International Standards & Training Alliance for Floor Coverers


INSTALL is the floor covering industry’s alliance of mills, manufacturers, industry consultants, contractors and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) who develop the best standards and training in North America. This ensures INSTALL mechanics receive the newest installation methods and technology from more than 100 mills and manufacturers.

To stay on the cutting edge, it is regularly reviewed and updated by technical and education experts. The major mills and manufacturers alliances support, endorse and specify the INSTALL standards and training because it is their standards and training.

INSTALL is also supported by the UBC International Training Fund which allots more than $200 million each year to training its members, including floorcovering professionals.

The INSTALL training and certifications were developed by the Carpenters International Training Fund with input from industry leaders and manufacturers. INSTALL demands precision skills, competence and discipline from those who possess the INSTALL certification.
