Sebring, Florida (PRWEB) February 22, 2013

Modern Fence Technologies is proud to announce that fence professionals from all over North America converged on Sebring, Florida last week to participate in NAFCA's Fence Installation School. Using materials donated by manufacturers and vendors throughout the U.S. and Canada, the school brought students and instructors together for a three day, intensely hands-on experience, during which even seasoned veterans learned a few new tricks, and relative rookies walked away with valuable new knowledge and techniques.

Students and instructors used donated materials to install fences of several different popular types at the Sebring Municipal Golf Course. Commercial estimates for the work ranged to $30,000. NAFCA arranged for the donation of materials and labor to make this happen. Modern Fence Technologies and NAFCA would like to thank the following people and the companies they represent for their commitment to improving the fence industry through education and their hard work at the school:

David and Linda Clark, of C&C Fence and Lady Fence for donating materials and generous support of meals.

Bill and Judy Iams of Log Cabin Fence for teaching, providing tools/equipment and support of meals, and comfort to the students.

“The City of Sebring and local businesses welcomed us with open arms and made our stay excellent”, said Mart Prost, director of the school. Mark Knudson, president of NAFCA pointed out that, “...the goal of NAFCA is to bring contractors and vendors together for their mutual benefit and the integrity of the industry. Events like this with vendors and contractors working together meet that goal.” There is already progress on the next NAFCA Fence Training School, and there were several vendors that expressed interest in helping that the school will rely on for phase two of the work.
