The apprentice will learn to be on site safely. Initial focus will be on the proper use and care of tools starting with cutting plywood and eventually timber. Preparation and installation of sub-flooring will be taught as an early and crucial skill to master.
The apprentice will learn how to carefully select timbers and how to position and dry-lay floor boards and parquet in accordance with the design drawings. They will move on to basic installation. Then sanding methods will be taught, starting with room edges.
The apprentice will continue to develop layout, sanding and finishing skills integrating the methods unique to Weldon in order to achieve consistently high standards in the art of flooring installation. By this stage they may be working on more intricate designs that include marquetry and borders.
A high degree of craftsmanship will be sought by this stage. The apprentice should be working on most processes un-supervised and demonstrating clear understanding of the structure of the floor build up and conditions necessary for a successful install. The different surface treatments will be covered by now.
