Advanced Flooring Technology Opens Fort Worth Training Facility

Advanced Flooring Technology has announced the opening of a new training facility for floor covering installers in Fort Worth, Texas. The 10,000 square foot space is designed and outfitted to conduct classroom and hands-on training and certification for a variety of hard and soft surface flooring installations. Fort Worth is the second location for AFT, adding to its current Wichita school. A third school is being completed in Rockwall, Texas, near Dallas.

The grand opening of AFT-Fort Worth is June 7-8, featuring free prizes and Texas BBQ. Roberts Tools will also be on hand with tools and demonstrations.

“This training facility will be made available for any floor covering training entity,” said Robert Varden, founder and owner of AFT. “Our goal is to help advance the flooring installation profession, no matter who is teaching.”

AFT was founded in 1988 by Varden. In 2023, AFT transitioned from being an installation contractor to a training company. In the past 12 months, AFT has trained over 400 installers across the U.S. and Canada. Class bookings for AFT training classes extend into 2025.

The new AFT Fort Worth facility is located at 685 Jon B. Sias Memorial Parkway, Edgecliff Village, Texas 76134. For more information, visit
