As a floorcoverer, you will install high-quality floors in every possible finish.
Floor coverers make every step beautiful.
As a floor coverer, you’ll install incredible flooring in everything from laminates to intricate tiles. Your floor covering apprenticeship will train you to work off of blueprints and other plans; measure, handle and how to store materials; inspect surfaces for imperfections and correct any flaws; use specialized tools to cut and install flooring; and create and match patterns.
After completing your training, you’ll be an expert in working with wood, carpeting, tile, vinyl and virtually every other flooring material. This means you’ll be able to install everything from an expansive tiled office lobby to a patterned hardwood floor in a restaurant or home.

The next game-changer is to be able to reach the youth in our schools. They are the next generation of IUPAT members, and we need to ensure our organization is a career option they are familiar with as they graduate high school. They need to know we offer an accredited apprenticeship program and an associate’s degree while receiving a debt-free education and work in an industry that will provide for their family. Knowing this will make the IUPAT the preferred choice for their future.Brian Courtien
