I liked the hands on training, smaller ratio of students to instructors. and the skill set i can carry with me. I can use the knowledge learned here and apply it to my daily task.
This course was fantastic. It filled our needs. We loved the whole program. And felt welcomed by the staff & instructors.

Fantastic course. I have been doing this for 8 years and thought I knew what I was doing. This course has simplified the process and given me a fool proof system to tackle any job that comes my way.
Great class. The size was perfect and the ability to ask questions.
The information was the best. I could tell the instructors knew what they were doing. I would like to take other courses in time.

Enjoyed the course, from learning about the tools, equipment, materials needed to do the job and reasonable cost. The hands on was also great since this is new to me.

What I liked most about the seminar is that everything that I needed to learn I learned quick, and all the details were taught clearly in order for me to feel confident enough to start working as soon as I got back home. Thank you to everyone at The Stone and Tile School, Thank you!

What I liked most about this course: Superior knowledge and level of expertise tailored to our needs. Approachability and poignant to our market. We received everything that was promised and more. Your service has surpassed any expectations we had by far...

Covered way more than I expected. Excellent job!
What I liked best about the training: Being able to listen to the theory in the classroom. Then to be able to go out on the floor to watch the instructor execute the theory properly. And then practice it myself until I was comfortable with the method. Spot on!
This was a phenomenal course. I was very pleased to have been able to take part. All of the staff were cheerful and know their trade...

Patience and passion for the art. We had the opportunity to see the (theory) slides, then we had the chance to do it. (hands-on).
Daniel MartinezSan Antonio, Texas
Very happy with this course. Learned a tremendous amount. Excited to use what I learned in the field. I will be recommending these classes to others, very informative. Your facility is clean and well managed. Appreciate the hospitality. "John, give butch a raise!"

John and Doug were very patient with everyone, very knowledgeable to the Tile & Stone techs present. They explained all the courses very well. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn the RIGHT way of restoring floors.
William CarterGibson, Florida
My partner and I attended The Stone and Tile School. We participated in several classes and received excellent and knowledgeable hands on and classroom instruction. We have also received support after the conclusion of our training. I highly recommend the Stone and Tile School for anyone new in the business or training employees.
Kim McLaughlinDeland Florida
I liked how much hands-on work I had. I also enjoyed how after every discussion in the classroom, I got to go to the training room and utilize the machines and chemicals to do the process myself. John, Butch. Doug & Debbie were AMAZING instructors. They made my experience one I will never forget!
Very helpful, patient, and friendly. John has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the stone and tile industry, and it was a privilege to attend his training school and have one one one interaction with an instructor of his caliber. We would not start our business without attending The Stone and Tile School. Everyone in this business should come here for training. Couldn’t be better! Great Job!

It was a lucky day when I came across your marble and stone restoration school on line. It’s been only 1 week or so, that I graduated in your school and now I am having meetings all over in Washington DC with high end commercial property management and real estate Agents. It’s amazing the confidence I gained in your school in only 5 days. Doors are opening up left and right.
I am looking forward to come back to your school to complete the rest of the classes.
Ps; BTW I love your teaching style ! Less talk, lots of action!!!
John Freitag and his team at the stone and tile school are serious about your training. Each individual has their own floor machine during their class. This is important for someone with no experience in marble restoration. It’s easier for the instructor to observe and see where you may need guidance. John and Butch are very knowledgeable. They are willing to teach you how to succeed in the marble maintenance and restoration industry.
With their knowledge and the ability to pass it on to you in a understanding way means you will succeed after attending their school. Thank you.
