An International Labor-Management Committee for the Floor Covering Industry, which is supported by the UBC, steers the International Standards & Training Alliance (INSTALL), which is a marketing project for the UBC’s flooring program.
INSTALL has established itself within the floorcovering industry as possessing the most comprehensive and challenging training program in North America. The curriculum is based on the UBC’s International Training Fund, but what sets it apart from other flooring curricula is the input from INSTALL partners.
Constant counsel and advice is available from technical and education experts from major mills and manufacturers throughout North America, who are formal endorsers of the INSTALL program. These companies represent the largest names in the industry, including Armstrong, Mannington, Mohawk, Pergo, and Shaw.
The goal is to make sure that what is being taught reflects current labor needs in the floorcovering industry. The content of this four-year training program includes theory and practice of proper floor preparation, installation, and finishing procedures.
INSTALL trainers work according to a professional responsibility to offer top-quality instruction to INSTALL professionals and our partner contractors.
INSTALL offers career-long programs of skill enhancement upgrades, including manufacturer specialty certifications.
