HTC began offering instruction for floor solutions through HTC Academy in 2004. HTC Academy is the most up-to-date, advanced, comprehensive training covering all aspects of floor prep, hard surface refinishing (natural stone, overlay, hardwood, terrazzo and concrete), and the industry’s best practices / procedures. Class attendance is limited to support a comfortable learning environment.
The HTC Academy is an excellent forum to stay up-to-date with new floor concepts and industry changes. Constant developments within the flooring and concrete industries demand new methods and knowledge to remain competitive. The Academy Program is designed to teach new participants the basics while challenging seasoned operators with new techniques, best practices and industry news to keep them “in-the-know”.
The HTC Academy includes both classroom as well as hand-on instruction, allowing attendees to become familiar with HTC’s complete line of grinders, dust extractors, diamond tooling and chemicals.
