    I keep getting asked to add a feedback thread by people who have attended a FloorSkills or any other training course or FREE open day.


    So here is the thread ! Lets here what you have to say.

    Positive and negative feedback is welcome in here. After all if you was not happy with a FloorSkills course we would like to know so we can improve for future course. FloorSkills wants everyone to be 100% happy with training / demonstrations that FloorSkills offer.

    Advanced LVT in jan too.
    Great course, Matt was trainer and we covered damp, screed, adhesives, click flooring and LVT design.
    Liked the way we did other things too like tool chat, also carpet and welding too tips too.
    Good debate on plywood too. Also if it's a 2-3 day course the tech pub comes into play.
    Things to improve. maybe a area to sit down with some literature to help remember what we have been doing.
    Looking forward to my next one.

New place will host a conference area with videos of how we done it etc to re-wind at your leasure etc if your unsure of something. Cant wait unyil its finished being built.

    Was at the 3 day LVT advanced course and agree with what everyone above has said it`s spot on!
    Only problem I`ve got it`s a bit of a nightmare coming down from Scotland for it, if you could find somewhere that you could use as a training center up north and manage to make it feasible i,e get enough people to attend, which I`m sure you could it would be a great advantage as there is nothing like what you have got north of the border.
    There is a college that does apprenticships in Glasgow can`t remember the name of it but they must have bays of some sort and areas for working in so maybee worth a look at Matt.
    Will try and find out the name of the college.

    LVT basic to advanced
    The course was excellent , I took notes of most things apart from the important part the fitting !!
    So some literature would be good as its quite a lot to take in and remember

    Daz, the new hotel has a Tech Bar with sky sports. It also has a curry house built into one place!

    I did things backwards. I found best accommodation (well maybe not best, shall we say 'well priced' accommodation) , curry , bar and then looked for a unit local to it.

It's deffo sorted me out on stuff that I should have learnt a long time ago and can't wait to get back to work next week. Best course Ive ever done mate.

    Do not discuss this on an open forum!

    The reason Matt is making them on USB's is if they fall into the wrong hands they will self destruct!
