Robert Varden, founder of Advanced Flooring Technology

Rockwall, Texas—The Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) has approved Advanced Flooring Technology (AFT) as a training provider and its new six week course to receive scholarship funds, according to Robert Varden, AFT founder.

“We are truly grateful to Jim and FCEF for their vote of confidence in what we are doing,” Varden said. “Already we are seeing results and looking at expanding this opportunity to train-up the next generation of installers.”

Varden founded AFT in 1988. It provides knowledge and skills training in specific areas that new or seasoned installers need most: custom seaming, carpet pattern correction, residential resilient installation, commercial resilient installation, LVP installation and a six-week classroom and on-the-job carpet and LVT course.

The AFT six-week course is open to new, untrained hires employed with dealers or contractors. Three training phases combine classroom and on-the-job experience that build upon each other—from a basic introduction in Phase 1 to more intensity and depth in carpet and LVP installation in Phases 2 and 3.

“We’re very happy to add Advanced Flooring Technology to our list of training providers authorized to receive our scholarships,” said Jim Aaron, executive director of FCEF. “Robert’s installation knowledge and skills are known throughout the industry. We’re confident the students participating in AFT’s classes will receive excellent instruction as they embark on a new flooring installation career.”
