One of the Academy’s main strengths is its close connection with industry manufacturers and distributors through the Choices Flooring alliance partners.
This allows us to draw on their expertise and detailed knowledge to provide the latest information on installation techniques and new products on the market ‘straight from the horse’s mouth’.
Alliance partners are involved in training programs at the following levels:
- providing technical advice, datasheets and installation guides to our development team as they write the training resources and assessment tools
- providing training facilities and expert trainers for specific sessions during the three residential schools
- assisting in the delivery of periodic ‘master class’ workshops
- providing sponsorship for various state-based awards for apprentices, such as:
- ‘High Achiever’ award
- ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award
- ‘Best Installation of the Year’ award.
