Bay View Flooring launches installation program

Home News Bay View Flooring launches installation program

Bay ViewTraverse City, Mich.—Northwest Education (North Ed) Services Career Tech, in conjunction with Bay View Flooring & Design Center, has launched a new floor covering installation track as part of its building trades apprentice program. 

For more than 10 years, Bay View flooring owner, Tim Hyland, has served as a guest speaker in local building trades classes, encouraging students to consider floor covering installation as a career. With the help of North Ed’s building trades instructor, Tom Senabaugh, and his staff, students can now participate in formal apprentice training in the field. 

“I always tell students what a great career flooring coverings installation is,” Hyland said. “You can work inside all year round and own your own business in less than five years. Crews in our industry are aging and there is a lot of growth potential for young workers.” 

According to North Ed, as part of the program, students earn school credits working in the field alongside installation crews. Upon completion of the program, graduates officially become employees of the Bay View Flooring team.
