NAFCT TO HOST RESILIENT FLOORING INSPECTOR CERTIFICATIONSarah Fike
This 12-Week course will be live streamed starting March 14th.
NAFCT is proud to announce their first Inspectors course which will be live streamed over a 12-week period starting March 14, 2023. The Resilient Flooring Inspector Certification course will include report writing courses, subfloor for inspectors courses and resilient flooring. Participants in this program, upon completion will receive Report Writing Certificate of Completion, Subfloor for Inspectors Certificate of Completion, and Resilient Flooring Inspection Certification.
Paul Pleshek, Executive Director of NAFCT comments, “This isn’t just any inspectors course; it is a completely different way to offer inspector certification. The NAFCT inspector program is going to resemble online college courses where there is a lecture one day a week and there are assignments due prior to the next course.”
