Flooring installation training is on track to break records in 2012, according to Jim Walker, CEO of the International Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI).

Thirty-seven cities are scheduled to host CFI installation programs before May 30 alone, he said, and more are being scheduled. In addition, manufacturers such as Armstrong, Congoleum, IVC, Johnsonite, Mannington, Mohawk, Personna and Traxx are co-sponsoring the training, “making the events affordable for the installation community.”

It’s not just the makers of flooring products, Walker added, as tool suppliers, distributors, retailers and associations are getting behind the effort to train and raise the overall professionalism of installers.
