Training

The National Floor Safety Institute’s (NFSI) Walkway Auditor Certificate Holder (WACH) Training course objective is to educate individuals involved in the walkway safety industry on the proper techniques of auditing the traction of building walkways through observation and measurement based on the NFSI B101 Standards.

This program’s mission is “to educate professionals about current walkway standards, the measurement of coefficient of friction and the performance of a proper walkway audit.”

Our Walkway Auditor Certificate Holder now has an online option! The online version can be taken when it’s convenient for your schedule.  We will offer three different dates in the fall for Session 5. With the online version, you will still receive a copy of the course slides and a copy of the NFSI standards that are covered in the Course. Participants must complete all four sessions of the online WACH Course, attend Session 5 at the NFSI Southlake, Texas office and score an 80% or higher on all combined assessments to become a Walkway Auditor Certificate Holder.
