“TIRAP-participating employers are hiring in seven of the top ten Spanish-speaking states ,” said WIA President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein. “Reducing language barriers in the telecommunications industry is a no-brainer. Offering training materials in an apprentice’s native language will result in training efficiency, meaningful careers, and a more diverse workforce ready to build and maintain next-generation 5G infrastructure.”
“It is crucial to provide this resource to a diverse workforce so that each individual is able to clearly understand the program’s policies and procedures and can successfully progress from apprentice to fully-trained technician,” said TIRAP Chairperson David Sams. “Providing training materials in more than one language offers opportunity to a wider audience of individuals looking to join or remain gainfully employed in the workforce, and most importantly, these materials will have a positive impact on safety in the wireless industry.”
The Telecommunications Tower Technician Mentoring and Education Guide is also available in English.
