Not sure how to prepare for TROCP Level 3 certification? Preparation for certification comes in many forms: training, professional experience, and/or written resources. If you prefer to take a training, we recommend completing WreckMaster’s 6/7 course either hands-on or online. If you prefer a written resource, there is a study guide published by the Towing and Recovery Association of America, Inc. (TRAA) on Amazon. Note, you are not required to do either of the above, but both preparation options are available to you if you want them.

This is a proctored online exam, which means we’ll confirm it’s actually you taking the exam and will make sure that you don’t get any extra help to answer questions (e.g. by asking a co-worker or searching the internet).
