CCA, WFCA & CFI Partner to Bring Qualified Installers to the Industry

Manchester, NH, February 23, 2016—CCA Global Partners has partnered with the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), after its recent purchase of the International Certified Flooring Installers Association (CFI), to help address the shortage of qualified flooring installers. Through this new partnership, members of CCA’s floorcovering divisions will be provided with incentives to bring new hires to the industry, and the CFI will have them qualified and up-to-speed quickly.

In this new partnership, members of Carpet One Floor & Home, Flooring America/Flooring Canada and International Design Guild will benefit from tuition credits and discounts from both CCA and WFCA.

CCA will provide its members a discount toward the cost of tuition when the installer completes one of CFI’s installation training classes for carpet and hard surface classes.

The CFI schools introduce installers to many types of flooring and the tools of the trade with an emphasis on efficiency and craftsmanship. Courses cover hands-on installation techniques, customer service training and OSHA and EPA standards training. Graduates would leave a five-week residential carpet class with the skill sets and confidence to go into the field and have the ability to install an average three bedroom home. They also receive CFI Certification. To learn more about CFI, visit
