QA Card Subfloor Preparation

Individual course duration is one day. It is assumed that delegates are practicing installers and in a position to have their skills assessed. The key purpose of the programme is to assess and recognise a fitter’s ability and to re-enforce best practice for fitting. This is done through a mixture of classroom based instruction, practical demonstrations and assessment. All our instructors are highly experienced and possess specialist knowledge of the flooring industry. Delegates are invited to arrive at 8:30am for a 9:00am prompt start.
