‘Even the experienced learn at the academy’

JAMES Dewar of Ian Dewar Interiors is the first Master Installer to be presented his badge as the Academy for Excellence in Flooring resumed its training calendar after temporarily closing during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Established in 1997, Ian Dewar Interiors is a family-run firm based in Manchester that has gained a reputation for providing professional and high-quality flooring installations to homes and businesses. Having heard positive things about the academy and the business benefits of the Master Installer programme, the company decided to send James Dewar on the course.

‘Having been a flooring fitter for over 20 years I was a little sceptical as to what I would gain from the course,’ said James Dewar. ‘However, I did learn a great deal and I’m happy to say that there’s a clear difference between fitting laminate and fitting laminate the Quick-Step way.’

James attended the Academy for Excellence in Flooring’s intensive three-day Master Installer Laminate & Wood programme. The course sees a mix of classroom knowledge and practical training and assessments, with a pass or fail outcome, and qualified Master Installers are provided with a wide range of business enhancements on completion.

Lee Thompson, procurement and technical manager, Academy for Excellence in Flooring; ‘The three-day Master Installer course is a challenge for installers of all abilities, regardless of how many years they’ve been fitting wood and laminate floors.

‘As James was installing Impressive Patterns, which requires precise planning, the task was even more challenging. Whether it takes 10 minutes or an hour, correct planning will take the stress and heartache out of installing – James spent time wisely and nailed the installation. He’s now one of the most highly skilled installers in the industry and proud holder of a Master Installer badge.’

Ian Dewar Interiors will now benefit from the exclusive Master Installer enhancements, such as a manufacturer-backed lifetime workmanship warranty, a listing on the Quick-Step website and on-demand technical support.

Max Dewar, the youngest son of the family has recently joined the business and is already signed up on the Academy’s Foundation Installer course taking place this November as he begins his route to becoming a Master Installer.
