 Stone Forensics is offering another Stone and Tile Troubleshooting correspondence course and a live class

 Stone Forensics  is now offering its popular Stone Inspection Seminar on a self guided, voiced over powerpoint presentation. 
"I have had numerous requests to attend my popular stone inspectors class. The problem is I limit the number of attendees and cant spend an entire week away from your business. For this reason I have packaged the class into a self guided power point presentation that you can view and learn on your own.  This power point presentation covers the entire lecture portion of the class." says  Fred Hueston 
 The advantages of this self guided course is that you can view the slides over and over again.
The course included a bonus of three technical calls to. Fred if you have any questions.
Each slide is explained with a voice over so you can watch as well as listen. The presentation also includes the class manual.
This entire self guided presentation is less than half the price of the live course. For only $995.00. If you plan on attending the live course, a $500 discount off the $1995 admission fee is included.
The marble and stone inspection course covers all aspects of marble and stone such as marble,limestone, granite, terrazzo, slate, onyx and quartzite, engineered stone and their use in flooring and other applications.
