All topics covered will be demonstrated by instructors to show the procedure. Then students will have the opportunity to get on machines and work what they have been shown for themselves. During this course, each student will fix a crack, polish a vertical and horizontal piece of stone, and hone and polish a floor section using one of our Klindex planetary and/or a Swing machines. And, don’t forget, we will be available after the official end of each days training session for students that wish to get some additional practice and to make sure students have a grasp of everything we covered.
