Stone, Tile, and Masonry Industry Education, Training, and Support
Fabricating, installing, repairing and restoring, and maintaining natural and engineered stone, tile, concrete, masonry, and related surfaces requires specialized training. As a surface industry service provider, owner, or manager, you need to make informed decisions based on a solid foundation of knowledge, skills, and experience, whether you are writing specifications, doing work on the job site, or diagnosing and resolving issues long after the installation is complete. No one person can possibly know and understand every type of material in every type of environment. That’s why Stone Forensics is closely affiliated with the SurpHaces Learning Institute, where beginners are trained to become skilled technicians and seasoned veterans can hone their skills and increase their knowledge.
Fred Hueston is an extraordinary instructor who is a highly experienced, world renowned expert in his field. He follows thoughtfully planned course outlines and provides tremendous resources and support designed to best prepare and launch his students for maximized success.
