The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) held a successful first training event of the year with the sold out Basic Installation school in San Jose, California, February 6-8.
The hands-on training event, led by NWFA Regional Instructor Jason Elquest, includes safety, an introduction to installation tools, exploring the many elements of job site preparation, and a variety of installation methods used when installing solid and engineered wood floors, including nail-down, glue-down, and floating.
The NWFA would like to give a special thanks to all students and instructors who attended this event and to Galleher Corporation for hosting.
