American Sanders, a leader in the design and production of wood floor sanders, edgers, and finishes, announced dates for an expanded wood floor sand & finish training program in 2019. American Sanders initially launched its sand and finish training program in January of 2017 under the leadership of Daniel Boone, one of the most respected sand and finish experts in the industry. After two years of successfully training over 400 wood floor craftsmen at locations around the world, the company expanded the 2019 training program to include new locations and added an Advanced Contractor School. New school locations for 2019 include an American Sanders dedicated training center. The new training center will include Hands-on demo areas for sanding and finishing of residential flooring, commercial flooring, stairs, and large gym floors. It will be located at American Sanders Charlotte, NC facility, less than 100 miles from the company’s manufacturing plant in Sparta, NC. “We are excited to have this new space dedicated to training” said Brian Strickland, Senior VP of Commercial Operations. “We’re launching new programs in 2019 at this facility that include advanced techniques for the more experienced contractors and specialized training for our distributor representatives. This new facility significantly enhances the services we can provide to our customers.” The 2019 American Sanders Sand & Finish Schools begin in January and are hosted at numerous facilities around North America and Australia through November. American Sanders also offers a machine maintenance school for contractors to learn how to maintain their own equipment, and a machine service school for dedicated dealer service technicians.
