    I am currently in the marble/stone restoration industry. I have been asked to do a few inspections this year, and limped my way through it. I always like to educate myself as much as possible, I never stop learning or think I know it all!! Are there any recommendations for this industry? Obviously with my background I am looking at the hard surface arena for inspections. I have seen the FCITS in Georgia, was wondering how this is and if there are any others. Thanks.

    Elmer Fudd will know, standby.

    I think the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) still offers inspection training for ceramic in South Carolina.

    Good question, I would like to know a few, and the most credible for Stone specifically.

    Stone forensics I think is doing training. He did a talk in the inspector symposium the day before Surfaces one year. I can't remember his name but is 30 years in the stone trade and very good. He gets called to inspect jobs all over the place. https://www.stoneforensics.com/

    That would be Fred Hueston.

    The training is discussed here. https://www.stoneforensics.com/training.html

    I was wondering if Fred was teaching an inspection class, that kind of money is up there, but it's got some backing, I don't think I'd want to be the opposition to his knowledge in a courtroom.
    I took his restoration course years ago in Longwood Florida, learned a lot.
    I'd also contact Marble Institute of America for an Entire List of schools.
