The National Wood Flooring Association has released its 2020 Hands-On Training Calendar. These events are held at various NWFA regional training centers across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Each course is led by an NWFA Regional Instructor. These instructors are highly skilled and trained individuals who have a great passion for the wood flooring industry and are eager to share their knowledge with others.
