NFIC Training Clinics and Schools for Installation, Inspections & Sales


Installation Training Courses on…

Woven & Tufted Wools
The course consists of 3 days of training for skilled installers. Our instructors have over 35 years of experience each.

Day 1 of the course is a review of the study guide followed by a written test.

Day 2 is “hands on training” consisting of pattern matching, double stick installation, preparation for Wilton seams, and much, much more.

Day 3, testing for “hands on training” along with demonstrations of the Kool Glide Iron, and the Seamer Down Now.

These tools, we feel will enhance any carpet installation.

Inspector Courses

We do a yearly Inspectors course which includes a tour of a Woven mill to give the Inspector a first hand look at the product while being manufactured.

The Inspectors course consists of a 3 day course of all aspects of the industry, manufacturing, installation, and appearance retention, for Woven and Tufted Wools.
