Learn Your Way

Learn the art, science, and business of stone and tile restoration… your way!

Stone and tile restoration is an art that requires specialized training and techniques and a science that requires specific knowledge and methodologies. Restoration technicians and contractors become proficient by implementing the most effective, time-saving repair and restoration methods, and business owners excel by making intelligent decisions and having some marketing savvy.Whether you are new to the industry and need to be trained to become a skilled technician or you are a seasoned veteran wanting to hone your skills and increase your knowledge, our mission is to enable you to learn your way, so that you are fully equipped for success. Our industry experts and extraordinary instructors deliver intensive, hands-on training at our state-of-the art facility, web-based eLearning courses you can take on your mobile device or desktop from the convenience of your home or office, and customized training at your location.

Traditional Hands-On Training

Roll up your sleeves and get busy.

Our hands-on training is an in-person experience at our school facility.Each student is assigned their own equipment, tools and floor or surface space. Students get plenty of one-on-one time with the instructors to ask questions and get feedback. We have over a thousand square feet of stone on the floors and have over twenty different types of stones to work on. The majority of your time in hands-on training will be spent physically working on floors and surfaces. Unfortunately, hands-on learning is not as flexible as eLearning, and it does require time off work, as well as hotel and travel expenses. In some cases, hands-on learning still proves to be well worth the inconvenience and extra cost, so we are continuing to offer it as needed for certain fundamental or highly advanced skills.

Web-Based eLearning

Traditional hands-on training has evolved. Our web-based eLearning consists of both live, instructor-led sessions and on-demand courses, as well as supplemental content and valuable resources.

In the past, we had always believed and promoted the idea that hands-on training was the best way to learn. We hesitated to establish remote courses for fear of compromising the quality of training. Nevertheless, we did intend to at least try out remote learning, because of the many requests and high demand from students who want to limit travel expenses and time away from home. When COVID hit, we had no choice but to find a way to offer training remotely. Since then, we have been pleasantly surprised at the level of excellence we have been able to achieve and maintain in this new learning environment. Our web-based training has become so popular that we have now decided to expand our eLearning platform to continue meeting the needs of our students.
