Telecom Tower Technician 1 Exam Prep Course

Become Qualified & Take Your Career To The Next Level


Duration 3.5 Hours

The objective of this TTT-I training is to prepare students for the NWSA’s tower technician certification by presenting the information as it relates to a regulation or industry-specific best practice.

This tower tech training module uses the Candidate Handbook provided by NWSA as a resource for the topics included. Upon completion, the student will be better prepared to take both the written and practical TTT-1 test.

Each chapter within this tower technical course will include a short chapter quiz. These quizzes are not graded and provide the student with feedback on their understanding of a particular topic. Once all chapters of the TTT-1 test have been completed, the student is able to take the full-length Practice Test.

To get the most from this course, complete the Pre-Test and review any questions you may have missed. Use the course content to improve your knowledge. Before taking the Final Exam, take the Pre-Test again and see if you have improved. The Final Exam is setup to mimic the actual T1 Exam. Once you start the Final Exam, you cannot exit out of the Exam or review the course content. You have two attempts on the Final Exam to Practice. Good luck!
