Haddonfield, N.J.—INSTALL, the International Standards and Training Alliance, has created the INSTALL Certified Installation Manager (CIM) Scholarship Program, in support of the Floor Covering Installation Contractors Association (FCICA). This educational opportunity was developed to support one installation manager’s continued training and professional development. The $1,000 scholarship will allow a floor covering professional to enroll in and successfully complete this training.
Criteria on which applicants will be judged include:
- Employer must be an INSTALL contractor
- Membership status and INSTALL certifications held by the applicant
- Reason for requesting the training
Applications can be submitted via installfloors.org/Scholarship-Program.xml. Deadline to submit is Oct. 31. Winners will be announced Nov. 6.
In addition, three flooring contractors have recently achieved the status of INSTALL Warranty Contractor (IWC). The newest IWCs are American Floor Covering in Avon, Ind.; Tri-State Flooring in Pittsburgh; and Weiffenbach Marble & Tile in Clayton, Ohio.
INSTALL has also named flooring accessory company Lonseal Flooring as an Alliance Partner in its mission to improve installation training and certification standards across the floor covering industry.
