A Statement from Robert Varden, VP of the CFI Division

CFI has always been much more than just a training organization CFI has always been about family and that has never been more important than now. Over the past several weeks, we’ve been working behind the scenes to reach out to so many of you to see how you are doing or how we can help.

One thing we learned very quickly was that we can help support each other so much more as a group than going it alone.

No one knows more about what a professional flooring installer goes through on a daily basis better than another professional flooring installer.

The CFI Family is strong. We will come out of this together. #CFIFamily #CFIStrong
