Introduction to beds launched by the national bed federation

The National Bed Federation (NBF) has announced the launch of a new beds course ‘Introduction to Beds’ to provide a background for people joining the industry.

Hosted within its online Sleep Council Sales Academy (SCSA) programme, the new course works as a standalone introduction to the industry.

The NBF said it will officially unveil the course at the fast approaching NBF Show, taking place from 20-21 September in Telford, and will provide key information and learnings about the UK bed market facts and figures, relevant legislation, product guidance and a glossary of industry terminology, knowledge on major brands and the NBF Code of Practice.

Simon Williams, NBF marketing manager, said: “All those completing The Introduction to Beds course will receive a certificate of achievement. The beauty of this course is it can be accessed anywhere online using either your PC, tablet or mobile. Delegates signing up can download the Sleep Hub app to track learning progress and complete the course remotely.

“We’ve worked hard to develop an interesting learning programme and Introduction to Beds includes videos and various downloads to help achieve this.”

The module is being offered free to retailers for an introductory period from 20 September until the end of the year, and is also free to all NBF member companies. For more information and to register, visit
