Having fielded numerous calls about how to sign up for tower training for upcoming TTT 1 and TTT 2 Practical Exams, Kathy Gill, CEO of Tower Safety & Rescue in Phoenix, AZ last week released an instructional video on the subject. Gill said many turf vendors are requiring the training no later than the end of February and companies are rushing to get in compliance.
