NWFACP & Armstrong Partnership

NWFA Certified Professionals and Armstrong have partnered to offer a dual-certification program for installers.

Wood flooring installers can set themselves apart from their competition by earning their installer certification from NWFA Certified Professionals. As an Armstrong Certified Installer, you've already proven your technical mastery in installing wood flooring. All that remains to be certified is to pass the NWFACP online exams through NWFA University. NWFA Certified Professional Installers recognize the additional benefits their certification provides: 

  • Recognition of the NWFACP Certified Installer logo
  • Access to NWFA technicians and current technical publications
  • Inclusion in the NWFA web site customer search and NWFA Industry Guide
  • Recommendations from industry manufacturers
  • Increased credibility with customers, industry professionals, and as an expert witness
  • Unlimited access to NWFA University Installation online training courses
  • Access to promotional materials, such as NWFAU badges, to advertise certified status
  • $200 voucher for NWFA hands-on training, received each year after certification renewal

To earn and maintain your NWFACP Installer status, you must:

  • Be an NWFA member
  • Submit the $200 online testing fee
  • Pass the online exams through NWFA University
  • Participate in continuing education
  • Complete the annual maintenance requirements 

This partnership builds on the strengths of the individual programs, cultivating the best installers possible.

The adoption of this program also increases the visibility of the NWFA Certified Professional Installers’ certification. More than 38 manufacturers recommend using NWFA Certified Professionals when installing or using their wood flooring products. See the complete list here.
