The ALOA AFL Designation Online course was designed to minimize the out-of-office time for students while still providing the quality training experience you’ve come to expect from ALOA.

Students who wish to receive the ALOA AFL Designation must complete a background check and take an online course of study, which is followed by a 1 day, hands-on practical class in their region. The new online option will allow students to take the online course at their own pace and spend only 1 day out of the office at a nearby location, thus minimizing travel expenses! The exam is also given online.

After enrollment, students will be mailed their course kit which will contain the tools, pinning kit, locks and other hardware needed to follow and complete the online study. During the course, students will also have access to online forums for Q&A from ALOA staff members and trainers. This ensures all students have the support needed to successfully complete the course.
