What is the California Designated Representative training affidavit?

  • The California Designated Representative license application forms are lengthy and involved.  A lot of information needs to be provided, and a lot of documents must be submitted.
  • One document that needs to be submitted is the "Training Affidavit."
  • The training affidavit is one of many forms that makes up the complete license application package.  In order to get a training affidavit, the license applicant needs to go through a training program.  The training program is commonly sold as a training course, training class, or training seminar.  Upon successful completion of a training course, the course administrator issues proof of completion, in the form of a training affidavit.
