ABOUT GLOBAL WIND ORGANISATION

GWO accredited training courses (full courses and refreshers) allow you to qualify for essential safety standards from the Global Wind Organisation (GWO). These accreditations allow you to work safely and professionally in the wind energy industry. Choosing certified training providers gives you the necessary knowledge about wind turbines to avoid potential injuries. Learn more about how to become a wind turbine technician below!

Study with one of the largest providers of GWO courses globally, as identified by the Global Wind Organisation. Wind turbine training courses are one of the most popular paths delegates take to enter the industry. Ask us about all the potential roles you will qualify for upon taking GWO courses with Complete Training Solutions.

This safety standard was developed by the members of the GWO in recognition of the need for industry-wide basic safety training, and to ensure that the wind industry safety training delivered by different accredited providers is of a comparable standard of competency and proficiency.

Providers are audited in-depth and together, the GWO training they deliver is part of a platform of safety across the industry that helps to improve health and safety on work sites.

For those working in the industry, GWO certification is proof of a certain level of skills and knowledge, and should be a demonstration to colleagues of your ability to identify any risks to human safety and to take the necessary action to safeguard human life.

GWO Accredited Training Modules

Would you rather focus on one assessment at a time? Do you want to spread out the time you spend in training? We have individual training module courses available if you prefer to complete the individual training course modules at your own pace.

These include:

  • Fire Awareness (0.5 days) – Gain a valid fire awareness certificate valid for two years.
  • First Aid (2 days) – General First Aid skills to preserve human life in an emergency.
  • Manual Handling (0.5 days) – Manual lifting of people and objects as part of rescue efforts.

GWO Accredited Refresher Courses

GWO certificates must be refreshed every two years before your current certificate expires. It is recommended you book your GWO refresher course ahead of time in case your preferred dates are already fully booked.

These courses cost significantly less than undertaking each module as a new delegate. Additionally, GWO courses can be up to a day shorter than each module.

If you originally qualified for a GWO Basic Safety Training Package, you can refresh all of your GWO course modules at once. Meanwhile, you can use our Basic Safety Training Course Refresher Package to save you time and money.

Haven’t taken all of the modules together during your trainings in the past?  In short, we recommend refreshing some modules early to bring your qualification dates together. Consequently, choosing an all-inclusive package allows you to refresh your training once every two years.
