NAFCA’s Fence Training School utilizes a proven method to provide the greatest benefit to its students: real-world installation of various fence projects led by industry professionals with a combined 450+ years of experience.

How do we improve on this?  By adding a Capstone Project.

For the 2024 FTS, in addition to our various fence disciplines taught during school, we will be installing 650′ of ornamental aluminum for the Florida Medal of Honor Memorial in Sebring, FL.  This project will enable our students to implement their training into a fairly typical installation.  There will be utilities to work around, gates to appropriately install, and weather to contend with.  While difficult, this project will provide our students the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals and certifiable experts, resulting in a truly remarkable experience and increased benefit when returning home.
