Training academy

Training academy

Update: A new clinic has been built in our Wilmington, Massachusetts office!  See some photos here.


The goal of the Altro training academy is to train and qualify a network of professional flooring and walling installers who wish to become part of a specialized group of recommended Altro installers and fitters. The academy is ideal for flooring installers, general contractors, and carpenters looking to learn how to install these specialized commercial products. Altro stands behind our installers and always recommends that customers use Altro trained installers.

Two training centers are located in the United States. They are located in Wilmington, Massachusetts and Santa Fe Springs, California. We also have a Canadian facility located in Mississauga, Ontario. Typical installation scenarios are integrated with best practices for a better, hands-on, learning experience.
