This course is the practical component of ‘Solid Timber Floors’ the ATFA industry standard. You will be trained in the evaluation of the job site and the use of equipment and techniques, essential for high-quality outcomes. The success of a timber floor relates to knowing your product, knowing your installation environment, and then laying and coating accordingly.
This course offers practical implementation of the standard, to not only meet your obligations but also to provide a high standard of workmanship to satisfy customer expectations.
The program is aimed at two audiences:
- The first being the flooring contractor. Maybe you are an installer and want to upgrade your skills in sanding and coating, or vice versa. As a contractor, when you evaluate your jobs, do you wonder why others achieve a better result, and to be honest we do see many floors with fairly ordinary work. Maybe you are relatively new to the industry and have a lot of questions relating to the technique. Well, this is your opportunity to reach the next level.
- The second relates to those that simply need to know more about the practical side of floor installation, sanding and coating in order to do your job better. You may be in a supervisory role with an insurance builder, working in a sales role and liaising with both the client and the flooring contractor, needing to know what can and can’t be achieved or you may be in a role where your products (coatings, adhesives, flooring) are part of the completed floor and you want a more in-depth understanding. You will benefit from the demonstrations as well as having the opportunity to use much of the equipment.
So, this program covers not only what should be done but also how to do it, hands-on, and covers timber flooring installation, sanding and finishing, repairing and recoating.
Timing: 12.30pm – 8.30pm x two days
