The free training courses throughout the country are available to NATE members and non-members. Hundreds of industry workers have taken advantage of the outreach program.

The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) will be facilitating one Train-the-Trainer Course and twelve Fall Prevention Worker Training Courses throughout the United States in 2017. NATE is pleased to offer these training courses free of charge to members and non-members, and anticipates that the sessions will achieve the Association’s objectives of having a nation-wide impact, helping small businesses establish a culture of safety and enhancing worker quality and safety.

Both the Train-the-Trainer Course and the Fall Prevention Worker Training Courses are made possible due to a Susan Harwood Training grant (SH-29596-SH6) from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.

NATE is planning to host these complimentary, grant-enabled courses in Biddeford, Maine; Glen Ellyn, Illinois; Indianapolis, Indiana; Fort Worth, Texas; Baltimore, Maryland; Franklin, Tennessee; Las Vegas, Nevada; Phoenix, Arizona; Alpharetta, Georgia; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Kansas City, Missouri and Boca Raton, Florida throughout 2017.

“NATE is excited to offer these Susan Harwood Training Courses in 12 new markets in 2017,” stated Executive Director Todd Schlekeway. “We encourage all industry employees and employers interested in participating in the training sessions to register soon as interest in the courses remains very high,” added Schlekeway.
