Imprinted Concrete training course

Our imprinted concrete training course is designed for those that are new to the industry, or those who want to develop their existing practical experience through structured training. The course takes place over 2 days, the first day focusses on imprinted concrete theory followed by practical application on day two.

Wallcrete (Wall render) training course

Our wall render training course provides those attendees with a thorough understanding of the Wallcrete system and the skills involved in application. We also explore the business opportunity on offer when adding wall render to your skillset and will look at the size of the market, the investment required to get started, achievable profit targets and how to reach them.

PICSPAVE (Imprinted Concrete) Evaluation Presentation

The objective of this free half day presentation is to enable you to evaluate the benefits of starting a new business in this field or adding the installation and marketing of PICSPAVE to your current business.

You will discuss the financial costs and profit potential, along with the marketing input required to successfully build and market PICSPAVE in your local area.

You will understand all the costs involved in setting up a team of installers, covering the tools, equipment and training requirements, along with successful marketing strategies which the team at PICS have gained from years of working with many of the most successful companies in the industry. We will provide an opportunity to plan for the next step forward and agree an action plan specifically for your business.

WALLCRETE On-site Training

The WALLCRETE training day thoroughly covers the theory and practical aspects of the system; because the installation process is not particularly time critical we have found that there is seldom the need for further on site training, particularly for those already involved in the imprinted concrete industry. As installers gain experience and develop their skills, questions are bound to arise but these can normally be handled very well with a telephone call to our technical department.

If you feel on-site training would be beneficial we are happy to attend to offer advice on any of the stages of the process, whether that be:

  • Initial Planning and Preparation.
  • Applying WALLCRETE and Imprinting the render.
  • Carving the wall after imprinting.
  • Colouring and sealing.
PICSBOND Evaluation Presentation

PICS provide the theory and skills required to install both the PICSBOND Trowel Down and PICSBOND Broadcast systems with an understanding of the products and alternatives available.

All tools, consumable materials, and base preparation required for successful overlays will be discussed, with additional focus on marketing and promotional activities to ensure that sales opportunities are effectively exploited.

There is additional information provided to consider using the Picspave Textured Skin and exposed aggregate methods of using concrete if a complete paving replacement is necessary.

PICSBOND On-site Training

PICS will carry out on-site training to order, both inside and outside the UK. All material requirements will be organised and delivered to site prior to the training being undertaken, and necessary site preparation and plans for the design and layout of the project will be discussed with the trainer beforehand.
