Flooring Academy Adds Focus On Contract Flooring

THE former Quick-Step Academy for Excellence in Flooring has become the Academy for Excellence in Flooring Powered by Quick-Step and Pergo.
This follows the recent acquisition by Quick-Step of the Pergo brand. The Pergo Master Pro Installer title will be awarded for successful completion of courses designed for the contract market, or Quick-Step Master Installer for residential installations.
The three-day Pergo Master Pro Installer course focuses on installers with a minimum two years’ experience who have good technical knowledge. It aims to sharpen skills and knowledge required for contact wood and laminate installations.
Topics include product knowledge and site conditions, as well as interpretation of plans, evaluation of environmental restrictions, standards and legislations, custom installations and replacement of damaged panels.
Successful candidates are supported by Pergo for three years, enjoying the benefits of recommendations and a warranty on work.
Darren Robinson, training learning and development manager, explains: ‘The rebrand of the Academy reflects the different demands on installers by the contract and residential sectors.
Course dates will be announced soon.
