and homework assignments.


Develop Your Knowledge and Learn More About:

  • Symbols, abbreviations, and line types to assist in reading construction prints, details, and elevation drawings
  • Review of basic math skills for construction use
  • Adding and subtraction of dimensions with fractions, and calculations for areas and volumes for material estimating
  • Use of architectural and engineering scales

Who Should Attend:

This six week course is a “must” for the person starting out in the construction industry or one with very limited knowledge of blueprints who desires basic knowledge and understanding of building plans, terminology, and concepts and is looking to improve their skills in reading construction drawing and specifications.


Instructor:

Ed Fisher, Light-Heigel and Associates: Ed is a Project Manager / Vice President for Light-Heigel and Associates, a Civil Engineering and Surveying firm and has been involved in the engineering and construction industry for more than 30 years. Ed brings a variety of real-life construction experiences and knowledge to the classroom for problem solving. His goal in every class is to help participants gain confidence in their abilities and to put their knowledge to work.
