NWSA Hosts Practical Examiner Accreditation Program Workshop in Colorado
The National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) recently hosted a Practical Examiner Accreditation Program (PEAP) Workshop in Golden, Colorado. The workshop was conducted on March 29-31, and hosted by Centerline Solutions at their indoor training facility.
NWSA, headquartered in Fairfax, VA, is a national non-profit assessment and certification organization 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 communication structures.
The NWSA’s first “open-enrollment” PEAP workshop in Golden, Colorado was an opportunity for individuals to become authorized to administer NWSA practical exams. The three-day intensive workshop focused on important components of certification assessment including: test administration rules and regulations, how to establish practical test sites, managing candidates at practical test sites and completing the documents associated with testing.
Additionally, Centerline Solutions hosted practical exam testing immediately before the workshop to help facilitate the candidates completing their certification. Practical testing was conducted by NWSA-accredited Practical Examiners Clint Cook from Centerline Solutions, Justin Miller from EasTex Towers, LLC and Sam Rogers from the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO).
The following individuals received official NWSA Practical Examiner accreditation by graduating from the workshop:
