The Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA), in cooperation with INSTALL, have named Michael Pinkstaff the winner of the inaugural INSTALL Certified Installation Manager (CIM) Program Scholarship.

Pinkstaff, an installation manager from American Floors & Interiors, will receive a fully paid tuition in the CIM Program compliments of INSTALL.

“We applaud FCICA for their efforts to provide effective and legitimate training and certifications for the floorcovering industry,” said Tom Lutz of INSTALL Michigan. “We especially support their Certified Installation Manager program. We feel that this program dovetails with our training and certifications for installers and contractors.”

According to Lutz, INSTALL has pledged to provide an INSTALL supported CIM Scholarship each year. Applications are accepted throughout the year with the next scholarship awarded in November 2016.
