Student Success Stories
This course reinforced the time constraints builders and site managers face daily and while doing this course I found a new awe for them. I liked how the course took an overall perspective of what a quantity surveyor or estimator did from organising estimates of preliminaries to the final account. I personally recommend this course and my tutor was extremely helpful – Utilise your tutor and ask many questions they are there to help.
Awesome course, had a little knowledge in quoting but this has taught me things I never thought I needed to know. If your looking to be a quantity surveyor this is the course for you!
QS was always something i saw as my next step in my career. Given how difficult it was to find somewhere to study while working full time this course was absolutely perfect with its flexibility to study at your own time. It outlines all the key concepts and practical techniques required for success in the field. The support i received from my tutor was extremely helpful which allowed me to understand the contents of the course. Can’t recommend this enough to anyone who is also looking into starting their QS career.
Working with NZES was a great step forward for my career change. They provided an efficient and cost-effective way to certify myself in the QS industry. My tutor was more than helpful and always willing to work with me on any questions I had throughout the course curriculum. The Module’s layout were very effective and gave a great foundation to work from.
“This is the perfect course to help focus on the practical aspect of the job, fast tracking & understanding the backbone of QS, learning how to do everyday tasks/demands of a QS and learning the latest industry standards.
The super fast response to questions & test paper grading from my tutor was a real motivator.”
My learning journey at NZES was a life-changing experience and unlocking all the knowledge in the construction industry really helped me a lot to improve and put me in a high level of skills in Estimating and Quantity Surveying fields.
This Estimating and Surveying course I’ve now completed from NZES is a comprehensive refresher for the uantities and estimating subjects in a nutshell; It’s condensed and flexible with the duration. The online aspect also makes it very convenient. I was able to access and undertake this course from different countries. I’m now ready to get back to being an estimator!
“This course has provided me with a CV refresh and qualification as I pivot from on-site project management to office-based estimating due to injury. I believe the curriculum enables employers to be confident graduates are job ready and I look forward to using my skills as a construction estimator.”
“The course was very informative and it gave more clarity based around areas that I wanted more understanding around in my role. Course gave a good understanding around construction contracts which was relevant in my line of work.”
This course was very beneficial. It was key to my education in Estimating and Surveying. The resources were very helpful in understanding the different disciplines,
“This aspect of the course is unique in itself. I have never had an experience like it, where I was personally given a tutor to help me through the program. The tutor was a professional in his field, very experienced but also humble and down to earth”…
I undertook the course in Estimating to gain an understanding of the NZ building environment , having run my own manufacturing concern supplying the construction industry abroad for many years.
The course helped hugely in laying out the important aspects of the construction process from an estimators point of view and will be a good source of reference going forward.
The support I received from my Tutor was invaluable and allowed me to truly understand the contents and concepts of the course very well. The structure of the course was perfect for me and flexible enough that I was able to work on it at my own pace and time and still manage to successfully complete each section in a timely manner.
“The course material itself is well done. There is great use of flowcharts and excel spreadsheets to help with the visualisation of data particularly cash flow forecasting, critical pathways of a project and the kind/nature of on-site costs that are incurred during a construction project. I quite enjoyed learning about the 4Ps, tendering, the nature of construction contracts adopted by different players in the industry, final accounts, payment schedules, variations to a contract and breaking down estimates for a particular project.”
“This Quantity Surveying course was the perfect thing for me to do as it was very flexible and I could work on it at my own pace and time over as many months as I wanted.
“As a working professional looking to expand my skill set, I enrolled in the NZES course, and I am pleased with my experience. The course material is well organised, covering all the key concepts and practical techniques required for success in the field. The main benifit for me was my tutor, I had some specific questions, some of which weren’t even in the course, and he was happy to help. I feel more equipped and confident in my abilities, thanks again.”
“I Fully enjoyed completing this course! My tutor was resourceful, respectful, supportive, and responded quickly. I have learnt so much. Totally recommend this course!”
As an engineer who recently completed the NZES course, I found one of the most worthwhile aspects of undertaking the course was the connections I made and the industry peers I met. This has given me a broader networking scope and valuable new contacts within the industry and my locality.
“I cannot recommend NZES enough for anyone looking to start a career in quantity surveying and estimating. The course material is comprehensive and the instructors are knowledgeable and passionate about their subject matter. The interactive exercises and interactive course material made the learning experience engaging. My tutor went above and beyond. I have acquired a strong foundation in the key concepts and practical aspects of QS”
“I recently completed the NZES online course and I have to say, the personal tutoring aspect was what truly set it apart. The instructors were available at all times to answer my questions and provide guidance, and this made all the difference in my learning experience. The personal attention and support I received was invaluable and allowed me to truly understand the material and grasp the concepts.”
“We put a whole team through NZES. We were really impressed. It was comprehensive but also fit around our work. Everyone gained something from it. Really friendly staff and super helpful”
