NWFA University


NWFA University offers online and hands-on courses for NWFA members who are interested in expanding their wood flooring knowledge. One of the biggest components of the University is the opportunity to earn badges. A badge is a digital representation of a learned skill, and contains content that can be shared on social channels. Badges will serve as prerequisites to hands-on training, which will allow for more time to develop hands-on skills during in-person training. A combination of badges and hands-on training will lead to certifications.

The NWFA University pushes the industry limits and encourages professionals to grow their knowledge and skill set in order to set themselves apart from their competition. NWFA University is a resource to engage with other professionals, take part in meaningful education, and turn a job into a career.

The University offers more than 50 online training courses and 31 hands-on training opportunities. 


Engage with NWFAU to win a Lägler TRIO sander


Lägler has partnered with NWFA to promote NWFA University by donating a limited-edition carbon fiber TRIO sander, to be given away to one lucky user of NWFAU. For each earned badge an individual purchases, their name will be entered into the raffle for the carbon fiber TRIO sander. Only 10 of these special-edition machines were made to commemorate Lägler's 60th anniversary. 


NWFA University is what you need to further your career and stand out as a wood flooring professional. Contact the NWFA at 800.422.4556 for more information.
