What is a GWO Basic course?
A GWO Basic course is meant for people working in the wind industry. This course is mandatory, because without the basic safety training you’re not allowed to enter a windfarm or any windmill. Do you want to follow a GWO course? Then book directly the GWO Basic Safety Training course or one of the separate modules.
Global Wind Organization (GWO)
The Global Wind Organization (GWO) originated when several major players in the wind industry started a partnership. GWO makes the standard for people who work in the wind industry, both onshore and offshore. The goal is to create a safe working environment for the personnel in the wind industry.This course allows the delegate 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 and save hisself or his collegeau’s.
Basic GWO courses at FMTC Safety
The Basic Safety Training course consists of five different modules. These are GWO First Aid, GWO Working at Heights, GWO Sea Survival, GWO Fire Awareness and GWO Manual Handling. You can also follow these modules separately. During these GWO courses, the theory of the relevant subject is discussed. Later on, this theory will be applied during practical sessions.
After successful completion of the GWO courses, you will be registered on WINDA. This is an online database from GWO. This registration has a validity of 2 years, after which you need to refresh the course. This way, the participant will be up to date and will remain informed regarding the latest developments. Do you already have your GWO certificates? See here all our refresher courses.
Besides the GWO Basic courses we also have GWO advanced courses or GWO combined courses.
