Home Categories Installation CTEF to host August online auction

The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF), has organized an online auction to take place in August to raise additional funds in support of its mission. The CTEF online auction takes place from August 18 at noon until August 22 at 4 p.m. EDT and includes more than 50 items relevant to tile installation professionals.

“This online auction is a wonderful fundraising event because it brings together the users and producers of tools and supplies for installing tile,” said Scott Carothers, CTEF director of certification and training. “The proceeds from this online auction will allow us to expand the training and certification programs such as the Certified Tile Installer (CTI) program and the Advanced Certifications for Tile Installers (ACT) program.”

Donated by tile and stone industry supporters, suppliers and manufacturers, these items include among others:

  • Tools such as mixers, saws, trowels, floats, sponges and knee pads
  • Materials such as tile, GPTP, backer board, underlayment, mortar, and grout
  • Flooring products
  • NTCA Football/Golf and Fishing Experience packages

Those interested in participating in the online auction can do so via their computer, text or by contacting Cathey McAlister at CTEF. Bidding is free. The first step is to register at and participants do not need to wait until the auction starts to do so.

“This online auction gives tile installers and contractors an opportunity to stock up on the tile installation products and materials they know, love and depend on,” said Brad Denny, CTEF executive director. “In the process, they can directly benefit CTEF so this foundation can continue to provide ceramic tile education and installer certification.”
