Welcome to McCain Institutes!

This year has been designated as the "Year of the Korean War Veteran".

My name is Neil McCain and I have been an Instructor of Estimating and Project Management since 1976.
My courses were once offered at 7 separate Campus Schools employing 42 Instructors where training fees then were typically $5890.00 per student and required a 6 month commitment from the student to complete the training.
In 1980 my courses were converted to a "Distance Education" and "Live Seminars" format. In the 90's I typically only offered my courses through a "Distance Education" format utilizing video tapes which later evolved into PowerPoint training using computers.
With the advances in technology I am now able to offer the exact same training on a computer CD or a download which contains all of the needed materials to complete the course for the absolutely unheard of price of $20. This CD uses PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, and Audio in an MP3 format.

I now offer only an Electrical Estimating course and an IRS Strategies course, each for the low price of $20!
Don't be fooled by this price, this is the exact same material I once sold for $5890.00 per student - the only thing that has changed is the format in which I am able to deliver it to you.

The website above states the Judge Learned Hand decisions while on the Supreme Court and with that ruling this study is based on.

One of the most famous quotes that Judge Learned Hand is known for is: "There is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible."
"Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes"
