CTEF Focuses on CTI Evaluator Training and Finished Tile Work Education Sessions During TISE 2020
By: Simple Marketing Now LLC
On Wednesday, January 29, Scott Carothers, CTEF Director of Certification and Training will conduct a seminar entitled "Finished Tile Work - Do It Wrong or Do It Right: Lippage, Grout Joints, and Patterns". That afternoon, he will have a hands-on demonstration on the show floor to reinforce the same topic.
In its booth space, CTEF will construct 3 Certified Tile Installer (CTI) hands-on testing modules in progressive stages of completion for display. The CTI program is the only third-party assessment of installer skill and knowledge which is recognized by the tile industry.
More importantly, the organization will offer shadowing opportunities to new CTI Industry Evaluators in order to move them to the next level of expertise of test set-up, the evaluation process and scoring. Industry Evaluators offer CTEF the means to expand the CTI program to more locations around the country in response to more tile installation contractors wanting to become CTIs.
The CTI designation identifies the professional installer who has reached a level of proficiency to independently and consistently produce a sound tile installation that displays good workmanship. Certification is the validation of the skills and knowledge of the men and women who presently are installing tile successfully in the United States. It offers property owners, both residential and commercial, peace-of-mind that their tile installer has the right skills and knowledge to complete a successful tile installation.
The CTEF which sponsors the CTI program is supported by all segments of the ceramic tile industry. CTEF is headquartered in Pendleton, South Carolina, near Clemson University and the offices of the Tile Council of North America (TCNA).
