‘An excellent new facility’ for the Academy of Excellence

THE new Academy for Excellence in Flooring is now open and has recently been accredited by the NICF. With a decade spent training the next generation of installers at its previous location, the academy has opened its doors on its new Knowsley, Liverpool facility.

Taking 10 years of refinement into a brand new centre has allowed the academy to create the perfect training environment for novices and experienced professional alike.

Now with six 12sq m bays, the academy has achieved the perfect balance between course attendees and trainers. A dedicated training room provides the right environment for theory-based learning and product tuition, with the breakout area providing a space to gather between sessions away from dedicated learning areas.

The academy also features a special cutting room that keeps dust and noise to a minimum, allowing for a cleaner and more supportive practical learning environment. And to ensure knowledge is shared equally among all, a dedicated demonstration zone gives ample room for everyone to get a good view.

After an evaluation visit to the Knowsley site, the academy’s new facilities and Master Installer course content has also been accredited by the National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers (NICF). This means those successfully completing the Master Installer wood and laminate programme at the academy, can also qualify for NICF Master Installer status. Currently, Master Installer wood and laminate is only Academy for Excellence course accredited by the NICF.

The Academy for Excellence in Flooring is now taking bookings on course dates throughout 2023, for more details and to book your place on one of its courses, contact 028 30258094.
