Training

Hands-on training at our place, or yours.

Training that encompasses all aspects of
the decorative concrete industry.

Pre-Cast & Cast-In-Place Countertops

Almost everything you could possibly face in the field you will deal with here. Bob Harris will orchestrate a fast paced schedule over the four days as we template and pour on actual cabinets, not just imaginary rectangles.

Skim coats, Stains, and Dyes

If you have ever wondered why you would use a water based stain verses an acid stain or a water based dye compared to a solvent based dye, then this is the class for you.

Stamped Concrete

You won’t find any grey, broom finished concrete here. Proper placing and finishing tools needed, grading, surface preparation, forming, mix designs, admixtures, and integral coloring are just a few things things you will learn in this training.

Extreme Concrete Polishing

During this class you will learn the basics of concrete polishing as well as some advanced techniques to help take your business to the next level.
