The National Flooring Contractors Apprenticeship Program (NFCAP) is an industryrecognized apprenticeship program registered with the Department of Labor. We aim to set a standard in the flooring industry and train a new generation of flooring tradesmen to become professionally certified. Our organization’s network is connected to 3 national vocational schools (Job Corps, YouthBuild, and Big Picture Learning) with over 200 campuses nationwide, making our program accessible to students anywhere in the nation. To ensure the best training in the industry, we have partnered with CertifiedFlooring Installers (CFI) and National Academy Floor Covering Training (NAFCT) to provide a certified 6-week training program. With this training course, we aim to give prestigious employers the opportunity to hire tradesmen with the highest standards in industry training. Therefore, NFCAP will recruit students, provide them with certified training, and placed them with the best flooring companies.
Custom Training Curriculum
We understand that each company has a distinct corporate culture, so we will personally tailor each company’s training curriculum in accordance with their unique standards. Through our comprehensive training guidelines, our program will discipline apprentices to professionally represent your company while working for your customers. We assign managers to work closely with each company in order to ensure that apprentices are receiving the proper training both online and in the classroom. Our program’s curriculum will focus on the technicality of flooring material, skill sets for different installation methods, and customer service management. When apprentices complete this 3 to 4 year program, they will receive an official certificate from the Department of Labor. Our primary goal is to train these apprentices to develop a professional corporate attitude and give your clients the best experiences possible.

NFCAP will execute the strategic plan. After one year of implementing the apprenticeship program, we will present a case study analyzing the program’s outcomes.
NFCAP will oversee and report the progress of apprentices to the Department of Labor. We will also ensure that apprentices are completing both online and offline tasks, as well as monitor whether employers are providing high quality on-the-job training set by the implementation plan.
