What resin flooring professionals do

Resin flooring professionals work on new building projects or existing structures where they apply specialist resin flooring systems.  They require a sound understanding of how to prepare concrete surfaces, and knowledge of correct products and chemical compounds to use depending on the end-use of the surface.

Working as a resin flooring applicator, you'll need to be good at measuring weight and volume accurately.

Resin flooring qualifications

BCITO manages resin flooring apprenticeships. In your apprenticeship you will be working towards the National Certificate in Flooring (Resin Flooring Application) Level 4.

You’ll work under an experienced resin flooring professional who'll provide on-job coaching and support throughout your apprenticeship. You'll also receive the guidance of a BCITO training advisor.

There are no strict entry requirements, although it will help if you have good maths and english skills – you need to be able to understand instructions, and work out measurements and quantities.

Your apprenticeship is the start of a professional career

Resin flooring isn't just a job – it's a professional career. By doing an apprenticeship and getting qualified, you're setting yourself up for ongoing employment as a well-paid tradesperson. You’ll also open up opportunities to do further study in supervision or site management, go to university, or start a business and train your own apprentices.
