Home News New NALFA Advanced Installer Certification class is May 8

Higher income and increased business exposure are two of the potential benefits of the new Advanced Laminate Installer Certification class offered by the North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA). The next one-day class will be presented May 8 in Dallas, TX.

The course, which is new to NALFA’s educational curriculum, will include a four-hour hands-on installation. The installation, which will serve as a test for certification, will include installing with obstacles, molding and stairs, testing for flatness and moisture, and plank replacement.

Presentations will address the definition of laminate flooring, a review of samples and locking mechanisms, preparing for installation, job site evaluation, installation of floating floors, water management, grade levels, trammel points, wood and concrete subfloor requirements, sound considerations, safety requirements, and a glueless plank demonstration.

The course will be taught by Anthony Palandro, an installer, inspector and consultant who has worked in the floorcovering industry since 1972. He has been a NALFA installation trainer since 2007 and a Pergo-endorsed installer trainer since 1998.

Benefits of NALFA certification include:

  • Increased business exposure by having your name and business listed as a Certified Laminate Flooring Installer on the NALFA website
  • Increased credibility and income potential as a Certified Laminate Flooring Installer
  • Profit from networking with some of the best flooring installers in the industry
  • Direct and privileged access to the technical support services of NALFA members
  • Regular updates of all technical innovations in the laminate flooring world

The remainder of the 2012 schedule is:

July 10 – City of Industry, CA
September 11 – Calhoun, GA
November 6 – Phoenix, AZ

The class fee is $350. To register or for more information, contact Teiya Eubanks at (423) 316-1566 or teubanks@kmtcreative.com.
