INSTALL - the International Standards and Training Alliance – is the floor covering industry’s working cooperative of mills, manufacturers, contractors and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) who together are raising the bar of floor covering installation standards. INSTALL is an exclusive program that creates flooring installers with the skills, experience and productive work ethic to excel on today’s job sites.
INSTALL is first in line to receive the newest installation methods and newest technology from the dozens of mills and manufacturers who partner to keep our training the best in the business. Technical experts from dozens of the biggest names in the flooring industry partner with veteran instructors from the United Brotherhood of Carpenters to take an active role in helping to update the INSTALL curriculum on a regular basis. These experts ensure that INSTALL’s curriculum addresses current labor needs in the floor covering industry.
It’s a Dedicated Alliance.
INSTALL apprentices spend hundreds of hours at state-of-the-art UBC training facilities throughout North America gaining hands-on experience by working with the full spectrum of floor covering materials. And training doesn’t stop there. INSTALL veterans have available to them skill-upgrade training to stay on top of the latest floor covering techniques, products and technology. The seal of approval is a certification process that rigorously tests the skills of every man or woman seeking to work under the INSTALL stripes.
An INSTALL certification translates into work done right the first time. No callbacks. No repairs.
No long punchlists.
Make sure your product selection gets the installation it needs so that you get the results you want. Ask to have INSTALL floor covering professionals for your next project.
