How can we help?


Will there be hands on demonstration?

Absolutely. We will have a boat in the shop to work on. We typically focus on the hull sides. All the Starke products, pads and machines will be on display and available for use.

Will there be classroom work?

Yes. We like to sit down and go over some over the basics. We will have a presentation and slideshow. We start by introducing everyone.We like to ask why each person came and what they wanted to gain from this experience. Once we figure that out we can then dial in the message to focus on where everyone needs the most information.

Is this an accreditation course?

Yes. Sign up for this course to become a Starke Certified Installer and be listed on our site and receive special discounts on Starke products.

If I am a DIYer, can I attend this course.

Absolutely. This class is for the professional or the enthusiast. The techniques we will be teaching work across the board.
