ISFA Certified Professional Solid Surface Fabrication Training

Sponsored by:
Aristech Surfaces now part of Trinseo

Program Overview

This ISFA Certified Professional Solid Surface Fabrication Training program is the gold standard course for fabricating solid surface. The program is recognized by all major manufacturers and their network of certified fabricator partners.

This hands-on, two-day session provides attendees with the skills and knowledge in all facets of the fabrication process, including layout, templating, seaming, support, sanding, edges, cutouts, backsplashes, thermoforming, finishing and installation. Participants will complete a vanity application which includes an integral bowl sink, built-up edge profile, edge inlay and examples of coved as well as set-on style backsplash.

An observer option is also available. This is designed for those with roles adjacent to fabrication but would benefit from the context around the process, such as sales or marketing associates. Observers do not actively participate in the hands-on project, but they can watch, ask questions and otherwise participate in the sessions. Observer space is limited. Contact [email protected] for availability.
