Why Train With Us?

Our training facility is situated within our 16500 ft² premises where we manufacture all our products in-house. Our dedicated training room is a fully equipped and functional workshop with a custom spray room at your disposal.

We provide all tools, products and samples; there is no need to bring your own item to work on.

We only enrol up to six delegates per course, this keeps the numbers low so ensures the level of tuition is of the highest standard.  

Our training courses are globally endorsed and approved and are considered the best in the industry; by the industry. 

Furniture Clinic uses state of the art technology to develop and test new products to be used in our cleaning and repair process. From the initial design stage, the products are sent to third-party test houses to make sure they conform to industry standards. The products are then used first by Furniture Clinic technicians throughout the UK before being launched. This rigorous process ensures all products are fully vetted, giving you complete peace of mind that our products are the best in the market.

With around 50 people working in our Head Office, we have dedicated trade account teams for the UK and our international customers, not to mention technical and training departments, research and development departments; we have the infrastructure to help your business grow.

It doesn’t stop there; Furniture Clinic can offer so much more than world class training and support. We supply extended warranty plans to furniture retailers and also cover their first-year servicing requirements. Our National Repair Service is a major UK provider to home insurance and warranty companies.

In addition to all of this, our website generates over 6000 enquiries a year for repairs – and these, too, are handled by our National Repair Service.

The National Repair Service is a network of our own branches, independent companies and individuals such as yourselves and we are always looking for reliable partners to carry-out work on our behalf – in all areas of the UK.

Approved partners who work with us, can benefit from further discounts off trade prices for products too. The opportunity for extra work and attractive trade prices for products is a compelling reason to become a Network Partner.

You may even consider the further benefits of becoming a fully-fledged Furniture Clinic Franchise which include many other additional advantages. So, why not consider looking into our franchise package

    Meet Our Trainer

    Craig, our Training Manager conducting a course at Jaguar HQ

    Our Technical and Training Manager at Furniture Clinic is Craig Stevenson. Craig is a fully qualified traditional upholsterer by trade. Craig has 21 year’s experience in the upholstery trade and over 18 year’s experience repairing and restoring leather, of which the last 10 years have been at Furniture Clinic.

    With the decline of the reupholstery trade in general, Craig turned his eye to leather repair. Gaining experience working for numerous companies, he soon realised which leather repair products worked well and how to achieve the best results

    After many year’s hands-on experience, Craig joined Furniture Clinic as an upholsterer, reupholstering client’s furniture. We soon realised that his knowledge and ‘on the job’ experience of leather repair and leather repair products was such that, together, we were able to improve our product range and techniques to produce what are today considered to be the best in the industry.

    Our training courses focus on a no-nonsense real-life experience approach to leather repair. Craig runs all our internal, national and international training courses; a role which has taken him all over the world.
