Flooring Craftsmen Needed to Make Up for the Current Shortage

Accessible Training for Tomorrow’s Flooring Craftsmen

One of the contributing factors leading to the enormous lack of qualified flooring installers is the absence of any structured training program within the technical and community college systems. Other trades, with which we compete for talent, have long been present in these vital community-based education centers. We at the FCEF strongly believe that the duplication of a viable and sustainable technical college program across the country will be essential in making long-term progress in mitigating the installation labor issue.

We’ve worked with our Flooring Education Training Providers (FETPs) to develop a course that covers all flooring types along with the basic skills that apply to all flooring types. From measuring to installing and even working with customers, this course provides a solid foundation for a successful flooring craftsman career.
