Dream big, work hard and accomplish much.
Recruiting, training & retaining qualified flooring installers.
The professional floor covering industry is facing an unprecedented crisis. There is a shortage of installers coming into the trade.
The Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) was established with a primary focus of addressing the installation crisis currently impacting the floor covering industry.
The FCEF exists to provide access and/or incentives to individuals pursuing post-high school and continuing education career opportunities available within the floor covering industry.
The overall mission of the foundation is to provide awareness of the job opportunities and career pathways available in the floor covering industry, to connect individuals to training opportunities within the industry, to scholarship that training, and to place those individuals in jobs within the floor covering industry.
Let us help you be more successful and financially secure.
The flooring industry is experiencing a critical shortage of trained and certified flooring craftsmen. The crisis is expected to get significantly worse over the next ten years as the aging workforce retires and graduating high-schoolers choose alternate careers.
This industry-sponsored Foundation has began attacking one of the core issues – student recruitment and education. It will take industry-wide cooperation and support to make an impact as no one entity has the capacity to solve it on their own. It will bring industry leaders, educational institutions, retailers and others together to recruit, train, certify and place new flooring talent into great careers in the flooring trade.
