“Getting the certification meant a lot to the Supervisor I sent to St. Cloud to get certified. He and the crew who got the training locally valued the investment we made to develop their skills. It was a good investment. The floors they applied your product to look great, and we saved a lot of money in reduced maintenance costs over the long term.”

My team and I attended the EPIC training at Ultra Durable Technologies. We are very experienced business owners and floor technicians. The trainers were very thorough and knowledgeable of the products, services, and sales systems. They were able to answer all of our questions and concerns. We were very pleased and satisfied with the level of professionalism, skills, and knowledge that UDT provided during the training seminar.
