The ACCW is representing the communications construction industry within the Pacific Northwest. We recognize and understand the ever growing demand for skilled labor within our industry and the accreditation to back it up. We've entered an era that understands the need for higher safety standards along with the solution of on going training in order to stay productive. Balancing these two veribales is the key to a successful business.
The ACCW offers free annual training for Contractor Member employees. Training is designed by our board members that consist of local Municipal, County, Port, DOT, and Tribal leaders based on what they see as essential for work performed within their region of control. Training is consistent with Washington State WAC. Contract members will receive access to bid opportunities within these arenas.
Individual Members will be classified as apprentice or journeyman member. Journeyman members must show sufficient proof of at least 6000hrs in the industry and pass the ACCW exam. Apprentices will be signed on and receive annual training and certification until qualified to take journeyman exam. Individual Members will receive assisted job placement within the industry along with free annual training and certification.
