Affiliating question

Does anyone know if you can apply for affiliation once you receive the email from HQ saying that you passed your level 1 cert test? Or do you have to wait the 4-6 weeks for them to mail you your actual cert? Or can you just apply right after you take the test? I'm in a bit of a rush to get affiliated because we have a space and everything available right now but we can't commit to it without the affiliation and we're in a small town so this kind of space is hard to come by.

Once you get the notification that you passed, are are able to apply. Good Luck!

Awesome, thank you so much! I emailed this question to the Affiliate Support two weeks ago but they still have not replied =(.

Re: Affiliating question

Just my $.02 from my recent experience with small town stuff Travis... Do your best to secure that spot, without having to pay today obviously, so that you have it when you're ready. Also, do your best to keep it under your hat, in town, until you're locked in.

Congrats and good luck!

Re: Affiliating question

Just know that the affiliation process may take 4-6 weeks to complete. You need to have a insurance company ready to go too. This is a requirement, if and when they approve your affiliation. Good luck.
