Have a Rewarding Career in Flooring Technology

The flooring industry has been an unexplored option for many individuals seeking a trade qualification. Flooring technicians are in high-demand and the volume of work available has the potential to offer a long and rewarding career for those with the right attitude and skillset.

Flooring Technicians benefit further as they operate indoors, and are not effected by weather conditions, as are many other trades. This means more consistent hours of operation and income for those entering this industry. Flooring is often the final trade to work onsite. This is highly-rewarding as you are able to see the incredible impact that flooring design and finish can give to a project.

The ‘Become a Flooring Tech’ apprenticeship program represents a new approach to training Flooring Technology students. Holmesglen Institute of TAFE has designed this Apprenticeship initiative through a highly practical, mentor supported program, which is hosted at the Holmesglen, Chadstone campus.
