Concrete is a custom material that commands high prices from wealthy clients. Exactly the kind of business you want to grow right now.
If there was ever a year to make big changes and finally take the time to invest in yourself and your future, 2020 is it.
Don’t let anybody tell you you can’t. You can attend a class, you can start a business, you can be successful, despite 2020. You can free yourself from everything that’s been holding you back.
The name is a joke, of course, but this is serious business. This is The Ultimate Creative Concrete Training. If you want to be free to be successful being creative with concrete, you need to build that creativity on a solid foundation of knowledge and support.
And that’s exactly what CCI training gives you.
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.
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 fact, this course is taught by one of those star alumni, Brett Carragher of Exclusive Concrete in London, ON.
In 2013, Brett told his wife, “I’m quitting my job, and I’m going to make concrete countertops.” He quit his high paying but high stress job as a carpentry general foreman for a large commercial concrete construction company, and trained with CCI.
In the subsequent 7 years, Brett has poured hard work, dedication and creativity into perfecting his craft and building his success with creative concrete. In this class, he will teach you to do the same.
You will join Brett and the entire group of successful CCI alumni who are part of the most intensive creative concrete training and support program ever offered.
You will receive lifetime personal support from both Brett and CCI founder Jeff Girard.
You will be a part of a community that cares about you and your success.

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 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.
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.
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.
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.
