FCICA, the Flooring Contractors Association, in cooperation with ARDEX Americas, announced the recipient of the Bruce Newbrough Memorial Certified Installation Manager Program (CIM) Scholarship, Eduardo Martinez, a project manager with Martinez Carpet Installations.

“I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t near my dad working with floors,” Martinez said. “I have tried my best to follow in his footsteps, but always having my share of failures, I continue to move forward with those lessons. I’m a third-generation installer and very passionate about what I do. This isn’t a job to me, it’s a lifelong mission to promote trades and trade education as an honest and great choice for any young man or woman trying to decide their future. I am absolutely grateful for the opportunity to become a CIM.”

This scholarship, created in remembrance of Bruce Newbrough from ARDEX Americas, provides for the entire program costs associated with the Certified Installation Manager (CIM) Program including application, content, and assessment fees. Scholarship applications are accepted throughout the year.
