What is Global Wind Organization (GWO)?
The Global Wind Organization (GWO) started when several major players in the wind industry collebs. GWO makes the standard for people who work in the wind industry, for onshore and offshore wind. The goal is to create a safe working space for all the personnel in the wind industry.
What is a GWO Refresher course?
A GWO refresher course is meant for people working in the wind industry and already have a valid GWO certificate. This course is mandatory, because without the basic safety training you’re not allowed to enter a windmill onshore or offshore. Do you want to follow a GWO refresher course? Then book directly the GWO Basic Safety Training Refresher or one of the separate modules.
In 2012, the Basic Safety Training (GWO BST) was therefore introduced. This course allows the participant to get acquainted with the risks and dangers when working in the wind industry. During this course, the participant also learns how to handle risky situations. You need to refresh every two years your GWO courses.
