SPONSORING A SEMINAR
--------------------

Half or more of the classes I teach are sponsored and I'm asked every week how
class sponsorship works. In a word, it's easy! Seminar sponsorship is a painless
way to bring training to your location. Regardless of whether you're an
association, municipality, private company, or school, AFAA can provide one or
more 1- and 2-day seminars at an affordable flat rate. Currently the class
line-up includes:

1-day Fire Alarm System Fundamentals
2-day Intermediate Fire Alarm (NICET I & II)
2-day Advanced Fire Alarm (NICET III & IV)
1-day Fire Alarm Inspection Testing & Maintenance
1-day Fire Alarm Plan Review
2-day IBC Fire Alarm Requirements 

Once you've decided which of these seminars you're interested in, call or send
me an email message with the dates that you have in mind. Your cost is
reasonable, only $1,200 per day plus travel and expenses for up to 40 attendees!

Class sponsorship is a popular method for non-profit associations to earn
revenue that may be used to accomplish their mission and to subsidize the
education of the AHJ community. Nothing will endear you to the fire department
faster than a free seat or six at a seminar!
