NWSA Completes ANSI Review Process
Wednesday, October 27, 2021 | Comments

The National Wireless Safety Alliance (NWSA) announced today that the organization has successfully completed the required American National Standards Institute (ANSI) National Accreditation Board (ANAB) year-one surveillance review process.

ANAB’s audit of NWSA occurs annually as a requirement of its accreditation, with an on-site inspection by ANAB auditors every other year. ANAB requires specific data be submitted on an annual basis and it only grants continued accreditation if all requirements are met.

“NWSA is excited to have received this positive surveillance review from ANAB affirming our industry’s specific trade certification programs,” said Executive Director Duane MacEntee. “Achieving this continued ANSI accreditation is validation that the NWSA is the gold-standard for professional trade certification programs offered in the communications infrastructure industry. Today’s news will help NWSA continue to scale our programs among the workforce throughout the industry.”

The surveillance review process, led by an ANAB assessment team, ultimately concluded that based on the review of the materials, onsite assessments, and random sampling process, NWSA continues to meet all the requirements set forth in ISO/IEC 17024, as well as ANAB policies and procedures. ANAB’s decision is significant as it equates to continued accreditation to the ISO/EIC 17024 Standard for NWSA’s Telecommunications Tower Technician I (TTTI) and Telecommunications Tower Technician II (TTTII) trade certification programs.

“On behalf of the ANSI National Accreditation Board, I would like to congratulate NWSA for achieving this significant accomplishment and demonstrating continued compliance with the standard. We look forward to a continued partnership with NWSA,” said Dr. Vijay Krishna, ANAB senior director, personnel credentialing accreditation programs.
