Floor covering installation is a specialized trade with a variety of career opportunities. Our network of training programs and scholarship opportunities make it easy to get started down a path to a stable and successful career.

Why a Career in Floor Covering Installation?

Get Paid to Learn

After just a few weeks of training, we’ll match you with an installation team looking for new talent. While training on the job, you’ll be earning a steady paycheck.

Sustainable Income

With a current shortage of installers, there is more than enough work to go around for many, many years to come. Flooring will always be a need for new construction and current home remodels.

Pride in Your Work

Unlike plumbing or framing, flooring is something a homeowner looks at and enjoys every day. Quality flooring installers provide a floor that is not only structurally sound, but also visually appealing.

The flooring industry not only changed my life, it also allowed me to be able to change a few of my family members' lives. I learned how to fish so I'll never go hungry and now I teach others how to fish so they will never go hungry.
