Sprinkler Fitter Apprentice
HOW IT WORKS
The success of your Student and this Virtual Instruction Program relies heavily upon three key parties over an approximate ten-month period:
• Apprentice (Student)
• American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA)
To get the edge on the competition, you need well-trained employees who can work quickly and correctly. It takes training to get that leading edge. Enrolling your employees in the AFSA Apprenticeship Training Series for Sprinkler Fitters will reap the benefits of a qualified, professional installation crew. Well-trained employees will work more efficiently, increasing your company’s productivity and, in turn, its profits.
Using AFSA’s curriculum as the basis for your Apprenticeship Training Program, you can register your company’s program with the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (DOLETA) or State Apprenticeship Council (SAC), which will enable you to be more competitive on federal (and some state) projects. Keep in mind that this is a growing market for fire sprinkler contractors that helps diversify your business opportunities.
Your company can benefit from using the AFSA training program without registering it with a government agency. You can use this unique AFSA program solely as in-house training to upgrade team member skills. However, if you choose not to register for your program, you will not receive wage concessions on government contracts.
The AFSA Apprenticeship Training Program develops skills through formalized training that is cost-effective, skill-specific, goal-oriented, and can be designed to meet individual company training needs. AFSA members with successful programs have contributed proven methods and experience to the Training Made Easy guide to help you start your training program. In the back of the guide, you will find sample forms — an Apprentice Data Sheet and Testing Log, Unit Test Remarks, and an On-The-Job Learning Log – for your use. These forms may be duplicated for use in each apprentice’s file.
