Gain a Global Wind Organisation Blended Basic Safety Training accreditation and start your career in the renewable and wind energy industry. GWO Blended BST training is a 5 module package that enables workers to work onshore or offshore – the blended version allows delegates to do their theory modules online and visit the centre to complete their practical modules. By participating in blended learning, the amount of days needed off-site to complete training is reduced – meaning a cost saving for employers on less time spent out of the business, transport (and often accommodation). Blended Basic Safety Training (BST), participants will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working within the wind industry and how to control and mitigate these hazards. BST training will also equip participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to appropriately respond in the event of an emergency and to increase their safety through proper use of Personal Protective Equipment, emergency equipment and procedures.
The course covers the following modules: GWO Fire Awareness, GWO First Aid, GWO Sea Survival & GWO Working at Height and Manual Handling Combined.
