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.

Polished Concrete

The amazing teaching TEAM will be back together again for another incredible Polished Concrete Class.

Come join Bob Harris, Bill Glynn of US Saws, Mike Tuccelli of Metzger/McGuire Inc., Clif Rawlings and Daniel Lane of SASE Company, LLC.

Not just plain gray polished concrete, instead how about color, design, stencils, and more.

Topics will include joint preparation and joint filling with a polyurea joint pump, color-matched repair techniques, design layout and coloring techniques, proper densifying and sealing along with all of the polishing steps creating beautifully polished surfaces. Although there will be classroom time covering pricing, understanding the diamond tooling, and how to polish, this class will predominantly be hands-on on all topics. If you want to learn how to polish concrete or improve your existing skills,
sign up now.
