    Guys, looking for some advice here.

    Im hoping to get some lvt training courses under my belt in the coming months. Just wanted to know peoples view on which training provider to go with.

    One builder I work along side keeps asking me for a karndean certificate, something to do with a guarantee he keeps saying!
    I've done well to rubber ear it till this point.

    Any lvt work I do is mostly straight lay so i would really like to brush up on design work, borders, herringbone etc....

    I'm looking at doing level 2 and advanced, dont need level 1 as I've had a fair bit of exposure to straight lay over the last few years.

    Should I go karndean for this golden ticket or does that not really matter?? Will there be a cert provided from floorskills/fita?

    Thanks

    Stuart

    I would suggest any of them. Have you considered MN Floor training with Paddy McNicholas?

    Floorskills, FITA, M N Floor Training or Karndean.

    All do great courses and you would learn from them.

    I'd probably do the karndean l2 first, you'll get plenty of information from it, plus the piece of paper to keep customers happy, I've seen the work the guys at floorskills do,so personally I'd probably do their custom work course

    Just checked the MN course, surely that’s aimed at competent installers looking for new techniques or just an incite? Seems a lot to take in for the time scale?

    His level one looks like it covers pretty much the same as karndeans level one and two

    That would be 6 days with karndean though wouldn’t it?

    Maybe it's not because he has allowed too little time, but because karndean split it in two, so they can charge double, for the same information

    I’m not knocking it, but personally I would rather be taught less and be competent at it. Do you think 3 days is enough to learn all of that’s listed? Sub floor prep must take up at least a day of it surely?

    I think for someone in Stuart's position, it would be ok,as he would understand what he was being told, might be a bit much for a complete novice to take in though, it also depends on how his course is set out, I'm sure he must have tried it out first
