Request By Prospective Training Contractor For Information Regarding Subscription To CAFSA Program: 

$1250 (Non-Refundable) Application Fee Required*


Dear CAFSA Training Administrator:

I wish to receive information on the requirements associated with registering my company in the CAFSA State and Federally approved apprenticeship program for fire sprinkler fitters. I understand that in order to be approved as a training contractor, that there is a standard vetting process which may include certain background information on my company’s history such as prior compliance violations on California State or Federal Davis Bacon up to and including disbarments; misclassification of workers; underpayment of wages or workers compensation, meals and rest period violations and overtime compliance. I am also aware that the training agreements for both contractor and individual apprentices are four-way legal agreements between the CAFSA Unilateral Training Committee (UAC) subscribing contractor, either the State DAS and/or the Federal Office of Apprenticeship Training (OAT), and individual apprentice. In the case of the subscription agreement, it is a third party understanding between the public training agency (OAT or DAS), CAFSA UAC and the contractor.

To participate in the CAFSA apprenticeship program as a training contractor, you must have:

  • A current active Fire Sprinkler contractor’s license.
  • Evidence of Workers Compensation Insurance
  • Evidence of General Liability Coverage
  • Membership in good standing in the American Fire Sprinkler Association
  • Two-years continued operation as a licensed Fire Sprinkler contractor.
  • Complete the CAFSA Waiver and Release

*NEW:   This request must be accompanied by a  nonrefundable $1,250 application fee.  

Please Note: All information provided in the “pre-application” below is confidential. However, because the CAFSA Apprenticeship Program qualifies as an ERISA Trust (Employee Retirement Income & Security Act of 1974),  which funds the Training Program,  all information marked as ‘required’ needs to be supplied.
