NTCA November education: 14 Workshops, 5 Regional Events, and 1 Art Glass Panel training

The year may be winding down, but NTCA is going full steam ahead to bring education and training to sites across the country, with 14 three-hour workshops to six states, five full-day regional training events, and one two-day Art Glass Panel training in November.

Workshops: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas and New York

NTCA Trainers are coming to six states this month with 14 free, standards-based workshops that put you in touch with peers and industry experts as you learn new skills and information. Enjoy a catered meal from local eateries, and a chance to win valuable prizes.

The three-hour afternoon or evening events are open to tile installers and contractors, as well as sales personnel and the A&D community – anyone who wants to learn more about standards-based installation practices.

Prior to the start of the NTCA Workshop, attendees have
a chance to meet with and talk to local manufacturer reps.

Each NTCA Workshop is presented by NTCA Technical Trainers who have been installing tile themselves for many years or who still maintain their tile installation business. Workshops – made possible through the support of generous sponsors who believe in elevating the industry through education — feature one of the following topics:

  • Ins and Outs of Layout for Contractors
  • Tile Matters – Best Practices for the Pros
