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 work indoors, and are not affected by weather conditions, as are many other trades. This means, that flooring businesses or employers can offer more consistent hours of work and feel confident to sign onto employing individuals as apprentices, especially for those entering this industry. Flooring is often the final trade to work on a commercial or residential building site. This is highly-rewarding as you can see the incredible impact that flooring design and finish can give to a building project.

The ‘Become a Flooring Tech’ apprenticeship program represents a new approach to training Flooring Technology apprentices. The great thing about a flooring apprenticeship is that it is competency based. This means it is different from the old school approach which you may have experienced at high school.

Holmesglen Institute of TAFE has designed this Apprenticeship program focusing on hands on. Support is provided onsite with an experienced Flooring Industry Advisor. Some of the training will be facilitated at Holmesglen Institute, Chadstone campus, or your training could be a combination of on-site and on campus.
