Apprentice members are issued member registration numbers that begin with the letter A. Member registration numbers are recorded under the member profile in our national registry and listed on the certificate of membership as well as on the photo member identification card.
NOTE: We are currently accepting apprentice members, however we reserve the right to limit the number of apprentice members joining each calendar year to ensure that each apprentice member has the best opportunity to partner with a mentor. In the event that we discontinue additional apprentice memberships for the year, a notice will be posted on the home page and we will provide the option of registering for the waiting list for the following year.
