Unlock the Key to Career Progression at the Academy

Progress your career at the Academy for Excellence in Flooring

Time spent at the Academy for Excellence in Flooring will accelerate your career progression. With a range of courses to choose from, you can find a way to boost your skills, improve your knowledge and take another step on the career ladder. 

For those installers just starting out, or employers looking to upskill their workforce, the Foundation Installer course is the right one to choose. Over two-days, the course covers the basics of wood and laminate or vinyl flooring installation to give a good understanding of the fundamental principles behind a high standard of workmanship. 

Once this course has been completed, or you have over two-years’ experience in floor fitting, then the advanced Master Installer course is the one to pick. This three-day programme unlocks the exclusive and accredited Master Installer badge, and you’ll leave as a highly skilled professional that can offer a lifetime workmanship warranty whenever you install Quick-Step floors. 

Lee Thompson from the Academy for Excellence in Flooring says: “Whether you are just starting out on your career in flooring or have been around for a while, your time at the Academy will be highly rewarding. Our trainers are all experienced fitters, so they understand the issues that can arise on site and how best to solve them. This makes a difference when putting on a course that is genuinely useful and which will make itself felt when it comes to moving along in your career.”

The Master Installer badge is responsible for progressing the careers of installers around the country, with badge holders saying that it has established them in new locations, improved customer confidence and trust, and has helped to win new work through a listing on the Quick-Step website. 

For companies looking to improve the skills and knowledge of teams, the Academy can also develop bespoke courses to meet specific training requirements. General courses are held at the Academy’s advanced training facility in Knowsley, Liverpool.
