Concrete is hard. In every sense of the word. But it’s also fulfilling. There is no better feeling than creating amazing works of art with concrete – and getting paid for them by happy customers!
Do you want 2020 to be the year that you finally make the leap and start making money doing something you love?
You can, with CCI training. Because CCI training WORKS.
It’s that simple. Want proof? Look at the amazing creations that our alumni from around the world make. The real proof of a training program is the success of the alumni.
It takes more than showing up for 5 days and playing with concrete with some cool people. The truly hard work starts when you go home, and that’s when CCI’s program really kicks in.
How do we do it?
First of all, we teach you not just how, but why. You will truly understand, not just follow someone else’s technique blindly.
You get 100% dedicated, lifetime support post-class. The entire CCI staff will be dedicated to supporting you. We are here for your success.
You get extensive documentation and turn-key systems for running your business. You will leave class with hundreds of pages of both technical and business documentation and systems, including exactly how to market and sell creative concrete. You’ll get a contract, sales scripts, pricing worksheet, quality checklists, and much more.
We are here to build your knowledge, your confidence, and your success. Our focus is 100% on our alumni, not on ourselves. It’s all we do, day in and day out, year in and year out. We have the perspective of the entire community of CCI alumni all over the world, and we know exactly what works and what doesn’t, proven over and over.
In this class, you will see firsthand the results that CCI training will give you, because this class will be taught by and held at the working shop of CCI Alumnus Brett Carragher of Exclusive Concrete. Brett started in 2013, so you get the added benefit of seeing exactly how Brett took the training from CCI and built a successful business.
You will also join the global community of CCI alumni like Brett – join the community that cares about you and your success.

What you will learn:
What you will receive:
Yes, if you go home and work hard and apply what you learned. And take advantage of our 100% dedicated, lifetime support.
But don’t take our word for it, look at the CCI Alumni Success Stories. When you become a CCI Alumnus, you have far more than training – you have a life-long network of supportive colleagues.
Yes! If you drive to class, take home one of the class projects! (We will draw names if we have more drivers than class projects.) We don’t sell our class projects, they become part of YOUR portfolio.
At CCI, we are 100% dedicated to building your knowledge, your confidence, and your success. And we’re really good at it! But don’t take our word for it. Look at the success stories of our alumni. THAT’s the proof that a training program actually works.
And in fact, you will witness this firsthand at the Feb 24-27, 2020 class, held at the working shop of a CCI Alumnus!
CCI training is the only program that:
– Teaches not just how, but why.
– Offers 100% dedicated, lifetime support post-class.
– Includes extensive documentation and turn-key systems for running your business.
– Has PROOF that this program works, demonstrated by our successful alumni.
We are here to build your knowledge, your confidence, and your success.
It’s all we do, day in and day out, year in and year out. We have the perspective of the entire community of CCI alumni all over the world, and we know exactly what works and what doesn’t, proven over and over.
When you train with CCI, you join a community that cares about YOU and your success.
1. You will learn fundamental knowledge and a true understanding of not just how, but why.
GFRC is a highly specialized material with decades of research that show it requires certain fundamental ingredients and construction techniques in order to perform as expected. When done right, GFRC is extremely strong, flexible (literally) and durable.
When you understand not just how, but why, you will have 100% confidence in your GFRC made with these techniques – after all, those who construct massive building panels have relied on them for decades.
Engineers make things only as complicated as they need to be so that the building or bridge doesn’t fall down. Be certain your GFRC creations won’t fail by relying on sound engineering principles. The laws of physics don’t change, so that’s why our information doesn’t change with the seasons.
2. You will make a sound investment of your money.
There are cheap classes out there. There is only one reason a vendor would offer free/cheap hands-on training, and that is to sell product. We prefer to price our training based on its value, making it a sound investment for professionals interested in long-term good business practices.
There are also expensive classes that emphasize fabric forming. The value of learning the fundamentals of GFRC, of truly understanding not just how but why, is far greater than the value of spending a day and a half sanding a fabric formed mold. Fabric forming is just one tool in your toolbox. It won’t make you successful. Fundamental technical understanding will.
But don’t take our word for it. CCI alumni have proved over and over that CCI training WORKS. As Jeff says, “I don’t need to brag about my own accomplishments, when so many of my alumni all over the world have used CCI training to build a foundation that made them successful.” That’s the real proof that training is worthwhile. See the proof here.
3. Practical considerations of the ease of travel, plus the class experience.
Consider also when choosing a class, the ease of travel to the friendly and fun town of Raleigh, NC. Our shop and the recommended hotel in downtown Raleigh are located an easy 20-minute drive or $40 cab ride from the airport. Experience a fun town with a vibrant downtown scene. In downtown Raleigh there are 90 bars and restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. Click here for more information about accommodations and things to do in Raleigh.
Our London, ON location, at the working shop of CCI Alumnus Brett Carragher of Exclusive Concrete, is also convenient to travel to, with a local airport, and has a wide selection of dining and entertainment options.
Our new location at the working shop of CCI Alumnus Caleb Lawson of Price Concrete Studio is in Orlando, FL! Enough said!
The Ultimate Creative Concrete Training class is offered approximately quarterly. See above for the upcoming class dates.
The upcoming class in London, ON is $4995 Canadian dollars. Click here to register.
Breakfast, hot lunch and all class materials (textbook, mix calculator, videos and more) are included, plus all the benefits listed above.
The Ultimate class is limited to 15 students.
This class is for people serious about starting and succeeding in a business creating countertops, sinks, furniture, fire pits and more with concrete. You do not need prior concrete experience, but you do need to be very handy and capable of professional level crafts such as carpentry, tile work, home building, etc. This class is not for do-it-yourselfers. Consider the Level 1 self-study course instead.
