HomePress ReleaseCFI releases Calendar of Events

Kansas City, Mo.—The International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association (CFI) has released its Calendar of Events with events scheduled through September. CFI will hold installation training during open events and dealer-specific workshops and certification. These dealer-specific programs are designed for beginners and are one to two weeks long.

“Flooring installers are the mirror of the retail store and spend many hours in the customer’s home or business,” said Robert Varden, CFI executive director. “Increased training delivers results that provide more sales. Both dealers and flooring installers benefit from updated information and skills training. We prepare the applicants with The CFI Study Guide that contains the answers to the written tests. It is the goal of CFI to furnish as much information as possible to make the experience rewarding and enjoyable.”
