Home News WFCA, CFI partner in training programs

WFCAAnaheim, Calif.—The World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) said it has launched the first nationwide flooring installation-training showcase underwritten by WFCA and overseen and taught by the Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI).

As part of the coordinated effort, the WFCA said it is sponsoring six regional training programs offering complete cfi_logoinstallation coursework on every category of flooring. The CFI team of over 80 instructors will provide the instruction.
 Students will participate in hands-on training in carpet (in accordance with the upcoming ANSI S600 Carpet Installation Standards), carpet installation inspection (including application, demos and problem solving), ceramic, resilient, laminate, and wood.

Training in the program will also include material presented by Tom Jennings, WFCA vice president of member services, who will instruct students on client service and customer relations.
Installers who successfully complete the coursework will receive entry-level CFI certification, as well as a CFI identification badge, a completion certificate, and a listing on the CFI website.

In order to qualify for this training and CFI certification, installers must have completed at least two years of active installation work. Standard program fees for the certification training is $495, however, as an incentive for WFCA members, association sponsorship of the program reduces the rate to $295 for member participants.
