QicWorks uses Classifications to group together common Resource types. Classifications are not the individual Resource names, instead it is the group in which to Resource will be costed by. Classifications are used to calculate the net cost and billable rates for each of your resources.
Classification examples include Boilermaker Level 2, Supervisor, or 5T Truck.
Classifications can be active or inactivated, as applicable.
