KANSAS CITY, MO.—With the support of the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) and the CFI Associate Members’ sponsorship, flooring installers can attend installation training in all surfaces for only $125.
CFI must receive a date from a sponsoring party to conduct the training no later than Nov. 4. The event is to be conducted no later than Dec. 16.
With the support of manufacturers, installers and associates receive a $100 discount from the original cost of $485, applied to the WFCA membership of $225: The installer remits to CFI five weeks prior to the event only $125.
The scholarships can be used for 2-day, hands-on installation training in carpet, ceramic, resilient, wood and laminate workshops. This is an opportunity for an installer to attend one event and receive not only the CFI certification, but manufacturer certifications in carpet, laminate and wood, which is a substantial savings. For the laminate and wood courses, the opportunity exists to receive certification from the National Wood Flooring Association and the North American Laminate Flooring Association.
WFCA Scholarship funds can also be used for the CFI Carpet Installation for the Inspector Course, the Woven and Patterned Carpet Installation Course and all workshops conducted by CFI. WFCA scholarship funds pay for 100% of CFI training opportunities.
The CFI Certification is also available for industry associates as well as the opportunity to apply for the National Wood Flooring Association’s Sales Certification.
