The NWSA defines a Telecom Tower Technician 2 as “an individual who can safely perform tasks on telecommunication sites and is capable of supervision of TTT-1 technicians and trainees.” It is expected that someone operating at a TTT-2 level within the industry should possess the knowledge of a TTT-1 in addition to advanced skills commiserate with a higher level of training and experience.
At the conclusion of this online course, the student will have an opportunity to take an exam given in electronic format, similar to the NWSA exam.
