The UK’s premier manufacturer-backed training and development centre, the Academy for Excellence in Flooring received extraordinary interest in its range of courses for the installation of laminate, wood and vinyl flooring from beginner through to expert at The Flooring Show.
With the Quick-Step Master Installer scheme now in its third year of operation, interest from retailers and installers at this year’s show was exceptionally high. Keen to learn about the benefits of the scheme that certifies workmanship for two-years, visitors also discovered the many other opportunities available at the academy.
“It was great to tell installers and retailers about the Academy and how we are working hard to raise professional standards within the industry,” says Lee Thompson, technical and procurement manager for the Academy.
“From our foundation courses that give beginners the basic skills and knowledge to get them up and running to the Master Installer scheme designed to promote the very best installers direct to consumers, interest in the Academy was high. We’ve come away from The Flooring Show delighted that our message about improving installation standards for the benefit of all is gaining ground.”
With first class facilities and course content that constantly evolves with the input of attendees and the latest in installation innovations, the Academy has now passed over 400 Master Installers across the UK. All Master Installers are provided with a suite of benefits, including the Quick-Step backed workmanship warranty, full sampling and technical support, as well as being listed on the Quick-Step website that receives several thousand unique visitors every month.
