International Certified Floorcovering Installers (CFI) recently welcomed more than 100 flooring installers, dealers, manufacturers and inspectors for four days of training and certification at Ryman Hall in Dalton, Ga. Many of the classes, which covered all types of flooring as well as inspection, were standing-room only. Attendees traveled from across the U.S. and Canada to attend the meeting.
Jim Walker, CFI CEO, said the support and response to the training and certification was typical of Dalton. “We always get a good response when we come here,” he said. “There are lots of CFI members right here in Georgia, and it’s not just installers who are interested in installation. The retailers are interested in it. The manufacturers are interested in it. I would say we have just as many people from the carpet mills as we have installers.”
