Advanced Flooring Tech. Completes First Training Session

Rockwell, TX, July 10, 2023-Advanced Flooring Technologies (AFT) has completed its first two-week session of a new 3-Phase Installer Course developed by Robert Varden for new installers. The approach moves an inexperienced installation team member from “helper” status to a contributing, certified carpet and LVP installer quickly.

The AFT 3-Phase Installer Course is open to new untrained hires employed with dealers or contractors. The three training phases build on each other, from a basic introduction in Phase 1 to more intensity and depth in carpet and LVP installation in Phases 2 and 3. 

AFT’s 3 Phase track begins with a two-week Intro to Floor Covering Phase, including basics in carpet and LVP installation and some hardwood flooring basics. Then students do a minimum of four weeks of on-the-job training. Phase 2 is two weeks of Basic Carpet and LVP installation training, followed by four weeks minimum in the field. Phase 3 is the final two weeks of more intense training in Carpet and LVP, followed by testing and certification.

The new course has just launched in Wichita, Kansas and will soon be offered at the AFT facility in Rockwall, Texas.
