Annual Flooring Guild Training Course 2013 at Cormar Carpets

Updated. 22.May.2013

Cormar hosts annual flooring training course for new members of the Carpet industry

During April this year, Cormar Carpets hosted their annual Flooring Guild Training Course, with independent industry expert and course tutor Ray Morgan.

The three-day ‘Selling Quality Carpets’ training event, run by the Flooring Guild, has been held every year for the last five years for carpet shops to help retailers train staff that are new to the carpet flooring trade. It is designed to provide basic product knowledge about carpets, such as selling techniques and how to plan and estimate effectively.

David Cormack, Marketing Director of Cormar Carpets said: “We have been running this course in conjunction with the Flooring Guild for the last five years now. And basically it is intended to help our Independent Retailer Customers with their staff training. This year it was really pleasing to see how many young people attended the course. Every year we get really good feedback from those carpet retailers that attend the course and I am sure that the training not only helps not them in terms of their sales, but also their overall customer service.”
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 UK carpet industry and a skills development programme, to motivate current employees. The programme also improves relationships between key customers and carpet manufacturers in the UK.
