COAST22

Avila Beach Pier

California Coastal Classes

Please join us for a very special three-stop educational adventure along the California Central Coast September 19-24. The schedule includes new education, fascinating tours and the comradery of the pack. We’ll conclude the tour in beautiful San Luis Obispo with a special retirement celebration honoring industry publishing legend, and all-around beautiful dude, Jim McCloskey.

Let’s roam and rock the coast! (Howling at the Moon is entirely optional.)

We begin very near the LAX airport in Culver City, CA with a 1-1/2 day waterproofing class and tour of Miracote’s local facility. Then we move up the coast a bit for a 1-1/2 day history of water in architecture class and tours of AquaStar and Riverflow by Current Systems’ facility. Then we travel even further up the coast to Avila Beach and San Luis Obispo for a 1-1/2 day ozone, U.V. and AOP workshop. Finally, we celebrate Jim McCloskey’s retirement from WaterShapes and WU!

There is something for everyone and you don’t need to commit to the whole coastal tour. You can sign up for 1, 2 or all 3 classes and there will be plenty of comradery along the way. We start with a construction class, then go into a design class and we wrap up with a more technical engineering course. All three classes are part of certain certifications.
