What is the Apprentice Roster ?
The Apprentice Roster is a list of members in each geographic area i.e. city, county or state that are new to the Fugitive Recovery profession and seek to gain experience by working with a mentor.
When a member that is an experienced Fugitive Recovery Agent contacts us looking for an Apprentice we utilize the Apprentice Roster to provide them with contact information for an Apprentice in their area.
Why would an experienced Fugitive Recovery Agent want to take on an Apprentice ?
It comes down to money, when 2 or more experienced Fugitive Recovery Agents work a case together they normally split the commission evenly. However, when an experienced Fugitive Recovery Agent works with an Apprentice it's understood that part of their payment is in the form of "Education" . Therefore, the Apprentice receives a smaller share of the Commission and the experienced Fugitive Recovery Agent earns more.
How do I get listed on the Apprentice Roster for my area ?
After you join NAFRA you will be issued a member registration# and listed in the National Registry. After this happens you can email us with your member registration# and request that we add you to the Apprentice Roster.
