Estimating Software And Online Course Advice

Hi guys, I have a family owned deck building business and I've been doing all of my estimating the old fashioned way with lots of leg work for pricing materials.
I'm looking for some advice on estimating courses and software. I'd like to take an estimating course online, I'm wondering if anyone can lead me to one that is great. I've looked at any reviews?

Also estimating software. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Re: Estimating Software And Online Course Advice

I guess that depends on what you're trying to achieve. I used to use custom Excel spreadsheets and I know a lot of guys do also.

How exactly do you do estimating currently?
What parts are the most painful?

As for courses, has good value in my books. With multiple courses on a ton of topics.
