West Bloomfield, Mich. -- The Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA), in cooperation with ARDEX Americas and nora systems, Inc., announced that the next quarterly Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship is available for the Certified Installation Manager Program.

Deadline to submit scholarship applications is Dec. 31, and the winner will be announced in January. The scholarship, valued at $1,225, will enable a flooring professional to enroll in the Certified Installation Manager (CIM) Program.

The Bruce Newbrough Memorial Scholarship was established to provide educational opportunities to floor covering installation and project managers who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to and excellence in proper substrate preparation and installation of floor covering. Bruce Newbrough, as ARDEX director of technical services and later applications development, tirelessly utilized every opportunity to further his vision and passion for industry education and training on proper substrate preparation, all for the purpose of achieving successful installations. This is the foundation on which FCICA was built and the reason that Bruce was a dedicated ambassador of this organization.

The CIM program provides industry-specific training modules led by experts that speak from years of floor covering experience packaged with assessments to confirm the vast knowledge obtained. The program is completely online, allowing users to work at their own pace, on their own time.
