NWFA and Chattahoochee Tech Launch Pilot Class

(­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Marietta, Ga. – July 3, 2013) Chattahoochee Technical College and the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) have teamed up to provide a pilot program to train the next generation of wood flooring professionals. The program, which will begin with its first class Monday, July 8, will be held at the college’s Marietta Campus.

“This is a wonderful partnership that will fill a niche in the community,” said Richard Goble, Director for Economic Development. “Currently there are no classes or workshops like this offered in this regional area. Employers are sending new employees several states away for training that we hope to offer here.”

The pilot class is scheduled to have approximately 20 students for the three and a half day program. Professionals from Middle Tennessee Lumber, Basic Coatings, Bailey Hardwood Flooring, Jeff Pope Inc., Maddray Flooring LLC and Mohler’s Custom Wood Floors, will lead instruction on the basics of wood flooring. A networking reception for students and representatives from local businesses has been scheduled for the final day of class, allowing the students to show their new skills and talk with potential employers.

“Our goal in all programs and opportunities is to develop a well-trained and prepared workforce,” said Richard Goble, Director for Economic Development. “As with this class, we are preparing individuals with the skills they need for careers in the flooring industry.”

NWFA is a not-for-profit trade association representing all segments of the hardwood flooring industry, including manufacturers, distributors, retailers, installers, inspectors and consultants. NWFA provides training and resources for wood flooring professionals to enhance their businesses and skills.
