RIDGID® Supports National Fire Sprinkler Apprentice Competition

September 25, 2017

RIDGID® is a proud sponsor of the American Fire Sprinkler Association’s National Apprentice Competition. The competition is being held at the association’s annual convention, September 27, 2017, in Las Vegas.

The 24th annual competition brings together seven finalists from across the United States to compete for the title and prizes while also promoting the association’s fire sprinkler apprentice training program. RIDGID is donating 95 tools for the competition, including pipe threading machines, roll groovers and pipe wrenches.

"RIDGID has been a longtime supporter of the AFSA apprentice competition and we share the same passion as AFSA for supporting emerging professionals in the trades,” said Becky Brotherton, RIDGID Marketing Communications Manager. “A shortage of skilled workers in the trades is anticipated and apprentice programs and competitions like these are playing a key role in elevating the trades and training the next generation of skilled workers.”

RIDGID is also an exhibitor at the convention. To learn more about RIDGID tools purpose-built for the fire sprinkler industry, stop by the RIDGID booth
