About the IWCA Safety Certification Program
IWCA Safety Certification Program consists of five different certifications: Route/Residential, Commercial Ground,
Rope Descent Systems, Suspended Scaffold and High Rise Specialist. Window cleaners learn about the safe use of basic window cleaning equipment and chemicals, and/or the use of more complicated equipment including high-rise access equipment. They will also gain an understanding of how to assess a job site for hazards and what can be done to overcome
The enrolled trainee is required to complete three online open book tests. Once those tests are complete, the trainee must take the final exam. The final exam is an in-person, proctored exam following a half-day review session. The final exam will be offered during regional safety trainings and during the annual conference. Certifications are valid for five years.
