CCDI STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Meet Mike Atkinson, 2018 CCDI graduate and member of our North Technical & CCDI Alumni Network. Mike has been working hard as an apprentice floor layer for Flooring Systems Inc. for the past two years. He is an active alum who gives back to the program by participating in Saturday Academy’s to teach high school students about what it takes to be successful in the floor laying industry.

CCDI recently received an email from Mr. Ron Komlos who shared an update from Mike’s supervisor who has been very impressed with his work ethic and wanted to reward Mike’s hard work with tool upgrades. We are always thrilled to hear positive news and would like to commend Mike for proudly representing our program. Keep up the excellent work!

We would like to thank the entire team at Flooring Systems Inc. for being a big supporter of the CCDI program. Since 2015, Flooring Systems has hired 1-2 of our graduates each year and not only retained our students, but have mentored and supported their growth. On top of that, they are always willing to donate materials to the high schools we work with, volunteer their time for hands-on demonstrations and guest speak about the opportunities in our industry.

Thank you for going above and beyond! We are so thankful for your partnership.
