Registration

Registration can be made by calling our Registrar at (601) 957-4461. Reservations should be made
as well in advance as possible. We limit the number of students in most classes so individual attention can be provided. This one-on-one instruction is especially important in producing estimates in the Physical Damage and the Property Estimating courses. An advanced pre-study
CD course (will require a computer) will be mailed to students in the Property Estimating and Physical Damage classes.

Tuition

Tuition for courses does not include lodging, meals and course materials. Established customer companies will be billed for tuition and motel charges after course completion.

Motel Arrangements

Hotel reservations for students are made at the Drury Inn & Suites , located at 610 East County Line Road, Ridgeland, Mississippi. Their local phone number is 601-956-6100 and their toll-free number is 1-800-378-7946. Click for a map to the Drury Inn and Suites. We recommend students have single rooms. Written confirmation along with directions to the motel will be sent approximately two weeks prior to the class. Established customer companies will be billed for motel charges and tuition after course completion.

Grading

Students are graded on daily quizzes, final examination, group workshops and, where applicable, estimates and exercises.  An overall passing ratio of 70% is required for each basic course. 

Facilities

Southern Farm Bureau Tech is a modern two-story facility. The pleasant educational environment and class room arrangement maximizes the learning potential of each student. Two large break rooms are provided for students.

A property estimating house is located within the building to aid students in understanding the various types of construction. The large auto shop area houses many damaged vehicles and specialized frame repair equipment to assist our students.

Dress

Student dress should be "business casual" attire. There are exceptions only on days when shop and field trips are scheduled in which students may dress more comfortably.

Weekends

The weekend is free. There is a listing of various churches, their addresses and times of service in the Yellow Pages. Tech will provide a listing of restaurants and places of scenic interest.

Emergency Medical Treatment

We have arranged for emergency medical or dental treatment. Tech staff members will arrange for transporting students to and from a place of treatment. All treatments will be at the student's expense.
