Co-founded by the Contract Flooring Association (CFA) and the National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers (NICF) to provide specialist training for the floorcovering industry, FITA is an independent, not-for-profit organisation — by industry, for industry. We have two specialist training centres at Loughborough and Kirkcaldy with fully equipped practical and lecture areas.
FITA offer more than 20 flooring training courses at various levels. The range of courses means that there are basic courses to suit real beginners in the industry as well as upskilling courses aimed at professional floorlayers with a number of years’ experience of installing flooring.
FITA’s standard courses cover all the main flooring categories – from sub-floor preparation to installation of vinyl sheet and tile, linoleum, laminate, solid wood, sanding and finishing and, of course, all areas of carpet fitting, helping to meet the needs of the flooring industry with growing demand for this specialisation. FITA can also develop bespoke courses on request, tailoring the content to best support an installer’s needs.
FITA training also includes apprenticeship delivery in the East Midlands for prospective employers. Over three years apprentices will spend blocks of time at FITA alongside working with their employer to build the attributes a floorlayer needs to fit to the highest standard.
