Bostik Supporting National Flooring Contractors Apprenticeship Program
Wauwatosa, WI, April 27, 2023-The National Flooring Contractors Apprenticeship Program (NFCAP) launched officially in 2020, offers an apprenticeship agenda registered with the Department of Labor.
Its goal is to set standards within the flooring industry by training a new generation of flooring tradesmen, who ultimately become professionally certified. Connected to three national vocational schools (Job Corps, YouthBuild and Big Picture Learning), NFCAP now has access to over 200 campuses nationwide. This strong outreach offers students anywhere within the country to receive high-level training. To date, students receive a certified eight-week
pre-apprenticeship training program to identify committed prospects that want to join the flooring apprenticeship. Partnering has been established with Certified Flooring Installers (CFI), the National Association of Floor Covering Technicians (NAFCT), the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), and the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) to assist in placing the apprentices and continue training. Via this training course, employers have the opportunity to hire tradesmen with the highest standards of training.
