ensuring the education
At Choices Flooring, it is important to ensure all our retailers are fully informed on all product, service and industry standards when dealing with consumers and commercial accounts alike.
Learning and development is vital to our success, and as such our training is delivered via a variety of mediums including online, classroom and instructional videos. In 2013,
Choices Flooring was awarded a government grant to provide our retailers the chance to achieve a Certificate III in Interior Decoration (Retail Services).
This course is unique in that it is designed by Choices Flooring for Choices Flooring retailers.
This is not a generic, off-the-shelf training course that would be of limited value in the real world.
Newfurn Training Academy
At Choices Flooring, we have also developed a scheme that supports the growth of flooring apprentices under the Newfurn Training Academy, launched in 2015.
The Newfurn Training Academy is the peak specialist training provider for the floor covering industry offering the leading Apprenticeship Program for new flooring installers, Trade Card accreditation for experienced flooring installers and Master Class professional development opportunities for flooring installers, workplace trainers, sales consultants and store owners.
The Academy is in a unique position of having direct support from the major Australian and International flooring manufacturers and distributors – our Alliance Partners.
With the assistance of our Alliance Partners, the Academy has access to the best specialist trainers in the flooring industry as well as the latest information on product developments, installation techniques and industry trends to ensure that all our professional development is always of the highest standard.
All accredited training is recognised through the issue of nationally recognised statements of attainment and qualifications. Our auspicing registered training organisation (RTO) is Workspace Training (RTO NO. 91247).
