CFI to Roll Out New Carpet Certification Program

The International Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI) is launching a new certification program at The International Surface Event (TISE).

The Carpet Installation Technical Certification Program is specifically designed for retail sales professionals who would like to know more about the installation process through the eyes of an installer. The course provides a comprehensive overview of installation and helps to make the sales experience more efficient and rewarding for both customers and sales professionals.

“This course is an excellent opportunity for anyone who sells flooring to position themselves with their customer as a true professional who understands every aspect of the floor covering purchase,” says Dave Garden, CFI executive director of education. “What better way for the sales professional to offer a true competitive advantage?”

The fee for the course is $595 US; however, the TISE special rate is $325 US. Attendees must attend Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and can register via the TISE registration link.

The course includes a written test and minimal hands-on training.

Upon completion, program participants will receive a CFI technical certificate in residential carpet installation.

TISE is the largest floor covering, stone and tile industry event in North America. Comprised of three trade shows — Surfaces, StonExpo and TileExpo — the three-day event will take place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Las Vegas, Jan. 31-Feb. 2.
