Balterio, Academy for Excellence in Flooring, Tomorrow's Contract Floors

The Academy for Excellence has announced a new accreditation scheme for installers of leading laminate brand, Balterio.

The Balterio Master Installer programme delivers a suite of benefits for professional fitters, most notable a Lifetime Warranty on all installation work of Balterio laminate products. Alongside, qualified professionals receive an exclusive Master Installer ID card, branded clothing, full sampling and access to a dedicated technical helpline.

Lee Thompson, Technical Manager at the Academy, says: “The Master Installer scheme is a well-proven formula that has a track-record of success for major flooring brands and so we could take this model directly to Balterio laminate floors, using the same lifetime warranty on all workmanship to support the brand’s high-quality laminate collections.

“Balterio is considered a premium brand by consumers and so they demand the very best in professionalism from those installing it. The Balterio Master Installer scheme and the supporting Lifetime Warranty is an easy, confidence-inspiring way for consumers to find the best fitters and to guarantee that their investment in a Balterio laminate floor is installed to the highest standard.”

The Balterio Master Installer programme is only available to professionals with a minimum two-years of installation experience. After a three-day training course involving the pass or fail assessment of practical, theoretical and technical knowledge; qualifying attendees are then awarded Balterio Master Installer status. For those already with Quick-Step Master Installer status but wishing to add extra depth to their qualifications, a separate course to gain accreditation is offered.
