ABOUT GLOBAL WIND ORGANISATION

GWO training courses, which are accredited, allow you to qualify for essential safety standards from the Global Wind Organisation, which allow you to work in the wind energy industry and around wind turbines with the necessary knowledge to avoid injuries.

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 Basic Safety Training Package

A GWO Basic Safety Training Package covers all of the GWO accredited training modules needed in order to start working on offshore renewable energy platforms, or to continue working in the industry at the desired standard.

The modules covered include:

  • GWO Fire Awareness
  • GWO First Aid
  • GWO Manual Handling
  • GWO Sea Survival
  • GWO Working at Height

You can find out more about individual GWO training modules below, or on each module’s booking page.

By booking a complete GWO Basic Safety Training Package, you benefit from taking the modules together in a single block of 6.5 days, as well as making a substantial saving on the total price compared with booking all of the modules separately.

GWO Accredited Training Modules

If you prefer to complete the individual GWO training course modules at your own pace, perhaps because you want to focus on one assessment at a time, or because you want to spread out the time you spend in training, we have individual training module courses available.

These include:

  • GWO Fire Awareness (0.5 days) – Gain a valid fire awareness certificate valid for two years.
  • GWO First Aid (2 days) – General First Aid skills to preserve human life in an emergency.
  • GWO Manual Handling (0.5 days) – Manual lifting of people and objects as part of rescue efforts.
  • GWO Sea Survival (1.5 days) – How to survive in a rescue scenario at sea in all conditions.
  • GWO Working at Height (2 days) – Hazard awareness and techniques at height on wind turbines.

Again, you can read more about any of our individual GWO accredited training modules by visiting the booking page for that individual GWO training course, where you can also see all of the upcoming dates, pricing and availability for each different module.

GWO Accredited Refresher Courses

GWO certificates must be refreshed every two years, before your current certificate expires – so make sure to book a GWO refresher course and allow time in case your preferred dates are already fully booked.

GWO refresher courses cost significantly less than undertaking each module as a new delegate, and are typically up to a day shorter too, so it’s worth making sure you book each refresher course in time.

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

Even if you did not originally take all of the modules together, you might want to refresh some modules early to bring your qualification dates together, allowing you to refresh your training just once every two years in future.

How to Book

To book GWO accredited training courses, visit the individual page for any of our GWO training modules or GWO refresher courses, where you will find a calendar of upcoming availability when you scroll to the bottom of the page.
