    Depending on finances, I have 3 goals for training this year.

    Hook really talked up the Ardex training, so that's one.

    Nora is another.

    And finally I am told there may be a training at the new IVC plant.

    Anyone who hears about any flooring related training, please add it to the TFP Calendar or let a staff member know so they can.

    I'll second the Ardex training. It was well worth my time. I think we had like 50-60 journeyman at the school a coupla Saturdays ago. So it was well attended and they did a good job of covering all the issues and questions we had.

    Thanks Brad, We do need specifics though. The calendar doesn't have "April or May" so dates, locations, phone numbers, registration info is all important. It will help get our visitors and members to more training and encourage organizations to offer more training.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Thank you for the information, Brad. I appreciate it very much. I do believe those are already on our calendar:

    The Floor Pro Community - Mohawk U - Wood and Laminate Installation - California
    The Floor Pro Community - Mohawk U - Wood and Laminate Installation - New Jersey
    The Floor Pro Community - Mohawk U - Wood and Laminate Installation - Georgia

    If you learn of any others, please let us know. All flooring professionals and staff are encouraged to add events to our calendar or let us know in some other way so it can be added for you. Just take a look at the calendar to see if it hasn't already been posted. I know that many, many events happen around the country (and other countries our site serves) don't make it into the calendar.

    Thanks again Brad.
