With every spin of a wind turbine, the world moves faster towards widespread renewable energy production. But to keep up (while also maintaining safe environments), industry-led training providers need to move with it. That’s where the Global Wind Organisation comes in – setting standards from within.

Below, we’ll bring you up to speed on what GWO training is, outline the benefits of becoming a provider, and share how Centre for Assessment can help you to achieve the certification you need.

What is GWO training?

Founded by wind turbine manufacturers and owners, the GWO is a non-profit training standards body. As experts in an industry of ever-present risk, they’re motivated by creating and promoting an injury-free work environment through safety training and emergency procedures. Striving to increase productivity in wind-related roles, their standards set the requirements for providers to deliver high-quality courses.

Once GWO certified, providers are considered competent and proficient in delivering training material to individuals working within the sector. Following this, a GWO certificate is provided to all who meet the course’s learning objectives – creating a safer, more productive workforce on a global scale.

Why become a provider?

As a training provider, GWO standards are a great string to add to your bow. You’ll deliver vital courses to an industry that’s constantly growing, and shape the minds of individuals responsible for pushing the world in the right direction. It’s a risk-filled working environment where health, safety, and productivity are of paramount importance.

With this in mind, the GWO ensures the sector is entirely equipped across its various associated roles. As well as a focus on safety and productivity, other benefits include the standardisation of entry-level training, global reach that retains local sourcing, and supply chain alignment of safety training activities across all contractors. Further information about GWO training online can be found here.

How to gain certification

Once you decide to become a provider, the next step is to gain approval from a GWO certification body – like Centre for Assessment (CfA). To progress with GWO training in the UK, you’ll need to meet four elements: physical resources, management systems, staff resources, and training and assessment. Following this, your individual training modules will be subject to an audit from the provider, which CfA performs in a robust and high-quality manner. Learn more about what this entails here.
