1000th Certified Tile Installer Announced

April 10, 2014

The Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) has announced the certification of its 1,000th Certified Tile Installer. Since its inception in 2008, the Certified Tile Installer (CTI) Evaluation Program has certified installers across the country.

On March 17th during an official CTI test conducted at Daltile in Portland, Ore., Vladmir Blashchishchin was the CTEF’s 1000th Certified Tile Installer. CTEF launched the CTI program to provide a means for knowledgeable installers to verify their skills and subsequently promote themselves to potential clients and employers.

Certification enables professional installers to provide industry-recognized proof of their abilities, which ultimately helps them get more work. The program was developed in response to the lack of any credible mechanism helping consumers gauge the level of proficiency of prospective tile installers.

The testing includes both a multiple-choice exam and a hands-on test. Installers who successfully complete the CTI testing, receive nationwide recognition of their accomplishment by being listed on the CTEF website which provides the contact information of CTI's to everyone from the architect to the residential consumer.
