GWO Basic Technical Training
5 days course
Upon completion of the GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT), participants will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working on hydraulic, mechanical, electrical, and installation systems, and when working with energy powered bolt tightening and how to control and mitigate these hazards, preparing candidates for working both on and offshore in the wind power industry.
The bolt tightening and installation modules are not part of the mandatory BTT training, and it is up to the duty holder to decide if this should be mandatory training.
The GWO Basic Technical Training is divided into the following 5 modules:
Module 1: Mechanical
Module 2: Electrical
Module 3: Hydraulic
Module 4: Bolt Tightening
Module 5: Installation (Is not included in BTT. Please contact if you want the installation module additionally. The price includes only the first 4 modules!)
The Basic Technical Training modules are targeted at candidates who have no previous experience of hydraulic, mechanical, electrical or installation systems, or working with energy powered bolt tightening, but may also be used to upskill candidates who have some knowledge but not of its application in wind turbines.
The Basic Technical Training is an enduring qualification, so a validity period does not apply to this training. This is based on the expectation that the participant is actively working in a wind turbine environment. If there is an extended period of absence from applying the skills, retraining and recertification may be required according to national legislation and company policy.
