The National Wood Flooring Association reports that 2,800 courses have completed online at NWFA University in the first eight weeks of operation.
“While we were confident that our members would respond positively to the courses we took more than a year to develop before launching, we never imagined that the University would be successful this quickly,” trade group president and CEO Michael Martin said in a statement. “Nearly 3,000 courses completed is an unbelievable number to achieve in just eight weeks.”
NWFA University currently offers about 50 individual courses. A series of courses leads to the earning of badges. These badges lead to certifications, with defined career paths, for installation, sand and finish, sales, and inspection.
Courses for architects, designers, and consumers will be added in the future.
