Salem, N.J.-based Mannington Mills has announced its 2008 slate of classes for its Installation Training Center. The center is set to offer classes on resilient, laminate and hardwood products, with training focusing on some of the company’s latest lines.
“In the past two years, Mannington’s product categories have expanded to
include groutable luxury vinyl tile, glass-back resilient and LocnGo hardwood,
so this is the perfect time to reintroduce the training center to installers,”
said Terry Fitzpatrick, Mannington’s installation manager.
Training will focus on subfloor selection and preparation, as well as
floor repairs, according to Fitzpatrick. Specifically, resilient classes will include
specialized instruction on cutting, fitting, adhesive selection and
application, seam cutting and sealing and hands-on LVT installation
instruction. Additionally, hardwood/laminate classes will involve the general
properties of engineered hardwood and laminate flooring, as well as techniques for
layout, fitting, and fastening.
Hardwood/laminate classes are
slated for April 20-24, Sept. 21-25 and Nov. 9-13. Resilient classes will be
held May 18-22 and Oct. 19-23. Installers who complete the course will receive
a Mannington “Factory Trained” certificate and an exclusively designed “Factory
Trained” polo shirt. Class size is limited to 10 people per session, and is
open to installers affiliated with Mannington Specialty Retailers. For more
