GWO E-learning refresher training courses at FMTC Safety

Our GWO E-learning refresher safety courses are intended for people who work in the wind energy sector and need to refresher their current valid GWO certificates. The E-learning refresher courses are based on a blended learning method. This means that you can do the e-learning theoretical part by yourself at your own time & place and only have to some to do the practical exercises at one of our training locations.

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.

In 2012, the GWO Basic Safety Training (GWO BST) was therefore introduced. 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.

What are the Online GWO refresher courses?

A Online GWO course is meant for people working in the wind industry. Those courses are mandatory, because without the GWO Basic Safety Training you’re not allowed to enter a wind turbine. Every two years you need to refresh your GWO certificate by doing the GWO refresher courses. Since 2020 it is possible to do the theory online, so you save money and time during your stay at the training center.

Our GWO Refresher E-learning courses

With our knowledge we where able to design the online GWO e-learnings by ourself. The theory part is therefore perfectly in line with practical part. This means that after completing the e-learning and the practical part the delegate have the same level of understanding the content of the course with or without the e-learning.

We offer the GWO Basic Safety Training Refresher E-learning. In this online GWO Basic Safety Training Refresher you do all the 5 modules together in just 3 days! So you save 1 day at the training center and you save extra hotel costs.

It is also possible to do the modules separately: GWO Fire Awareness Refresher E-learning, GWO Manual Handling Refresher E-learning, GWO Working at Heights Refresher E-learning, GWO Sea Survival Refresher E-learning and GWO First Aid Refresher E-learning. For the last two GWO refresher courses there is no online part. Due to refresher training the focus is already only practical, so you don’t have to study the theory for those GWO refresher courses.
