New CITB Training Standard for Entrance Matting and Matwell Framing Installation

For more than 20 years, Forbo Flooring has been offering rigid matting training, based on CITB guidelines, at its Telford rigid entrance matting manufacturing site.

Recently we have worked with CITB (Construction Industry Training Board), CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme), CFA (Contract Flooring Association) and FITA (the CFA affiliated training association) to develop a new CITB approved training standard: ‘Entrance Matting and Matwell Framing Installation’.

This training standard is one of the first 50 being introduced for all flooring products and is in recognition of the specialist nature of this sector of the flooring industry.

CITB 357x268

The new CITB course is a four-day course which includes all types of entrance matting (rigid, single-sided, modular, textile) as well as matwell frames.

This course is designed to enable all installers involved with entrance matting fitting to gain a recognised installation skill with external certification and thereby allow them to apply for a CSCS Blue Skilled Worker Card (valid for 5 years). This skilled worker card will be specifically for the installation of entrance matting and matwell frames and is in addition to any general floor laying CSCS card that may be held by individuals.
