NWFA Releases 2023 Training Calendar Information

The National Wood Flooring Association has released its 2023 Training Calendar. These events are held at various NWFA regional training centers across the United States and Canada. Each course is led by an NWFA Regional Instructor. These instructors are highly skilled and trained individuals who have a great passion for the wood flooring industry and are eager to share their knowledge, through NWFA standards, with others.

“Participating in NWFA hands-on training is one of the best personal and professional investments you can make to enhance your career. Not only do you learn from some of the best in the industry, but attending also opens the door to networking opportunities with other wood flooring professionals,” says Brett Miller, NWFA vice president of technical standards, training, and certification. “In 2023, we’re visiting markets we’ve not been in for some time as well as some new locations.  It’s a perfect opportunity to learn new skills and work towards becoming certified, no matter what stage you are at in your career.”
