Vermont Natural Coatings had its first student complete the company’s sand-and-finish seminar for professional flooring contractors.
Hunter Russell, a junior at Green Mountain Technology and Career Center, in Hyde Park, Vt., is the first graduate, according to the company.
“Hunter did an amazing job and seemed right at home among the professionals from Vermont and throughout the northeastern U.S. and Canada that made up the class,” Vermont Natural Coatings founder and president Andrew B. Meyer said in a statement. “He was exposed to the very latest technology used in sanding and finishing floors and made connections that very well could result in a summer apprenticeship program.”
Attendees earned National Wood Flooring Association credits for proper sanding techniques for various wood species; select finishing techniques that will yield top-quality results and the correct use, maintenance and repair of professional application equipment.
