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 training course is designed to give independent carpet retailers a chance to enhance their sales skills, as well as providing basic product knowledge about carpets, carpet care and how to effectively plan and estimate. This is the sixth year that Cormar has held the event to help retailers train staff that are new to the carpet and flooring trade. 

 

The three-day ‘Selling Quality Carpets’ event, which took place 28 - 30 April, was run by independent industry expert and course tutor Ray Morgan from the Flooring Guild. 

 

Held at Cormar’s Brookhouse Mill site, the carpet training course was attended by staff from nine carpet shops from throughout Britain. One of the delegates on the course – Holly Wilson from Generation Flooring commented “I would definitely recommend this course to anyone in the carpet industry.”

 

David Cormack, marketing director of Cormar Carpets said: “Having run this course for a number of years now, it’s great to know that it is still in demand and that it really does make a difference to those retailers that attend.”

 

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 to sell quality carpets.
