UofCTS launches Tile Installer Thin-set Certification online course

Home News UofCTS launches Tile Installer Thin-set Certification online course

SAN DIEGO—The University of Ceramic Tile and Stone (UofCTS) is launching its newest online course, Tile Installer Thin-set Certification (TITC) course, available in English and Spanish. The TITC certification course was developed for tile installers who work with ceramic tile, porcelain tile, glass tile, stone tile, or any other adhered tile products.  The convenient and affordable online course teaches installers the industry installation standards and methods for the thin-set application, and documents that they understand those standards and methods.

By earning TITC Certification tile installers will have an important credential giving them an advantage over other installers bidding on the same jobs.  Certification not only enables installers to earn more profit, but it helps them avoid costly problems and delays thanks to their knowledge of industry standards and methods for thin-setting tile.

TITC Certification is not just a benefit for installers.  Architects, general contractors, owners and manufacturers can specify and require that only “TITC certified” tile installers work on their projects in order to limit the risk of problems and delays.  When there is a problem, it doesn’t matter whose fault it is, everyone ends up paying in at least their loss of time if not also in costing them money or their reputation.

The TITC Certification course offers a comprehensive review of the tile thin-set adhesive installation standards and methods following ANSI A108, the TCNA Handbook, and common installation material manufacturer’s  requirements.   TITC certification is only good for one year and installers must retake the updated course annually as a refresher and to stay current with the new industry standards.

The course is interactive, professionally narrated, and is filled with many photos, video clips and animations to reinforce the learning and to make it enjoyable for the student.

The TITC course tuition is $150 per person.  The course is available for purchase 24/7, and once registered the students have 14 days to complete the course at their own rate.  Upon completing the course with a passing grade the students can print a certificate of completion and they are provided a course reference guide to download. The UofCTS also offers volume discounts.

In addition, UofCTS offers online sales and technical training courses on ceramic tile and on natural stone that have been created with salespeople, installers and design professionals in mind.  Visit UofCTS.org for details.
