Aqua Mix has created the Independent Care & Maintenance Applicator program, a three-and-a-half-day course that includes hands-on and classroom training.

The course is designed to teach existing companies how to expand their services, and beginners how to become an independent care and maintenance professional. The program teaches participants about sealing, cleaning, refinishing, and troubleshooting hard surfaces in both residential and commercial installations. The class will also include instruction on estimating jobs, advertising materials and marketing strategies. The program began in the fall at the company's headquarters in Santa Fe Springs, Calif.
