There’s nothing quite like some good, old fashioned hands-on training. The kind you get at the Brickform Contractor Education Seminar. If the Decorative Concrete Fair was a buffet of decorative concrete knowledge, the Contractor Education Seminar is a gourmet dinner. Where the Decorative Concrete Fair exposed you to a wide variety of skills in a more abstract way, Contractor Education Seminars offer two days of hands-on, in-depth training on the core skills of decorative concrete.


We host Contractor Education Seminars every year in Springfield, IL and Rialto, CA during the Spring and Fall seasons. These training programs offer a comprehensive look at core decorative concrete skills such as finishing and placement, stamping, staining, and sealing. Here is a brief outline of the 2017 Fall Training in Rialto:
