We are currently sponsors of the Flooring Industry Training Association (FITA). FITA work to support development and training with in the flooring industry. They run a variety of courses including the recently launched QA Card.

The FITA QA Card

Many professional trades are covered by industry standards to ensure that work is completed safely and to a high standard.

For gas fitters there is the Gas Safe register and for electricians there is the NICEIC.

The FITA QA Card will:

  • Provide ongoing Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
  • Provide an independent industry accreditation
  • Provide risk reassurance for the client
  • Keep floor fitters up to date with industry developments

The FITA QA Card has been broken down in to a series of modules to ensure that specific competencies can be easily measured and assessed. There is both a practical and a theory element to each module, to ensure thorough high quality assessment. One day assessments are held in the following subjects:

  • Subfloor preparation*
  • Vinyl Tile
  • Carpet Tile
  • Resilient sheet
  • Adhered Carpet
  • Floating Timber

On successfully completing the assessment a personalised QA FITA Card indicating which modules you have passed will be issued.
