List of Upholstery Training and Schools

If you know of or find additional schools and training facilities, please let me know and I will add them to this list.   Also, if you find email address or websites for any of the schools below, send them to me and I will update the listing below to include that information.

I might note that finding the upholstery classes and courses at some of the websites is not easy.  Most of them have  search capabilities.

I checked out the list and find most of these training courses are very short - not qualifying (in my opinion) as serious training in upholstery. A few exceptions: Robert Morgan Vocational Technical Institute - a solid course. Louisiana Technical School - a solid course. And the kick-butt program of them all: UpholsteryShop Oregon ;D.
The others are under three months and the majority are just 10-24 hour classes at community centers and fabric stores, etc. A few of the locations no longer have upholstery training listed in their program catalog. One that should be added to the list is Saskatchewan Education, that has an extensive upholstery program in Canada.

This list is training and workshop courses and classes.  These classes and/or courses help everyone from the "new" student all the way to the "Pro" looking for a specialized class in a different area to add to their business.  Not everyone needs or wants a complete full training center, but needs to learn additional tricks and tips to the trade.  Also, many folks can't afford the time and or money to take a full-time 1 or 2 year training and need to be able to do a little here and there.

I found that several of the listed schools don't list their upholstery classes in their standard catalog.  You will find them in thier Adult class listings, Trade Training sections and some misc. areas that are somewhat difficult to find, but I did find something at all the schools listed with a website.

One that should be added to the list is Saskatchewan Education, that has an extensive upholstery program in Canada.
So send me the information on this school so that I can add it to the list for the benefit of people interested in training in Canada.

If anyone would like to learn the trade and you live or would like to live in New York. You can come work at our shop and earn as you learn. We have always trained our own and many of our employees have gone on to open there own shops. One past employee is almost directly across the street from us.

We are the largest complete upholstery shop on Long Island. We do auto, marine, home and business upholstery, as well as awnings and boat canvas. We do many custom projects that involve fabrication and engineering not seen at "auto accessory" type shops. Come learn with us.

For information call 631-475-0397
