Default Learning how to use estimating programs

McCormick and accubid estimating programs are they easy to learn is there a way to learn online free? Electrician associate Friend of mine wants me to start doing other types of jobs and he wants me to learn this I'm not very computer eficient. Any tips of the day to learn this stuff the cheapest way?

I know I should be a wizard at this, but I'm an old dinosaur

Bluebeam Revu has a free trial and a lot of Youtube videos you can learn from.

If you need to bone up on basic computer skills, you'd probably want to do that before you started learning the estimating software.
