You can become a Certified Tile Installer!
The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA), the largest tile contractors association in the world, in alliance with the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) collectively have announced 2014 Goals for the Certified Tile Installer Evaluation.
Since its inception in 2008, the Certified Tile Installer (CTI) Evaluation has certified over 1000 tile installers, a true milestone for the industry. This year’s goal will be to extend and expand the existing roster to over 1500 certified tile installers by the end of 2017. Click Here for a current CTI Directory.
The Certified Tile Installer Evaluation is a comprehensive testing of the skills and knowledge of experienced tile installers which includes a multiple-choice exam and hands-on test. Both are based on current industry standards and best practices for producing sound installations that exhibit good workmanship. The tests, therefore, require that both the observable and non-observable characteristics of a finished installation are executed properly. (Note: this is a test of ability and is not considered a training event.) Installers who pass the written and hands-on exams receive a certificate, an identification card and most importantly, marketing materials developed by CTEF.
