WITPAC Course Policies & Fine Print

Cancellation or rescheduling: If you need to cancel or reschedule your class, please contact our customer service team at witpac@esc.org a minimum of 5 business days prior to your scheduled class date. There is no charge to reschedule to a different date. If you must cancel, a $50 administrative fee will be applied.

Late arrival or no-show: Students should login to Zoom for class a minimum of 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. If you have not logged into your Zoom class session by the scheduled start time, you will be considered a “no-show” and will not be admitted into the class. No refunds will be given for late arrivals or no-shows. You will have to register and pay for a different instructor-led session.

Required technology: To participate in a live online instructor-led session, you MUST be able to login to Zoom from a computer or laptop with a working webcam, speakers, and microphone.  A tablet is not recommended and you may not participate in this class from a cell phone. Students who attempt to join the class without an appropriate device will not be admitted and will have to reschedule their instructor-led session (fees may apply).

Retests: Students who complete the instructor-led session but do not achieve a passing score on the final exam are eligible for one complimentary retest. The retest must be successfully passed within 30 days of the original class date. Students who do not pass their retest exam or attempt it within 30 days will have to register for and attend the entire instructor-led session again.

What requirements do I have to meet to earn the WITPAC certification?

In order to receive a WITPAC certification card, you must complete the WITPAC training AND hold either a valid P/EVO certification from one of the states listed below, or a Class A CDL from any state.

If you do not hold one of these prior qualifications, you may still participate in this course. Instead of a certification card, you will receive a proof of completion.

Where will the WITPAC instructor-led classes be held?

The WITPAC instructor-led sessions will be held virtually on Zoom, as well as in person at select locations throughout the United States. A list of approved training providers and locations will be available soon. 

Our online training option allows us to expand our reach to provide WITPAC training in states where in-person training is not available. These entirely online sessions eliminate your commute and allow you to work in a comfortable at-home learning environment, all while retaining valuable face-to-face time with the instructor and providing opportunities for student collaboration.

How did WITPAC come to be?

The manufacturers understand that training is an important part of this transformation and have commissioned a new training curriculum and certification for transportation providers. Evergreen Safety Council has been identified as the organization with the capability and experience to develop and deploy this training.

Following a number of incidents involving the transportation of wind energy components, major manufacturers GE, Siemens-Gamesa, and Vestas decided to establish standard safety practices for carriers. They recognized the importance of not only establishing new expectations, but also the need to transform the culture of the wind component transportation industry.

What does the online WITPAC course include?

The online course has five modules:

  • Teamwork and communication
  • Route surveys
  • Pre- and post-trip meetings
  • Lead and high pole P/EVO duties
  • Rear P/EVO and steerman duties

The online course will be followed by a prep exam that will help you get ready for the written knowledge test that’s administered in the instructor-led class.

How long will the online WITPAC course take?

The time needed to complete the online course will vary from person to person, but you will want to budget several hours for it. We recommend starting the online course no less than a week before your instructor-led class day. The instructor-led course is 8 hours long, including exam time.

Where will WITPAC courses be offered?

Students can register for the course through either Evergreen Safety Council (fully online classes only) or through an Evergreen Safety Council authorized training provider.

The self-directed online portion of the course will be accessible through Evergreen Safety Council’s website.

The 8-hour instructor-led course will be held either through video conferencing software (if you register for a fully online course) or in person in certain locations.
