Safety Certification

The IWCA Safety Certification Program provides the training and knowledge to create safe, well trained, and educated window cleaners and trainers. Our Safety Training programs adhere to OSHA regulations and are based on our long standing OSHA Alliance relationship with Federal OSHA. We are one of only a handful of organizations to hold this esteemed distinction. This sets our training far apart from any other organizations and offerings available today. As a member you receive discounted pricing to our safety training hands on programs and our online programs, making it even more beneficial to you and your staff. You can be sure that when you sign up as a member today and take part in our Safety Programs, OSHA acknowledges your training certifications and becomes an ally.

Types of Certifications

All Certification Courses below are housed inside Campus IWCA now. They are all available in English and Spanish. The Certificate of Certification will print immediately after you pass with a 90% or above on any of the courses and finish the survey (Module 4). It will show up in the grades section of your portal next to the course and say “Certificate”. You can click and print it there.

If you do not pass the course the first time, you will need to pay again to take it again. Please do not start the course test (Module 3) unless you are ready to sit for up to 2 hours to take it. Do not move forward to the next question unless you are certain of the answer you are picking. Once you launch the course the first time, you have 30 days to complete the course and test or you will need to pay for it again to take it.
