Best Electrical Estimating Software

Hi, I am about to take my journeyman certification test here in California and eventually would like to start my own business. I am aware that

in California, you need 4 years of journey-level experience. I have an associates in Electrical Construction and Maintenance which the CSLB said

they would give me 1.5 years of experience. Plus I currently have 1.5 years of "journey level experience," as the CSLB requires. So just about a

year left!!! My question is in regard to estimating software. I know this is premature for my situation but I wanted to know what EC's out

there use for software and approximate prices. In school, we used ConEst software, which seemed pretty easy to navigate and I believe it

updated itself for current material pricing. So what do you guys use?

Congratulations on your journeyman certification journey and your future business plans – that's impressive! When it comes to estimating software, you're definitely thinking ahead. ConEst software seems like a solid option with its user-friendly navigation and automatic material pricing updates. Another software to consider could be Accubid, which offers advanced estimating tools for electrical contractors.
