Washington, D.C.—INSTALL, the International Standards and Training Alliance, routinely updates its certification standards to ensure they’re in alignment with industry trends and capabilities. INSTALL recently updated its resilient, carpet and substrate preparation certification standards. Notable changes include the consideration of new products, removing redundancies in the scoring process and during hands-on training, as well as providing installers with a greater depth of current knowledge.
“It’s critical that INSTALL be on the cutting edge of installation progressions,” said David Gross, executive director of INSTALL. “Regular elevation of our standards ensures trainees are given challenging scenarios that lead to confidence during installations and a long-term value for customers.”
Certification standards leaders and trainers closely follow materials and techniques evolutions, enabling them to pass along new skills to installers. INSTALL provides rigorous standards, comprehensive training using a manufacturer-directed curriculum and the industry’s only free (extended) and non-proprietary third-party warranty.
