The Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) has approved Advanced Flooring Technology (AFT) as a training provider and for its new Six-Week Course on carpet and LVP installation to receive scholarship funds, announced AFT’s founder Robert Varden.
Founded in 1988, AFT provides knowledge and skills training in Custom Seaming, Carpet Pattern Correction, Residential Resilient Installation, Commercial Resilient Installation, LVP Installation, and a Six-Week Classroom and On-The-Job Carpet & LVP Course.
The Six-Week Course is open to new, untrained hires employed with dealers or contractors. Three training phases combine classroom and on-the-job experience that build upon each other, from a basic introduction in Phase 1 to more intensity and depth in carpet and LVP installation in Phases 2 and 3.
“We’re very happy to add Advanced Flooring Technology to our list of training providers authorized to receive our scholarships. Robert’s Installation knowledge and skills are known throughout the industry,” remarked Jim Aaron, executive director of FCEF. “We’re confident the students participating in AFT’s classes will receive excellent instruction as they embark on a new flooring installation career.”
“We are truly grateful to Jim and FCEF for their vote of confidence in what we are doing. Already we are seeing results and looking at expanding this opportunity to train up the next generation of installers,” stated Varden.
