GWO training courses

A GWO certificate is a certificate you will receive if you have successfully completed GWO training. The Global Wind Organization (GWO) is a non-profit organization founded by companies in the wind industry with the goal of improving the safety and quality of training for workers in the wind industry.

The GWO standard training includes several modules, including working at height, first aid, firefighting, marine survival and rescue training. The purpose of the training is to provide you, if you work in the wind industry, with the knowledge and skills you need to perform your job safely and efficiently, and to minimize the risks of injury or accidents.

The GWO certificate is often required by employers in the wind industry as proof that an employee has received the necessary training and has the appropriate skills and knowledge to work safely. The certificate is valid for 2 years and must then be renewed by attending repeat training.

In short, a GWO certificate is proof of successful completion of GWO standard training for workers in the wind industry and indicates that the certificate holder has the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely in this industry.
