Laticrete PTK Training Program ... specialized

This IS a "last minute" notification ... but ...

We have a "Specialized" Laticrete Educational & Training program schedulled for Monday & Tuesday of next week. January 11th & 12th here at the Laticrete HQ in CT.

In answer to a request from a Laticrete Canadian distributor and one of their key tile contractor customers we have created a customized program that will focus most of our presentations & hands-on segments on the materials, products, methods & concept of swimming pool tile & stone installations.

We have a few slots open for additional attendees ...!

Would YOU be interested in joining us for this program ..?


Henry

Henry- Can you include airfare and a coat?

I know airfare is not included. The class would be awesome though, but doesn't look like it will happen for me this time.

Connecticut in January. You jest, right?

Kidding. I encourage all who can to sign up. If you're from the Sun Belt buy a fur parka before you leave.

No worse than Charlotte was yesterday at 20 degrees. My buddy in FL is complaining too. Tossed his winter coats when he moved there.

Knowing I will probably never install tile in a pool I would still be interested in attending knowing that I`m quite sure I would learn something or many things I did not know & would probably use in some other type of application in the future . Although I would not want to take a valuable seat up for someone who may actually set pool tile.
Am waiting on a reply from a customer as to whether they will be ready next week & if not would love to attend ! I can get there in a few hours I believe ,are there accommodation arrangements?

I was just thinking, do these guys install exterior tiled swimming pools in CANADA? Seem like every other grout joint would need to be an expansion joint.

Must be interior pools, wouldn't be much of a swimming season anyway. Of course it could make a nice deep hockey rink for about 9 months a year.
