L&M Construction Chemicals successfully graduated 52 attendees in two, separate schools as part of our Distributor training schools educational program. An "accelerated" course held in Portland, Oregon on March 22-23 graduated 18 attendees and an "advanced" school held in Omaha, Nebraska graduated 34 attendees during the April 4-6 school.
I want to thank all the alumni for their enthusiastic response to the schools. As always, L&M's goal is to bring all the attendees up to speed on the new happenings in the concrete industry and inform them of new product changes where applicable.
I appreciate the numerous suggestions and comments during the schools. Those of us at L&M who structure these informative sessions, appreciate and continue to use your feedback to constantly improve and adjust the curriculum to make sure the school is filled with "fresh" information.
Again, I'd like to congratulate all the recent graduates. I am sure that you will all benefit from a few days of eating, learning, asking lots of good questions and of course, going away with an insight on product knowledge.
L&M also offers 1, 2 and 4- hour seminars that carry AIA learning units for those interested A/E firms you may be working with. These valuable and informative sessions are carried-out in a comfortable and informal luncheon session environment.
