NWFA Welcomes New Certified Professionals

The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has announced the newest additions to the NWFA Certified Professionals program. The NWFA’s Certified Professional program was developed to recognize and promote the competence of wood flooring professionals throughout the industry.

To achieve each certification, specific online and hands-on testing must be completed. Available certifications include Certified Sales Advisor (CSA), Certified Installer (CI), Certified Sand & Finisher (CSF), and Certified Wood Flooring Inspector (CWFI). Included here is a list of individuals who became Certified Professionals between May 2, 2023, and September 1, 2023.

Becoming an NWFA Certified Professional enhances professional credibility, offers customers peace of mind, and generates new business by appearing on the NWFA’s “Find a Professional” search feature for consumers.
