Why get training?
Hands on Training to Make Your Business a Success!
Many people think, because curbing looks so easy in the video that they do not need training. Is training really needed to operate a successful business? In our judgment the answer is a booming YES. Hands on training takes the pain out of starting a business. You can spend the first couple of months making lots of mistakes that will cost you time and money or you can take a short 2-day training course and hit the ground running.
What makes our training the best.
Personalized - We keep our training classes very small so that you have one on one interaction with the trainer. Small classes also give you more time hands on with the curb machine and tools.
Bring your crew - For one flat rate, bring your whole crew if you want. You want everyone on your crew to be trained in there specific jobs.
Flexibility - We can train you at your location or at our facility. Training you at our facility allows you to try different types of machinery and tools before you buy. It also allows us to do training in any kind of weather. Training at your location can save you in travel costs. It also allows us to train you with the specific materials(sand, cement, etc.) that you will be using in your area. Sand and cement are natural products that vary a great deal across the United States. We can help you solve the specific problems that you will encounter in your geographical location.
Experience - You can be confident you are learning from the experts. Curb
King has years of experience with concrete curbing crews and knows
what works and what will make you successful.
