About Certified Sales Advisors

If you are in the business of selling wood floors, you need every advantage you can get to attract customers and close the deal. NWFACP certification can give you that advantage.

NWFACPs have access to the use of the NWFACP logo on all promotional materials and are listed prominently in the Hardwood Floors Magazine Resource Book and the NWFA consumer site, www.woodfloors.org.

Certification Prerequisites, Testing & Maintenance

To be eligible for testing, you must complete an NWFA-approved sales training event. All NWFACPs are expected to abide by the Standard of Conduct.

The written test is taken online and covers topics including wood flooring properties, selling the right product for the job, and troubleshooting. The testing fee is $75 for NWFA members.

To maintain the certification, six continuing certification units (CCUs) are required every 2 years, as well as annual certification dues. CCUs are earned by attending NWFA-approved training, completing courses online through NWFAU, and attending NWFA Expo.

  • Minimum of 2 CCU's out of the 6 required must be earned through NWFAU, NWFA hands-on training, or NWFA Expo
