The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) said it will be all over the map in July delivering a robust training schedule to 11 states. Tile contractors in Utah, Colorado, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, New York, Tennessee, Kansas, Arizona, Connecticut, Nebraska and Florida will have access to 16 free standards-based workshops and on July 28 – the actual date of NTCA’s 75th anniversary – the association has a special treat in store for participants. 

These workshops are free afternoon or evening events, open to tile installers and contractors, as well as sales personnel and the architecture and design community – anyone who wants to learn more about standards-based installation practices. They feature networking time, a catered meal, a chance to win useful and valuable prizes, and of course, priceless training from industry pros. 

Each NTCA workshop is presented by NTCA Technical Trainers who have been installing tile themselves for many years or who still maintain their tile installation business. 

For the commemorative workshops, NTCA Training Director Mark Heinlein said, "Attendees at our special July 28th 75th anniversary workshops will have the opportunity to receive special NTCA items such as t-shirts, hats, NTCA Reference Manuals, NTCA store vouchers and more. Come help us celebrate!"
