Telecommunications Tower Technicians are the backbone of the wireless industry and the tower maintenance they perform at elevated heights is of critical importance to homeland security, public safety, national competitiveness and expansion of broadband. Murphy Tower’s EARN & LEARN apprenticeship program allows workers seeking adventurous outdoor jobs with no experience to start a high paying career without a degree. Our Telecommunications Tower Technician (TTT) program is comprised of a minimum of 160 hours of related classroom instruction over a one-year term, and on-the-job training starts after successful completion of our intensive two-week orientation.
Angelo Wiggins of Murphy Tower Service in Des Moines, Iowa, is featured in the movie Vertical Freedom, along with five other tower climbers from across the U.S. When asked about tower climbing he said, "To some people, we're crazy. To some people we're brave, but everyone depends on us to stay connected." To hear more of Angelo's story, watch this short movie clip from "Vertical Freedom," premiering in Las Vegas in February.
