“Nothing teaches better than video,” says Robert Varden, executive director of CFI and Taylor Adhesives spokesman. We caught up with Robert at the International Certified Flooring Installer facility in Forney, Texas, as he and his team are getting ready to shoot a series on installation videos using Taylor product—the exclusive adhesive of CFI.
CFI is a non-profit organization founded in 1993 with the purpose of improving residential and commercial floor covering installation through training and certification. It is estimated that 20% of the floor covering installers in the U.S. and Canada have completed a CFI course.
“We are dedicated to providing our classes with the best instruction and training possible,” commented Robert. “The health of our industry depends on quality, professional installation of products and that comes from a knowledgeable and skilled workforce.”
The video series, in production now, will cover several flooring types and the best practices on achieving professional results. After completion and final editing, the video series will be accessible by anyone visiting CFI’s YouTube channel.
