A little history...
Eleven installers and one retailer from Kansas City, Sioux Falls, Kalispell and Detroit met in Sioux Falls, SD on September 18, 1993 with the purpose to organize an association dedicated to promoting the skills of the flooring installer.
On November 15, 1993 the International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association, Inc. (CFI) was incorporated in the state of Missouri as a non-profit trade association.
CFI’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of installers and their families through sharing flooring installation training in a “hands-on” atmosphere, providing business skills and increasing pride and professionalism.
