Consulting Estimators Round Table – Who We Are

The Consulting Estimators Roundtable was founded by a group of professional cost consultants who believe that becoming a competent cost consultant should be more substantive then simply hanging out a shingle or placing an ad in a construction directory or trade journal. They view the growing trend of outsourcing as not just a challenge to their business , but a challenge to the professionalism of the entire cost consulting industry. They founded CERT with the confidence that providing strong and relevant credentialing in this non- regulated business would help maintain high professional standards ,without which under-qualified estimating firms could devolve into “estimating mills” and eventually degrade the industry.
