The Concrete Countertop Institute has announced brand-new classes for aspiring creative concrete professionals:
GFRC & Fabric Forming, 2 days
This class gives pros a solid technical understanding of from-scratch GFRC mix design and casting, as well as creative mold making using fabric forming and more. Graduates will be able to make high quality GFRC creations such as countertops and sinks right away, with ongoing support and extensive reference materials. www.concretecountertopinstitute.com/gfrc-fabric-form-training/
3-D Mold Making, 1 day
This class teaches pros to go beyond flat slabs and the occasional fabric formed sink, and understand the fundamental mold making principles and structural considerations involved in 3-D molds. They will be able to expand their portfolios with fire pits, furniture, and more.
Advanced Finishes with ECC, 2 days
This class allows pros to take their concrete creations to the next level with amazing looks such as pressed, veined, marbelized, sprayed, troweled, glazed and more. It also introduces ECC, which is a specialized form of concrete that relies on PVA fibers and very fine aggregates to create concrete that has astoundingly high flexural strength and crack resistance. Both GFRC and ECC are used to create the looks.

You can also combine all 3 classes at a discounted price. Additionally, registrants for the Ultimate class receive a complete, turn-key system for a creative concrete business, including marketing, selling, pricing, project management, quality control and more. https://concretecountertopinstitute.com/ultimate-creative-concrete-countertop-training/
