NWSA Exam Schedule

Comtrain offers Practical Exam testing for NWSA Telecommunications Tower Technician 1 & 2 certifications. Call for available times and locations.

The NWSA certification does not replace a Tower Safety & Rescue or Rigging certification. NWSA certifications are portable, meaning the cert travels and stays with the person who earned the certificate for 5 years. Any company can honor and accept the NWSA certification.

Comtrain can arrange a Practical Examiner to administer the practical portion of the NWSA certification. Comtrain is not responsible for grading the exam and the results of the testing are only communicated to the person being tested by NWSA staff.  This is not a training class, this is strictly a testing process.
