Jackson, Miss. -- The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) Training Department is responding to demand from its members to provide in-depth, day-long training in each of the its 12 regions. In 2018, the training department will be presenting 20 individual, day-long regional training programs. These programs will begin in February and will run through November of 2018. They will be in addition to the coast-to-coast, north-to-south traveling workshop programs NTCA offers.
Regional Training Programs will be based on accepted tile industry standards, methods, and best practices. This program will take attendees on an introductory journey into the tile industry standards found in ANSI A108 and the Tile Council of North America Handbook. Attendees will learn how to navigate and use the ANSI A108 standards and TCNA Handbook, then will use their new knowledge to address some of real-world challenges in practical hands-on installations, focusing on the process of substrate examination and preparation for installing large format tile.
