Training courses

As market leaders in our field, we are proud of our commitment to providing ongoing training to flooring installers of all skill levels.

This is demonstrated by the significant investment we have recently made in a new, state-of-the-art training centre.

Combining high-tech conference facilities, meeting rooms, practical demonstration areas and a refreshment room, the new facility helps promote learning in a comfortable and relaxed environment.

Courses run throughout the year, covering the subject of subfloor preparation and adhesive selection. During the course delegates gain hands-on experience of using a range of F. Ball products in our purpose-designed demonstration area.

All courses are presented by experts from within the company’s technical department who have extensive knowledge of the flooring industry. This ensures that the content of our courses remains up-to-date and includes all the latest information about advances in adhesive and underlayment technology.

On a two day course, the first day focusses on underlayments and the second day on flooring adhesives. You can choose to attend either day or come along to both. We also run one day intensive courses which cover both areas.

We are also able to tailor courses for individual companies over one or two days. The minimum number for these courses is five delegates. Please contact the Marketing Department for further details on our usual number.
