NTCA launches Thick-Bed regional training
Jackson, Miss.—The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) is launching a brand new training module in its regional training program: Thick Bed Installations. According to the NTCA, this program will debut on August 26, 2022 at America’s Floor Source in Columbus, Ohio.
The NTCA said the regional thickbed installation training course is open to NTCA members and other professional tile contractors and installers, with a class size of up to 20. Led by highly qualified and experienced NTCA trainers and supported by a team of tile industry experts and partners, will instruction is provided in both classroom and practical settings to address the installation challenges of real tile systems. Participants will learn how to use and apply ANSI A108 installation standards and TCNA manual methods.
The primary learning objective of this free lesson is to familiarize yourself with the flexibility of dry-pack mortar beds to solve a wide variety of installation challenges and to meet the tile industry’s standard substrate requirements, according to the NTCA. The focus will be on thick bed installations for floors and shower trays, using a variety of drain types and membranes, with additional instructions for wall installations.
