Brabson, who recently took over the class, knows that his students need outstanding job skills in a field that is profitable, interesting and has a ready market. Decorative concrete matches those requirements to a tee.
After considerable research on how to provide his students with the best decorative concrete skills to put them ahead of the competition in the job world, Brabson chose Engrave-A-Crete processes as the ideal fit.
Brabson wanted to make the most of an opportunity to show students and others the awesome design possibilities available with decorative concrete.
He chose the 3D Block pattern, provided by Engrave-A-Crete Senior Tech Advisor Chris Mirabal, as an impressive project for the students to install on a floor of the Job Corp facility.
During the class sessions, students learned to lay out and install the complicated looking design, use Concrete Resurrection stains correctly to give it the 3D effect, and properly seal it.
Students involved in the class quickly spread the word. They were excited about learning skills that lead to a lucrative career, and they were proud of their accomplishments. Fellow students, faculty members and administrators came to admire the work. One of the students is shown at the right.
The end product was quite impressive. So much so, in fact, that additional students have already signed up for the next decorative concrete class.
The slogan at Jacobs Creek Job Corp is Success Lasts a Lifetime. Brabson’s students are living proof as they enjoy the success of their efforts while continuing to build lifetime decorative concrete skills.
Herbert Brabson and the Jacobs Creek Job Corp – Engrave-A-Crete salutes you for excellence in education and your positive impact on the decorative concrete industry. Keep up the good work!
