Calce Company’s comprehensive training courses are carefully structured to give you the knowledge and skills you need to apply our products correctly, achieving the ideal result every time.
Training with Calce Company will leave you with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate as a qualified Applicator of our products.
different types of courses
Each course runs over a two-day period, combining theoretical and practical components for a hands-on, detailed experience. While each course maintains this same structure, products and techniques differ between each course.
ALL THINGS CALCE
This course is designed to teach the majority of our product range focusing on the appropriate preparation processes, application techniques, coat times, and sealing.
The masterclass is designed to expand on the All Things Calce Course, for those that are passionate about learning more niche finishes such as rust, metal, stencil and concrete effects.
MICROCEMENT'S ALL THAT
A dedicated bathroom training course that is a fast paced, so we recommend only booking if you have prior knowledge in Venetian Plaster. This course will run through the product range suitable for wet areas and their appropriate preparation process, application techniques, coat times, and sealing.
I completed my first training course with Aronne at the Wollongong Studio in 2019. This was a bathroom application training course that was very thoroughly planned in the correct procedures to apply the applicable products in different bathroom scenarios. I left there with the knowledge and inspiration to start my decorative finishes business. I have since attended another decorative training course with Tony in QLD to further my skill set and product knowledge. Both of my sons have also attended the training courses to advance their skill set for our family business. Since 2019, Aronne and Tony have helped me and my sons immensely. No question is a silly question, it's all about furthering your product and application knowledge.

Do you offer colour-matching?We have a current colour range that expands to 1,950 colours (NCS INDEX fan deck), but we can colour-match many high-end paint manufacturers' colours with our advanced colour lab.
How does the product perform in kitchens?In a kitchen, we recommend the use of a polyurethane. In terms of commercial-grade use, we have an epoxy that makes it 7 times stronger than concrete.
