INSTALL and Industry Leaders Sign Memorandum of Understanding, Announce Substrate Prep Certification Program

TEC has collaborated on a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with INSTALL, the International Standards and Training Alliance known for elevating industry excellence through training and certification. The MOU signifies TEC's endorsement of INSTALL’s new Substrate Prep Certification Program, a comprehensive training-based certification on substrate preparation.

The New Substrate Prep Certification Program by INSTALL provides the following advantages:

Certification is received after successfully completing TEC proprietary testing. TEC certified Install members become eligible for an extended TEC product warranty for TEC Multipurpose Primer, TEC Feather Edge Skim Coat, TEC Fast-Set Deep Patch and TEC Level Set® 300 Self-Leveling Underlayment.
  • Reduces flooring failure and callbacks, saving manufacturers, installers and end-users time and money
