FCC Commissioner Wants Community Colleges to Become Pipelines for America’s 5G Workforce
(TLB) Editors note
The Main Stream 5G Power Brokers are marching forward with The Roll-Out with a blind eye to “science backed studies” and the other Published articles reviling the harmful affects to 5G Industry workers and the world’s population in general.
It is our take that when young people entering this work pool start coming down with Cancer and other maladies now being experienced by 5G workers, there will be Hell to Pay by the Industry, Government and Institutions of (Higher?) Learning. (TLB)
An FCC Commissioner hopes to mirror Aiken Technical College’s Tower Installation Program in other schools across the country.
In order to win the race to 5G and supply America with future generations of wireless networks, the country needs more skilled workers—and particularly, more Telecom Tower Technicians, also known as “TTT-1s.”
To establish and equip the new workforce, the government hopes to turn America’s community colleges into pipelines for 5G jobs.
“I’ve seen firsthand the work that tower crews are doing to deploy this [new 5G] infrastructure and the challenges they face in meeting the exploding demand for their services. Wireless crews estimate that they need an additional 20,000 skilled workers to complete this build,” Federal Communications Commissioner Brendan Carr said Thursday at Aiken Technical College, a South Carolina school that’s built a seven-week program for students who want to work as cellular tower installation technicians.
“It’s time we build on the success here at Aiken and stand up similar tower training programs in community colleges and technical schools throughout the U.S.,” Carr added.
Aiken Tech’s Tower Installation Program trains students for internationally-recognized certifications, including TTT-1, established by the National Wireless Safety Alliance. The school states that nearly 100 percent of its program’s graduates are placed with tower companies in the Carolinas or in Georgia after completion.
Carr said that establishing more programs like Aiken’s will help close the present skills gap and aptly address the country’s need for more TTT-1 certified workers.
“I’m already working toward that goal with efforts underway through the National Wireless Safety Alliance to establish similar programs in other communities,” Carr said.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
