The International Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI), in conjunction with the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), has scheduled training and certification events throughout the U.S. for the rest of 2014 and into 2015. Installers may attend these events for training and CFI Certification or if lacking the required two years of experience, they may attend the training only. Space is limited due to props and materials and early registration is suggested.
The training fee is $495. Dealers who are current members of WFCA may register any number of installers at a training discount of $200. If scholarship funds are available, they may also deduct another $147.50. Registrations must be received no later than 30 days prior to the event to use WFCA scholarships.
Dealers or distributors seeking to sponsor a training event are invited to contact the CFI national office to secure a date.
