    Congrats! We just took the course ourselves. We've been doing pavers for a few years already and have learned many hard lessons that could have been avoided had we mandated the course from the start.

    I just took the training course & exam, won't know for another 30 days whether I passed or not, I'm sure I did though. Very good course, I recommend it as well to guys that have not taken it. I'm sure it will save us many mistakes along the way, especially with how well they go into detail on how to install your base & all the prep work that will make or break your installation. Who taught your course, btw?:)
