On January 28, 2014, the Arizona Board of Technical Registration voted to either refund or credit the $65 application fees charged to alarm agents who applied for certification and paid an application fee in addition to a certification fee to the Board from May 1, 2013 through November 19, 2013. The Board will not be refunding any fees to firms, even if the firms paid for agents’ initial certifications.
In order to ascertain correct and current mailing addresses and to determine whether those agents who applied for certification and paid an application fee between May 1, 2013 and November 19, 2013 would prefer a “credit” toward their next certification period, the Board will be sending out a notice letter requesting agent responses. Qualifying agents must reply to the Board’s letter as quickly as possible to confirm a current address. Refund checks will be mailed or credits will be applied as quickly as possible following address confirmation.
If you have questions regarding this process, please contact Jennifer Mitchell at 602-364-4930.
The Board has voted to issue either a $65 refund or a $65 credit toward a certification renewal to alarm agents who had an application fee paid prior to November 19, 2013. The choice for refund or credit is at the discretion of the alarm agent. If a firm would like to submit one list for all alarm agents who would like a credit, the following must be included: The name and certification number for each alarm agent. The alarm agent must sign and date the letter requesting the credit either directly next to or under the alarm agent’s name. Only original signatures will be accepted. The request with signature must be received by February 28, 2014. If the alarm agent has not signed the request for a credit, it will be presumed that that agent has opted for a refund.
At its April 2013 meeting the Board set the following fees:
Alarm Firm application $20
Alarm firm renewal fee $40 (2 years)
Controlling Person $65 (1 year verification)
Alarm Agent $65 application fee
Alarm Agent (A-K) $65 (1 year certification)
Alarm Agent (L-Z) $130 (2 year certification)
NOTE: BTR HAS BEEN GRANTED PERMISSION TO ISSUE AN INITIAL ONE YEAR AGENT CERTIFICATION OR A TWO YEAR INITIAL AGENT CERTIFICATION TO AGENTS OF APPLYING FIRMS IN ORDER TO EVEN OUT THE AGENCY REVENUE FLOW. BTR HAS DETERMINED THAT AGENTS WHOSE LAST NAME BEGINS WITH A-K WILL BE ISSUED AN INITIAL ONE YEAR CERTIFICATION. AGENTS WHOSE LAST NAME BEGINS WITH L-Z WILL BE ISSUED INITIAL TWO YEAR CERTIFICATION. ALL RENEWALS WILL BE FOR TWO YEARS.
Please ensure you use the most current form or your application may be returned.
