Apprentices Inducted Into the 2022 Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society
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 2022 class of AFSA’s Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society represent approximately the top 10 percent of the 229 four-level graduates for the year.

“Ten percent is an increase over last year’s four percent,” notes Leslie Clounts, AFSA director of education services. “It is very encouraging to see more apprentices not just completing but excelling in their sprinkler fitting studies. These AFSA contractor members are raising the bar for training excellence.”
Recognition plaques for the students are provided to the sponsoring employer so that the contractor company can present the plaque at an appropriate time and location. AFSA is pleased to honor the contractors who participate in this training curriculum and encourage their fitter trainees to study and do well on their tests by recognizing these companies in Sprinkler Age.
The Fire Sprinkler Fitter National Honor Society is one way AFSA acknowledges the hard work and commitment of both apprentices and employers enrolled in the association’s apprenticeship program.
