1-2 Tools of the Trade

Is your tool kit good to go? Get your tools ready and your mind geared for safety first. 

As the famous saying goes: “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” In this course we get get acquainted with the tools of the trade. First up, we tackle the obvious: a basic overview of flooring types and products. From laminates to stone plastic composites to cork, we we explore the various options available and how their unique attributes can work for and against you. This includes construction and basic attributes.

We then look at tool kit options, from basic to advanced. Whatever your level or equipment access, the more refined your tool kit, the quicker and more refined your installation will be. We review the essential installer’s kit and clarify must-haves and nice-to-haves.

Lastly, we look after those fingers and toes (and those of your colleagues) by focusing on basic job-site health and safety. This should be non-negotiable and deeply ingrained in your daily on-site habits.

Focused knowledge quizzes and small assignments support reinforcing your knowledge and confirm a basic working understanding of the tools at your disposal.
