If you are looking for a career change and want to learn a valuable trade, we offer a 3-day or a 5-day epoxy training class. Whether you are new to epoxy resin or have limited experience, we offer a epoxy class to become certified in epoxy coatings, countertops and resinous flooring.
Epoxy Training Center

You will learn product selection, tools and equipment, followed by the opportunity to physically apply the epoxy. This will work to your advantage for a number of reasons. One, you will get accustomed to the equipment and tools you need to install these floors in the field. You will also get answers to all the questions you may have about the installation process and the materials required. If you are a beginner in this field, you will get to see the experts at work and learn the necessary tricks for a perfect finish. You will also get enough practice before you can start doing these floors for your clients.

During this time, you will learn how to do moisture testing, use moisture barriers, do flooring repair and leveling, use primers and base coats, what tools and equipment you need, and how to estimate pricing for a job. You get hands-on experience that will be invaluable to your business in all types of epoxy applications, including solid colors, flakes, glitter, and urethane coatings. This course is helpful for beginners and those who have worked with epoxy resin before. This course is hands-on, with minimal time spent in the classroom and you will be operating machinery, removal tooling and epoxy applications.
Epoxy Training Programs: 3-Day vs. 5-Day
The 3-day training program was simply created as a condensed version of our 5-day training program and was facilitated for the sheer purpose of being able to provide a crash course with rapid lessons and prompt insight on polished concrete and architectural (decorative) concrete flooring applications and installing epoxy coating and protective flake/ chip flooring systems. We created this 3-day training program as a sampling course for the individuals and experts who already have experience in the concrete surface prep and floor coating industry's or may have previously worked in the field, so they might not need as much time spent on the fine details and classroom specifics that are imperative to newcomers and amateurs. This 3-day training program is also ideal for those who may just need a little help in refreshing their personal knowledge and industry experience.
