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.
The information was the best. I could tell the instructors knew what they were doing. I would like to take other courses in time.
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!
