NWSA Offers Rigger, Signalperson Certification Programs
Monday, November 23, 2015 | Comments

The National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) introduced CCO Rigger and Signalperson Certification programs. The programs are the first two assessment and certification offerings available to the wireless industry’s workforce through the NWSA.

The programs are offered through a partnership with the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). The nationally recognized and internationally accredited certification programs are the culmination of many years of hard work by NCCCO and experts from the various industries and groups that use rigging and cranes; including construction, steel erection, ironworkers, operating engineers, utilities, petrochemicals, specialty rigging companies and sling manufacturers.

“The formal introduction of the certification programs represents a significant milestone for the organization,” said NWSA Board of Governors Chairman Art Pregler from AT&T. “For the first time, workers in the wireless industry will be able to obtain nationally recognized and ANSI accredited certification through the NWSA.”

The rigger program will include certification offerings for both a rigger level I category and a rigger level II category. A certified rigger is a person trained and certified to handle rigging equipment to lift and move loads. The signalperson certification program is designed for signalpersons who are trained and who will use hand and voice signals in crane operation.

The NWSA is a national nonprofit assessment and certification organization.
