After the debut of its new curriculum in 2011, the North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) will kick off its second year of inspector certification classes with a one-day course held Friday, Jan. 27, in conjunction with Surfaces 2012 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The class is the first course dedicated exclusively to laminate flooring and promoted by the largest North American laminate flooring manufacturers.
The comprehensive curriculum for the NALFA inspector certification class includes NALFA history, a “Laminate 101” course, installation requirements, inspection tools and standards, product defect review, and inspection reporting and process. The class fee is $350.
Pre-qualifying conditions include either a minimum of three years’ experience as an inspector, being a NALFA-certified installer with a current certification, or being certified by another nationally recognized inspection organization.
Certification offers increased credibility as a laminate flooring inspector and helps participants to become a preferred choice for the best laminate flooring producers in North America as well as their distributors and retailers. Certification also provides the business exposure of being listed on the NALFA website as a certified inspector and the benefit of networking with the best inspectors in the industry. Finally, certified inspectors receive privileged access to the technical support services of NALFA members and are constantly updated about technical innovations in the laminate flooring field.
Additional dates for NALFA inspector certification classes will be announced during Surfaces 2012, scheduled for January 24-26 in Las Vegas.
Space is filling fast, so to register or for more information, visit the NALFA website at www.nalfa.com or contact Teiya Eubanks at (423) 316-1566 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
