Basic Blueprint Reading For Support Staff


March 19, 26, April 9, 16, 23 & 30, 2018
7:00 pm – 9:30 pm each session

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

Blueprint reading is not terribly difficult but it does require practice and some basic knowledge of blueprints. The reading of construction blueprints is a foundational skill in construction. 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.

“This helped me gain a general understanding of blueprints and will greatly help when I do cost analysis work.”    
– Gentry Radwanski, E.R. Stuebner, Inc.

“I got a better idea of how to address and look at a blueprint.”

– Andrew Enck, Enck Brothers Drywall, Inc.


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 your support staff will be increased with the time and experience gained through participating in this practical hands-on course and through class activities, and homework assignments.
