Kelly Bakke


Floor Covering Instructor

In 2007 I was presented with an opportunity to become an instructor at the same apprenticeship program that I had completed in 1993. Hoping to pass along the knowledge that I had accumulated over my career plus, further my own education, I accepted the job as an instructor. I have been a floor covering Instructor at The Twin Cities Floor Coverers Training Center since 2008. I have always done my best to pass on the knowledge left to me by my co workers many of which are no longer working in the trade. I also work very hard to keep up with the many new installation techniques being utilized today. The UBC’s ITC and INSTALL strive to keep all instructors abreast of new materials and techniques so that, INSTALL instructors may pass along the information to the UBC floor coverers. A few examples of manufacturers working with INSTALL include; Ardex, Uzin, Schonox, Ger Floor, Nora, Armstrong, Mohawk, not to mention the NWFA who supplies wood floor installation training at the ITC.
