The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) will conduct two one-day training sessions in January in Las Vegas, in conjunction with The International Surface Event (TISE).

The NWFA Certified Professionals (NWFACP) sales advisor certification workshop will take place Jan. 20. The “Environmental Effects on Wood” workshop will be held on Jan. 23, and will offer continuing certification units toward annual certification maintenance requirements. The Environmental Effects on Wood workshop is a comprehensive course that covers water/wood relationships, temperature and humidity, HVAC and humidification/dehumidification systems and how environmental conditions affect wood flooring.  
 
The workshop will be taught by Randy Lenz and Janis Rozenbergs, of April Aire, and Roy Reichow, owner of National Wood Floor Consultants.
 
“Because continuing education is so critical for professionals looking to gain an edge in their careers and businesses, we aim to make receiving that education as convenient and valuable as possible,” said Brett Miller, NWFA's vice president of education and certification. “Offering these two workshops in Las Vegas in tandem with Surfaces is a fantastic opportunity to help the wood flooring professionals who are attending maximize their investment there.”
 
The NWFACP certified sales advisor training covers product knowledge, subfloors, installation methods, customer expectations and preventing, recognizing and solving claims.
 
To achieve NWFACP sales advisor certification, an online written test must successfully be completed within 30 days of attending the sales advisor workshop.
