(f) Sanding and Finishing

6 modules


libby longstreth



14 credit hours (worth 14 CECs) This is a big course. The first unit, Sanding, covers all wood floor prep techniques and issues as well as staining. The issues are discussed in reference to each step in floor preparation as well as what they might look like in the finished floor. The same applies to staining. 

It seemed natural to break between sanding/staining and make a separate module for finishing as staining follows sanding immediately, while finishing isn't done for several days to a week after staining is done. 

There is no way to memorize all the information. Get a general feel. You are strongly encouraged to download all the documents associated with this course. Keep them on your computer as a reference library that you can refer to when you encounter questions in the field. If you have questions, you can also call me, 209-869-5994 PST, nights and weekends OK, or email me at Libby10@sbcglobal.net. 

Quizzes are not tricky. They must be passed BUT you can take them over as many times as you need to and no one will know. In addition, if you make a mistake on a quiz and I thought that additional information might help avoid that mistake in the future, I will let you know that after you submit your quiz. The second time should be easier. 

As always, if you have questions, comments or complaints, I want to hear. I can and do make changes. You are more in charge than you think. 


Understanding the process of sanding, staining and finishing. 

Understand the objectives and pitfalls in each step. 

Recognize problems that may result from any of these processes. 

Get a leg up on industry lingo, which can be confusing. 


By completing/passing this course, you will attain the certificate cert2
