The Master Installer programme at the Quick-Step Academy has cemented the training centre’s reputation as the number one destination for installers looking to expand their skillset and reap the rewards that come with being accredited by one of the largest flooring manufacturers in the world.
Providing exceptional value for money, the intensive three-day Master Installer course has proved a worthwhile investment for many fitters, with numerous trainees reporting a direct increase in sales after completing the programme. Designed for professionals with at least two year’s experience of wood and laminate flooring installations, the course builds upon existing knowledge of evaluations, screeds and adhesives as well as the technicalities of more intricate fittings.
“The Master Installer course is incredibly comprehensive, and for its entire duration fitters undergo a series of installation challenges before being assessed on the final day,” comments Darren Robinson, training and development manager, Quick-Step Academy. “But crucially, unlike many other schemes, we do not just hand our trainees a certificate after completion before showing them the door for good. Instead, we actively work to promote their skills and workmanship to consumers through a variety of channels to ensure that the course is worth their time and effort.”
All Master Installers will have their details on the ‘find an installer’ section of the main consumer Quick-Step website at www.quick-step.co.uk, which receives thousands of visits per month, and retailers will have access to specialist point of sale and marketing support if they offer the Master Installer service.
“Thanks to our dedicated marketing efforts, consumers are now very aware that they simply will not get the same benefits if they do not use an approved Master Installer. The two year manufacturer’s guarantee that supports all Quick-Step Master installations is a serious attraction in these austere times, so we encourage fitters to find out just how we can help their business.”
Other advantages of becoming a Master Installer include the ability to qualify for the government-backed TrustMark scheme for tradespersons and access to Master Installer clothing and van stickers.
