They are amazing!! Scott is so helpful when you have questions, and actually calls back the second he is available. They answered all my initial questions in detail and helped me get my business up and running. I literally couldn't have achieved this successful venture without them 🙂

Scott was fantastic from the very beginning of our endeavour. In fact our first phone call with him was on a weekend and he answered every single one of our questions about opening our own studio. The training he provided was one on one and will definitely be the foundation of growing our business.

We knew we wanted to open our own business within the Arts and stumbled across this training. Of course, it is natural at first to be a bit pessimistic recognizing they are product distributors as well but Scott 100% made the difference in us realizing our dream. There are no obligations attached to the training but at the same time you will want to work with them as they have amazing resources, products and knowledge. The training is worth every penny and will create a connection that is absolutely needed to be successful. Thanks to everyone at Ceramic Arts for all your support, guidance and outstanding customer service. A rare find in the service industry these days.
