The Flooring Contractors Association (FCICA) announced 26 newly named Certified Installation Managers (CIM) who took part in the 3 Days to CIM Charlotte training event hosted by Bonitz in Concord, North Carolina, February 21 to 23, 2023.

CIMs and program mentors, Don Styka, CIM, Tarkett, and Mike Kelly, CIM, Synergy Flooring, led the training. 

Bonitz's leadership team was very supportive and helpful with the coordination of the training. Bonitz's facilities, located outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, provided the space and equipment needed for the candidates to learn and concentrate. At the conclusion of the first day of training, Bonitz hosted an evening happy hour where the participants had an opportunity to get to know each other and network. 

FCICA plans to hold additional 3 Days to CIM training sessions in 2023. If you are interested in participating or hosting one of these events at your facility, please contact  FCICA Executive Director Catherine Church.
