We are the Floor Covering Education Foundation

About the FCEF

We exist to bring awareness to the opportunities in the flooring industry, recruit new talent, aid in the funding of the student’s education, and facilitate job placement for these individuals into flooring industry careers.

Creating Awareness

Careers in flooring offer financial stability and fulfilling work. When it comes to trade careers, flooring installation may sometimes be overlooked, but is a key skill needed in virtually all construction and renovation projects.

Flooring installation is more than a job, it’s a craft. Floors provide functional structure but also provide beauty to a space.

Our Purpose

The FCEF was established to assist the floor covering industry in several ways depending on the current needs of the industry. Our three primary areas of focus are recruitment, scholarships and placement.



Finding the right talent for flooring careers is imperative. Hard-working motivated individuals can make a great living in floor covering while having a satisfying career. We search for these individuals who want to take pride in their work and offer their customers superb craftsmanship.


Our scholarships reward those individuals looking to improve their lives and trade up to a more fulfilling career. This financial incentive makes training and getting started in a flooring career accessible and achievable.


In addition to recruiting and training, we exist to provide support to the flooring industry to match qualified workers with job opportunities and continue to help them grow their careers.
