Stone Forensics announced today that it will be conducting a Stone Inspector training program in January 2013 during Stone Expo in Las Vegas, NV. The program is designed to teach the basics of inspecting stone and ceramic tile installations.

According to Fred Hueston who will be conducting the training, "The amount of failures, poor installations and other issues with stone and tile flooring are on the rise. There are only a few qualified inspectors in the US and there are unfortunately few quality training opportunities in this discipline." The program is being offered in Las Vegas so students can observe failures of stone and tile installations in real time. "We will spend an entire day going on inspections as part of the class," says Fred Hueston.

The stone Inspectors program is a a full 5 days with the certification test on the last day. It is being offered the same week of StonExpo, the industry's largest trade show.

The program is only offered once per year and the class size is limited to 10 students. The cost of the class is $2500 per person.

The following is what will be covered in the comprehensive class:

  • The Geology of Stone
  • Understanding the Structure of Different kinds of stone and marble materials
  • Identification of stone and tile types
  • Quarry techniques that affect the final product
