The GWO Basic Safety Training E-learning course (Global Wind Organisation) is a safety course aimed at people working in the wind industry. This GWO Basic Safety Training is a training where the delegate gets acquainted with the risks and dangers of working in the offshore wind industry.

During the Online GWO Basic Safety Training course, the delegate learns not just to recognise the dangers and what to do in an emergency situation. The delegate also develops the skills to provide First Aid, to save themselves and to fight fires. Especially on an offshore wind turbine, there are no nearby emergency services. Therefore, it is very important that people know how to get themselves and others to safety when an emergency arises. The employee will be well prepared by practicing this emergency situation in a setting as realistic as possible.

With this E-learning GWO Basic Safety Training course, you save 2 days at the training center! You can do the theoretical part online at your own time en place. Save time and money and book the GWO Basic Safety Training E-learning directly via our website.
