(Pittsburgh, PA) - The National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) convened its 28-member Board of Governors today in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to discuss key action items and activities related to the organization’s worker certification program development process. The NWSA Board of Governors consists of representatives from a broad cross-section of the industry and are tasked with developing policy and overseeing the activities of the various Committees that will serve under their jurisdiction.
The NWSA is a national non-profit assessment and certification organization that has been established to provide thorough, independent assessments of knowledge and skills and provide verifiable worker certification in order to enhance safety, reduce workplace risk, improve quality, encourage training, and recognize the skilled professionals who work on towers and other non-standard structures.
During the meeting in Pittsburgh, the Governors were provided an update on the Telecommunications Tower Technician I (TTTI) and Telecommunications Tower Technician II (TTTII) computer-based and field-based exam development progress. The NWSA’s TTTI and TTTII certification programs are slated to be unveiled to the wireless industry marketplace in the 4th quarter of 2016.
