Certified Flooring Installers (CFI) will offer a five-week residential carpet course for beginners in Dallas, beginning Monday, Aug. 15.

The course will be a comprehensive overview of basic residential carpet installation. Students will learn subfloor prep, installation of tack strip, transitions, cushion, seaming and stretching techniques as well as customer service skills and business management. No previous installation experience is required.

The course will be taught by industry-leading trainers though hands-on training, lecture and job-site training. CFI has partnered with local retailers and area workrooms so students can be in the field working in homes while being supervised by the organization's instructors.

According to organizers, graduates will finish the course with the skillsets and confidence to go into the field and have the ability to be the lead installer on an average three bedroom home. Students completing the course will be awarded a CFI Residential I Certification.
