Join the IUPAT Floor Covering Apprenticeship Program!
Learn your new career in the IUPAT – and get paid for it!

IUPAT Floor Coverers are thoroughly trained to be the best and most qualified installation professionals for all commercial and industrial floor-covering projects.

Using a wide array of measuring, cutting and installation tools and industry techniques, our floor coverers are able to precisely install carpet, tile, vinyl, wood and other materials – which are decorative and usually also serve an important function in a building or room.

The materials floor coverers’ install can also sound proof, absorb shocks and create air-tight environments.
