    Hi , I’m looking to change my career and I’ve been thinking about getting into carper fitting and flooring for a while now. I may have an option of training with someone soon but not sure yet.
    Anyway I have a couple of weeks holiday at the end of the month and there is a position available on the FITA basic carpet course, it’s quite expensive but I’m considering booking up this week, just wondered if it would be worthwhile or not ?

    thanks

    It’s a start but it really is the basics of carpet fitting, personally I would recommend finding a good fitter you can shadow, book all the courses you can and do the apprenticeship with floorskills, 1 course really isn’t going to do much for you.

    Ideally I would like to work with someone if I can. I’m also in Scotland, so unsure what’s available here course wise.

    Glasgow college do a flooring course I think so you could enrol on that, it would be one or two years. Probably 1 day a week.
    That plus an apprenticeship would be the best route!

    I’ve opted for the floorskills basic carpet level 1 and 2 will give me something to do in my holidays . Also I’ve managed to arrange work a couple of days a week with my pal who’s a joiner doing kitchens and bathrooms.

    That’s good to know, wasn’t sure if I was wasting cash or not. Hopefully a good starting point for me.

    Excellent, feel better about my decision now. I’m desperate to get into the flooring industry.
