The National Tile Contractors Association will be sending several of its experts to California to lead free workshops on April 25 and 26. These one-stop, one-evening training events are designed to give contractors and tile professionals the head's up on the industry's latest materials and installation methods, according to the NTCA.

Justin Woelfel Jr., NTCA's director of training and education, will conduct the courses, accompanied by industry experts, at two Morena Tile locations.

The April 25 course is planned for 6 to 9 p.m. at 75-220 Merle Drive, in Palm Desert. The April 26 class is slated for 6 to p.m. at 33081 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano.
