GWO Basic Safety Training (BST)

Project Description

GWO

Global Wind Organisation courses (GWO) is the standard for the people working in the wind industry, both onshore and offshore. GWO was created by Several major players in the wind industry who started working together, leading to its existence. The purpose of GWO is to create a safe working environment for the staff in the wind industry.  Any holder of a GWO certificate is considered competent and knowledgeable within Basic Safety in the wind industry.

 

WINDA

On October 17, 2016, GWO launched a Global Wind Industry Training Records Database WINDA.

Delegates can access the status and validity of training courses completed, on this database e.g. to demonstrate their training status to current and future employers and Employers can use WINDA to look up and verify the training status of delegates.

All delegates attending a GWO course must register themselves onto the WINDA database and their WINDA I.D must be given to your tutor or at the point of booking. The WINDA I.D is your unique identification number using randomly generated numbers, your initials and country of registration.  To register yourself onto the WINDA database please click here GWO-WINDA then go to the ‘Register’ option.`
