Principles of Light Duty Towing & Recovery Guide
As the “voice of America’s towing industry” the TRAA has created the Principles of Light Duty Towing & Recovery: A Resource Guide for Light Duty Towing & Recovery Operators to define the basic towing services, skills, topics, and procedures that should be known by a light duty tow truck operator within the United States. For the purposes of this guide, a light duty tow truck operator is defined as a person capable of executing the proper and safe towing and recovery of vehicles under 10,001 GVWR and related services.
Additionally, the guide may be used as a preparation tool for the TROCP™ Level 1 – Light Duty certification exam available at www.towcert.com. As a professional certification program, the Towing & Recovery Operator Certification Program™ (TROCP™) is intended to measure certain basic knowledge, skills, and competencies that have been deemed appropriate for those employed as light duty tow truck operators. Participants must demonstrate that they meet these predetermined standards by successfully completing the corresponding assessment.
Principles of Light Duty Towing & Recovery: A Resource Guide for Light Duty Towing & Recovery Operators is available as an ebook, paperback, and hardcover on Amazon.
