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).

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.

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.
