The Academy for Excellence in Flooring Open for Training

The Academy for Excellence in Flooring is open for training, with a series of measures that ensure the protection and safety of all trainees and colleagues.

The Academy has been able to ensure its continued programme of training at both Foundation and Master Installer level by limiting courses to four candidates. As this has caused higher demand than normal, flooring professionals are being encouraged to contact the Academy directly to discuss availability and current programmes. 

Upon arrival, delegates will be allocated a seat, separated at distances of 2m, and this remains theirs throughout the course (one-day or two-day duration). The same pre-assignment of areas also applies for training bays. All materials and tools are pre-sanitised and prepared with trainees using only allocated equipment. 

The Academy is also allocating all candidates with individual catering, closing the kitchen and shop area until it is deemed safe to reopen for candidates. Academy clothing can still be purchased through a member of staff. Sanitisation points have also been implemented throughout the centre to encourage the regular cleaning of hands when travelling around the Academy. The wearing of face masks is also being encouraged wherever social distancing is not possible. 

Lee Thompson, Procurement and Technical manager, said: “We’re delighted to be training again at Academy and our recent courses have been able to provide installers with skills as they capitalise on the widespread pent-up demand the industry has been experiencing.

“We’ve taken every possible measure to protect our colleagues and course attendees and we’re on hand to help alleviate any fears or concerns about the course before booking your place.”
