(Delayed) Bahamas Training Center


(Delayed) Bahamas Training Center

This new training location will feature some truly awesome concepts.

Trainings held will be a new push for the locals who do not have any decorative concrete training to speak of.   Nationals are very hungry for this training and Vertical Artisans will lead the way.

Classes held over a period of time:

Flat Stamping

Cement overlays

Epoxy Overlays

Vertical Stamping

One Day Walls

Vertical Carving (Stonefacing)

Positive Carving (Natural rock)

and more.

Details are forth coming... 

I will be traveling down there to set up the system and scout for nice hotels and group rates.   This class will largely be held for locals and is open to main landers as well.

Location: Nassa Bahamas and a few other Islands

First Class Target

The first class looks to be July 29th - Aug 2nd

The  Bahamas are in desperate need of qualified locals to do the work that is pouring into their local economy.   

There are multiple casino type resorts and other effluent properties exploding all over the islands.   Most of the work goes to mainlanders and the local work force is used up in manual labour.   They want to change that by raising up local decorative concrete contractors and applicators of various methods.

Most of the trainings will be basic at first until we establish a good working base.  Then the big boys are coming in.

I will hold a webinar to show the scale of all that is happening .

I will have more data very soon ... I can hardly wait to share some of the concepts, networking, possible work, and really cool stuff we are going to fabricate in the island paradise.

Nathan, since I live only 1.5 hours from the Miami airport and I saw round trip air fair for about $350.  to get there ( it's only less that a 100 mile trip, the plane goes up and then comes down.) I will be quickly available to run over there for projects that interest me. It will be very hot that time of year. I would suggest the supply movable sun cover and hopefully fans. I have been to the bahamas on fishing trips more than 30 times over the years. If you can take an extra day before you go over there I will pick you up at the miami air port and bring you down to my house in Key Largo and take you out Ocean fishing. Dolphin are running this time of year. Keep me posted. I can go over with you to check it out if you would like. Kim
