Small Student to Teacher Ratio
Our facility is equipped to handle 5 students per class, with individual supplies and equipment provided for each student to use during training. We are the only stone and tile training facility that offers a maximum 5 to 1 student/instructor ratio. Coursework includes 80% hands-on training, which means there is no standing around and watching other students work, waiting for your turn.
Our training classrooms have been carefully and strategically designed to optimize the learning experience for the student. Multiple hands on work areas and real life situations are created in the classrooms. The stone classroom lets the student work up against wood floors, carpeting and drywall, on a wide variety of stone types, in tight spaces, around obstacles, and in corners. The tile and grout classroom and the ‘in the field’ training have been designed to prepare the student for the real world. In all training classes, various methods, tools, machinery and products are introduced and available to use. The instructors may make specific recommendations, but our belief is the student is best served when given the opportunity to see and try for themselves what options are available.
