NATIONAL AND LOCAL JOB OPPORTUNITIES: Certified Floorcovering Installers Association Announces Sizable Earning Potential in Field with Mass Shortages in Trained Personnel!

First of Its Kind Proprietary Installation Course Provides
Students Sizeable Income Returns

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Imagine being a part of an ever-expanding industry that is forecast to
be worth over $331.78 billion dollars worldwide by 2020 according to
experts at MarketWatch – part of the Wall Street Digital Network. With
the massive economic rebound and upsurge in construction projects in
emerging economies worldwide there is no better time to be on the
installation side of the flooring business. According to experts at
Certified Floorcovering Installers Association (CFI), the nation’s
largest installation training organization, there are more installation
jobs than there are professionals in the market today. Earning potential
for a trained installation professional is well north of $50,000.

The flooring industry has been growing by millions of dollars every
year. In contrast, the shortage of skilled installers to handle all of
the jobs available across the country, even overseas, has hit a crisis
stage. “There has never been a better time to be a flooring installer,”
said Robert Varden, Vice President, CFI Division. “There are tens of
thousands of retailers and consumers looking to hire trained
professionals to install flooring. Motivated individuals can become
certified to install in just 5-weeks! Imagine increasing your earning
potential to $50,000+ in a little over one month!”

Installation courses are now available at the new state-of-the-art CFI
Training School located in Forney, TX, just outside of Dallas. To
address the tremendous shortage of trained professionals, a
one-of-a-kind accelerated proprietary carpet installation class will
commence in February 2016 at the new facility. Seats for the course are
filling quickly – registration is available by visiting http://www.cfiinstallers.org/school.html.

The five week CFI Residential Carpet class, renown for its efficiency to
take new students and turn them into accredited professionals at an
accelerated pace, has never been available before on a continual basis.
Interested parties do not need any previous installation experience to
attend the class. The course offers a comprehensive line-up of all the
technical aspects required of basic residential carpet installation.

Though only open for a few months, the new CFI Training School is
drawing students from across the globe. The one-of-a-kind campus
provides long and short-term training programs throughout the year in
every category of flooring for students at all levels. Now with a
permanent address, the school offers courses that were historically only
available at sporadic times in random locations due to the massive size
of the equipment and tools necessary to carry out the training. In
addition to the programs offered through the school, CFI will also
continue with their highly acclaimed regional trainings and
certifications throughout the country.

“Together with our partner CFI, we are determined to resolve the
installation shortage issue in our industry,” said Scott Humphrey, Chief
Executive Officer, World Floor Covering Association – parent company to
CFI. “All of the pieces are in place to execute our plan; now we just
have to tap into the segment of the market that is seeking steady, high
paying employment — and who is not in the market for that? For those
that are interested, our doors are open and we’re ready to help you make
your employment and financial dreams come true!”
