Hands-On-Training. Almost everything you could possibly face in
the field you will deal with here. Bob Harris will orchestrate a
fast paced schedule with no time to waste over the Four Days as
we template and pour on actual cabinets, not just imaginary rectangles.
Finished pieces will be placed and shimmed and set. We will form
and pour an integral backsplash in place. Countertops will be intentionally
out of square, walls out of plumb, cabinets will be out of level
or need structural enforcement… Under-mount sinks will be
installed… We will cover everything except for plumbing!
If you are looking for intense training, you owe it to yourself
to come to Bob Harris’s Independent and unbiased casting,
pre-casting and countertop training event and learn to make your
own mix and the features and benefits of the Five Leading Bag Mixes
in the Industry.
students have to say about this class:
Just wanted to say what a pleasure it was meeting you and your wife. The class was one of the best experiences I have had being trained in a certain skill set. I have come back home with a ton of information and cannot wait to practice. Ron was so helpful as well, explaining certain steps when you were busy with other students. I look forward to taking more classes with DCI in the future...Scott Herndon
