NAFCT adds IICRC Wood Floor Maintenance certification
NEENAH, WI — The National Academy of Floor Covering Training (NAFCT) recently added IICRC Certification Wood Floor Maintenance Technician (WFMT) to its list of classes, according to a press release.
IICRC-approved instructor Roy Reichow and the NAFCT will offer the class in locations throughout the US and Canada with some classes already scheduled for Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 19-20 and Toronto, Onterio, June 8-9. Additional classes will be listed at NAFCT.com and IICRC.org as they are available.
The WFMT course is a 14-hour introductory wood floor maintenance training seminar presented over two days with emphasis on an overview of wood floor care, which includes initial, routine, periodic and restorative processes.
Developed for those engaging in floor maintenance, the WFMT is ideal for current carpet cleaning technicians and others in the industry wishing to expand wood floor knowledge. The course teaches basic understanding of wood science, wood floor finish types and proper care and maintenance, and readies attendees for the WFMT certification. While currently wood flooring continuing education (CCU) courses are available, these do not offer IICRC certification like the WFMT.
A 40-year wood flooring industry veteran, author and speaker, Reichow is an NWFA Regional Trainer and holds NWFA certifications in Wood Floor Installation, Sanding and Finishing, Sales Counselor, Inspector and Commercial Inspector. He is an IICRC Certified Wood/Laminate Floor Inspector and a Wood Floor Maintenance Technician approved instructor. He is a contributing author to The Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & Inspection.
