UofCTS releases updated ITS Verification course

Home News UofCTS releases updated ITS Verification course

San Diego, Calif.—The University of Ceramic Tile and Stone (UofCTS) has released an updated version of the Tile Installer Thin-set Standards (ITS) Verification course. Both the USA and Canadian versions of this course were updated, as well as the Spanish version.

The updated course offers a comprehensive review of the current industry installation standards, methods and practices for ceramic tile, porcelain tiles, glass tile, concrete tiles and natural stone tiles. It has two new lessons—Special Tile Applications and Grouting—and has expanded sections in various lessons such as Preparing Substrates and Tile Installation Methods.

The UofCTS ITS Verification course takes about five hours to complete and is available to students 24/7 for two weeks. Students can work on the course as they please throughout the access period. Tile installers who complete and pass the course can use the acronym ITS alongside their name designating them as ITS Verified. This verification is good for two years, at which time the installer needs to take the updated ITS Verification course to continue being ITS Verified.

UofCTS Online courses are available through key organizations in the tile and stone industry. Courses can be purchased through CTDA, Fuse Alliance, Local 18 Tile Union, NTCA, TTMAC, WWCA for member rebates, or at the UofCTS website.
