GWO Basic Safety Training (BST)

The GWO Basic Safety Training course is a range of basic classes for wind turbine technicians. Specialist qualifications allow you to work at heights in accordance with the applicable safety standards. Our packages of courses meet the requirements of the Global Wind Organization. During the course, students will learn how to behave during fire hazards, how to perform first aid, how to work safely at height and move objects. Main idea of the BST courses is to ensure the safety of wind turbine technicians, as their work can be dangerous. Courses are important for example for technicians, because is a certain qualification.

BST trainings are an extensive knowledge resource allowing to work according to accepted legal standards. Whole package is a set of training courses, which in combination are cheaper and shorter than the courses taken individually, one by one. By choosing the Combined option, you will acquire the necessary competences much faster and cheaper. GWO Basic Safety Training Combined to:

  • Fire Awareness,
  • First Aid,
  • Working at Height,
  • Manual Handling.

The training takes place in a dedicated centre equipped with a lecture hall and facilities necessary to perform practical exercises, so in addition to the knowledge itself, delegates will also acquire skills. As far as the practical part of GWO Basic Safety Training is concerned, it is conducted using the equipment used in wind turbines, so the exercises provide a real basis for starting work on a wind farm.

Objectives

The standard GWO BST modules are designed so that technicians can work in a wind turbine environment. The BST course is a basic knowledge, without which no wind turbine activity can be performed, as an employee without a valid certificate will not be allowed to work. Knowledge of first aid, fire awareness, moving objects and working at heights is crucial for human life, which is why it is so important.

Legal standards

Basic Technical Training has been prepared to ensure the best possible safety of wind turbine technicians in the marine and onshore environment. The training is conducted in accordance with current legal procedures, as safety is the main priority at work. The law is changing, so the training programme is simultaneously updated on an ongoing basis.

GWO Basic Safety Training
Requirements

Before starting the training it is necessary to have an entry in the WINDA register. This online database helps trainees to demonstrate their competences electronically, so it also makes it easier for the organisers. Apart from registration in the Elevator database, no documents are required, while experience in RES-related industries is welcome.

Physical requirements

GWO training modules can be potentially physically demanding. Therefore, a clear obstacle to taking up work after the course can be height fear. The organisers do not require documented medical examinations from the trainees, as the only formal obstacle to starting the course is a minor. Work on windmills takes place in difficult conditions, so it is worthwhile for the delegates to demonstrate good psychophysical condition.

Benefits

Completing the BST Combined course is a knowledge package that will help you start in the RES industry. At the end of the GWO Basic Safety Training course participants will receive a certificate which will be honoured in the labour market all over the world. To obtain the certificate you have to pass a final exam and demonstrate your attendance on each day of classes.

Costs

The price of the course is relatively low in relation to earnings, as already 2 weeks of work on the windmills reimburse all the costs incurred to join the training. An investment in GWO training is a certainty of stable employment, therefore it is worth betting on work in the wind industry.

Financing 

Global Wind Consulting offers attractive forms of support for people wishing to change and start working in the most profitable and future-oriented industry of the 21st century. If you are interested in funding click here. Relatively high prices of trainings are subsidized from EU funds, you can also get a loan for them. You certainly have many doubts, so we are waiting for your contact to dispel them.

The training to Work at Height is a basic course for wind turbine technicians. Working at Height course is accredited by the Global Wind Organization and is recognised in the global labour market. After the training, students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of the applicable national regulations for working at heights, will learn about personal protective equipment (lanyards, harnesses, helmets, etc.), and will demonstrate their knowledge and ability to use belaying equipment correctly.

During the theoretical part, delegates will learn about issues related to safe working at heights. It takes place in the lecture hall with the help of multimedia presentation and didactic aids. The practical part is a simulation of real activities. Playing the scenarios serves the purpose of acquiring practical knowledge and educating the students in appropriate habits. Each student uses equipment assigned by the instructor.

The Working At Heights training includes:

– regulations and legislation, hazards when working on a turbine,
– vertical belaying systems issues,
– discussion of systems to prevent falls from a height,
– to determine your position at work,
– a broad description of the security and belay systems,
– simulation of real events,
– description of personal protective equipment,
– operating rescue equipment,
– educating the participants in the right habits to conduct an effective rescue operation.

GWO Fire Awareness is a basic training on fire protection in the wind turbine environment. The classes include information on the principles of fire protection, fire prevention, the use of fire fighting equipment during a fire and handling extreme situations.

Theoretical part consists of classes in the lecture hall and practical simulations of real events in which the student will develop appropriate habits. A priority of Fire Awareness training is high safety standards and broadening fire awareness of the students.

The Fire Awareness training includes:

– introduction,
– law in the fire sector,
– issues related to the turbine fire,
– simulation of real events.
