Hit the ground running with our training program.
Outdoor training options
Get hands-on training for your new Lil’ Bubba, lead by an experienced curber with operational and business knowledge. In our Introductory Curb Installation Class, you will learn the basics of proper curb installation including ground preparation, mixing, adding color, extruding, finishing, circles, straight lines, varying grades, stamping, sealing and many other installation techniques.
A second, more advanced day of training can also be scheduled. Our Advanced Curb Finishes Class includes instruction in more refined curb finishing techniques such as Moroccan Natural Stone.
Dress to get dirty because these are hands-on training courses and you will be doing the work, not just listening to an instructor. The classes run from 7:30am to 5:00pm with lunch included at our facility.
We feel that the Introductory Curb Installation class is a minimum requirement for anyone going into the curbing business, however many operators have started successful curbing businesses utilizing our training DVD and our customer support line. The hands-on training courses are highly rated by our customers and will help you avoid the pitfalls of learning by trial and error.
