Established to improve installation standards within the floor coverings industry, the Quick-Step Academy for Excellence in Flooring has now become a benchmark of training for others to follow.
Now providing a growing number of Master Installers with the benefits of complete support from Quick-Step including a two-year warranty on all installation work, as well as providing foundation skills for those entering the industry, the Quick-Step Academy trains, tests and certifies to the very highest standards.
Installers entering the Academy can follow two paths with the same ultimate goal, to become a Quick-Step Master Installer and win valuable work because of this accreditation. Experienced fitters can enter the intensive three-day Master Installer course in either wood and laminate or LVT, while those with less experience can build good practice through the Foundation Level course, taking the first step in becoming a Master Installer.
Successful Master Installers – it is a strictly enforced pass or fail course – can access a huge range of benefits including:
• Listed as a certified installer on www.quick-step.co.uk
• Technical advice line
• Offers customers a free two-year warranty on installation work
• Carry the prestige of the Master Installer identity card
• Work towards an NVQ qualification
• Advance to become a TrustMark scheme member
• Clothing, van stickers and other marketing support
Qualified Master Installers have reported an uptake in work and improved customer satisfaction as major benefits of the scheme. With the number of Master Installers across the UK growing on a weekly basis it appears that the message is spreading fast too:
“Since we opened the Academy for Excellence in Flooring it has become regarded as the premier training facility in the UK for those installers looking to improve their wood, laminate and LVT skills,” comments Darren Robinson, training development and learning manager. “As more installers realise the benefits of bearing the Master Installer badge, the academy is busier than ever and this is testament that our initial ambition to improve standards in the industry is really beginning to take shape.”
Details of the courses, along with information on the benefits of being a Master Installer can be found on the new-look Quick-Step Academy website at www.quick-step-academy.co.uk
