Certification is Tile-Industry Supported

Without the support of companies around the United States who believe intensely in the work of the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation to educate and offer installer certification for professionals working in the tile and stone industry, the Certified Tile Installer program would not be as robust and successful.

In fact, many tile industry companies - from suppliers, tile manufacturers, dealers, distributors and retailers as well as fellow Certified Tile Installers - generously offer their premises to host the hands-on portion of the CTI program.

We are grateful to them for being CTI Test Location Hosts.
