Orders must be received by 2PM EST for same day shipping

ABC Concrete Cutting, Inc developed their training videos several years ago in an effort to make sure all of their new employees were exposed to the consistent training materials. We relied on the collective experience of our employees to write the scripts for the videos. The training videos were professionally video taped and edited. They are television quality productions containing information not available anywhere else.

ABC Concrete Cutting, Inc has sold hundreds of the videos from coast to coast to concrete cutting contractors, tool rental companies, diamond blade manufacturers, labor union training facilities along with electrical and plumbing contractors. The videos are available in either VHS or DVD formats.

If you have ever been frustrated with your employees in their efforts to use diamond tools, you owe it to yourself to give this video training a try. ABC Concrete Cutting, Inc completes over two thousand jobs a month during the summer months. This is an inexpensive way to capitalize on their experience.

Each video comes with the script and a short test so you can see if your employees have an understanding of the material.
