Apprentices Achieve Academic Excellence

2020 Honor Society Announced for Sprinkler Fitter Graduates

The American Fire Sprinkler Association’s (AFSA) Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society was first established in 2012 to recognize those trainees, along with their sponsoring employers, who have completed all four levels of the AFSA Correspondence Course for Fire Sprinkler Fitters with a cumulative grade point average of 95 percent or above. Inductees into the 2020 class of AFSA’s Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society represent approximately the top 13 percent of the 147 four-level graduates for the year. The following companies are the proud employers of inductees into the 2020 Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society:
• Anchor Fire Protection, Perkiomenville, PA
• Best Defense Security & Fire, Waunakee, WI
• Cavalier Fire Protection, Dumfries, VA
• Dorn Fire Protection, Cincinnati, OH
• Dynamic Fire Protection Systems, Inc., Montrose, CO
• Johnson Controls, Inc., Plymouth, MN
• Maine Fire Protection Systems, Bangor, ME
• Professional Fire Systems, Inc., Southborough, MA
• RCI Systems, Tempe, AZ
• Service First Fire Sprinkler, Sioux Falls, SD
• Total Fire Protection, Berthoud, CO
• Tri-State Sprinkler Corporation, Londonderry, NH

Leslie Clounts, AFSA director of education services, notes: “This top 13 percent is a testament to the dedication of both employers and apprentices to their training. One can’t succeed without the support from the other. AFSA is proud to support both in any way we can.”

Recognition plaques for the individual students are provided to the sponsoring employer so that the contractor company can present the plaque to the fire sprinkler fitter graduate at an appropriate time and location. AFSA is also pleased to honor those contractors that participate in this training curriculum and encourage their fitter trainees to study and do well on their tests by recognizing their company in Sprinkler Age.

Build Enthusiasm Through Competition

AFSA’s National Apprentice Competition will celebrate its 28th year at AFSA40 Convention, Exhibition, and Apprentice Competition September 18-21 at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. Many contractor employers of fire sprinkler fitter trainees who competed in the annual event state that it builds enthusiasm among all employees and encourages trainees to study the AFSA Apprenticeship Training Program for Fire Sprinkler Fitters books more carefully and improve their performance in the program.
