CCA affiliate companies Carpet One Floor & Home, Flooring America, Flooring Canada, International Design Guild, ProSource and CCA for Social Good will offer online training through Universities powered by BlueVolt. The BlueVolt Learning Management System provides these affiliates with self-driven, online courses regarding sales training skills, product and brand knowledge, installation, management and communication.
