Resulting in an accreditation from the largest flooring manufacturer in the world, eligibility to join the government-backed TrustMark scheme and one year’s free membership to the National Institute of Carpet and Floorlayers (NICF), the Master Installer course from the Quick-Step Academy undoubtedly offers some of the best industry rewards.
The incredibly comprehensive three-day course builds upon existing knowledge of evaluations, screeds and adhesives as well as the technicalities of intricate fittings. Designed for professionals with at least two year’s experience of wood and laminate installations, the course costs just £529, which is exceptional value for money when the advantages it offers are taken into account.
These industry-leading benefits include accreditation on the Quick-Step consumer website, www.quick-step.co.uk, which reaches in excess of 380,000 UK consumers each year. Those who purchase Quick-Step flooring are encouraged to use a Master Installer for the installation due to the free two-year installation warranty that only Master Installers can provide. Master Installers are able to apply for government-backed TrustMark accreditation at a heavily discounted rate, and the NICF Master Fitter membership is free for 12 months and helps to further boost a Master Installer’s reputation amongst cautious homeowners.
What is more, Master Installers will have the chance to work closely with Dulux’s interior designers stationed across the UK, who specify nearly 50,000m2 of flooring per year. Thanks to the Quick-Step Academy’s continuing efforts to forge new partnerships, Dulux has now confirmed that they will channel Quick-Step floor fittings to Master Installers, with many already receiving work. Similarly, B&Q has now partnered with the Quick-Step Academy to provide a Master Installation services from its stores.
“More and more floor fitters are realising the benefits that the Master Installer course brings, so we are seeing a big surge in bookings and places are going fast,” comments Darren Robinson, training and development manager, Quick-Step Academy. “In today’s competitive market and with heightened awareness when it comes to rogue traders, consumers are being increasingly picky and quite rightly demand endorsed installers. With the two-year installation guarantee that Quick-Step promises with any Master installation, as well as the Master Installer’s NICF membership, homeowners are instantly reassured. With the chance for approved fitters to become TrustMark accredited too, it really does prove that investing in the Master Installer course is one of the most worthwhile things a fitter can do.”
The Quick-Step Academy also has stands at various exhibitions and shows across the UK to promote the importance of using Master Installers.
