Course Details

This qualification reflects the role of flooring technicians who install floors or flooring materials in residential or commercial premises. Floors and flooring materials may be carpet, timber, vinyl, resilient, resin or concrete. Flooring technicians use a range of technical knowledge to perform skilled work involving known routines, methods and procedures. They use discretion and judgement to adapt and transfer their skills and knowledge to different job needs and take responsibility for their own work.

In some states and territories, this qualification is linked to licensing requirements for the installation of timber floors. In addition, licensing or regulatory requirements may apply to the use of some units in this qualification in some jurisdictions. Local regulations should be checked for details.

When you study with TAFE NSW, we want you to succeed. Entry requirements allow us to make sure that you have the right pre-existing knowledge and skills to achieve your chosen qualification. You will need to provide evidence that you meet the requirements listed in this section.

Before you can start an apprenticeship, you first need to find an employer in the industry you're interested in that will support you through your studies. You and your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP) and tell them you're interested in studying at TAFE NSW.

The ANP will help you and your employer to complete a Training Contract. Once you have a Training Contract, we will help you, your employer and the ANP to complete a Training Plan Proposal. Once you have both these documents, the ANP will lodge them with State Training Services, who will provide further advice about next steps.
