Criteria for Certification Bodies

These criteria have been developed in cooperation between members of GWO and a variety of other stakeholders from the wind turbine industry. Their objective is to support common industry training standards for health and safety and the criteria must be followed by all certification bodies when they audit an independent training provider. The GWO Criteria for Training Providers can be found here.
