ASOLO, ITALY -- For 35 years, Progress Profiles, a leader in technical and decorative finishing profiles and fixing/laying systems including membranes for construction and interior design, has been actively engaged in the professional growth and updating of tilers and installers by offering them training courses and workshops in Italy and abroad.
Advanced for innovation and experimentation, the firm inaugurates the new Progress Profiles Academy training school: a large space where installers, architects, designers and industry professionals can follow diversified and free technical seminars and carry out practical tests together with the qualified staff, touching more than 15,000 products and the 15 systems developed by the company.
Opened in 2014 at the Asolo Headquarters, the Progress Training Center has been enlarged with an additional 300 square meters. It now offers a 200-square-meter show room, a 200-square-meter training area and an equipped, 250-square-meter workshop area. Unlike other training courses in the sector, the Progress Profiles Academy involves participants, in addition to an initial theoretical study of a specific system, to carry out a practical session supported by the help and professionalism of the Progress Profiles staff.
Furthermore, customized courses are organized at the request of retailers and companies where the participants have the opportunity to study the most interesting construction issues, the certification and UNI regulations, discovering the high-quality materials and the innovative technology of the numerous laying systems.
Moreover, the new training courses at the Asolo center allow installers to be qualified as “Progress Profiles Certified Installers.” Also, the costs of board and lodging are covered by the Venetian company, which also offers each participant a kit of accessories and clothing for work.
Even the lockdown period did not prevent Progress Profiles from organizing training events: to stay close to customers, architects, professionals and professionals such as surveyors and construction companies, more than 100 free webinars were activated and were attended by more than 3,000 people.
Essential to the professional growth of installers, engineers, technicians and retailers, the new training courses result from the experience and creativity of the entire Progress Profiles team, which has always invested in exploring new development spaces and creating stimulating synergies.
