Phase one will consist of a 100-question multiple-choice exam to be taken online. Once confirmed, AFSA will provide instructions to schedule the exam. A webcam is required for online testing. An online proctor will be assigned to your testing session. The test must be taken between May 29 – June 30, 2023.
September 6 – 9, 2023 – Phase 2 National Competition
Held at AFSA’s Annual Convention in Orlando, FL, the National Competition will consist of a three-hour exam and the requirement to cut, thread, and install a steel and CPVC piping system with sprinkler heads and perform a pressure test. Participants will be graded on accuracy, craftsmanship, and safety.
Seven finalists, apprentices representing member companies from across the country, will compete in Phase II to become the winner of this national competition. These contestants take a practical test in the Exhibit Hall during the AFSA Exhibition each year as they cut, thread, and install a steel & CPVC piping system with sprinkler heads and perform a pressure test. You will have the opportunity to see this competition from beginning to end. The seven finalists receive:
