Leading British carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets has just completed its eighth annual Flooring Guild carpet training course to give independent carpet retailers a chance to boost their sales skills.


Due to popular demand the three-day 'Selling Quality Carpets' course was run twice over a two week period, to allow more retailers to attend - 35 carpet retailers, in total, from throughout the UK.
Held at Cormar’s Brookhouse Mill site, the carpet training courses were run by independent industry expert and course tutor Ray Morgan from the Flooring Guild. Designed to help retailers train staff new to the carpet and flooring trade, the course provides basic product knowledge about carpets, selling techniques and how to plan and estimate effectively.
David Cormack, marketing director of Cormar Carpets said: “This year, due to demand, we ran two three-day courses which worked extremely well. We are delighted that we are able to provide this training to the industry and every year we get really good feedback from the carpet retailers that attend. I am sure that the training not only helps them in terms of their sales, but also their overall customer experience.”
The Flooring Guild is a ‘not for profit’ organisation, which was founded in 1999 to raise standards in the flooring industry through training and educational programmes. The organisation aims to provide a formal induction programme to assist people coming into the industry and a skills development programme, to motivate current employees.
