Become a GWO Training Provider

GWO has a well established process in place to ensure the certification of independent training providers.

To obtain GWO approval, Training Providers must go through an audit process performed by an accredited Certification Body. 

The purpose of this process is to verify that the Training Provider can consistently deliver training to the relevant GWO Standards (Training Modules). 

The criteria and process is described in the document Criteria for Training Providers.

You may use any Certification Body that complies with the GWO Criteria for Certification Bodies. Inter alia, the certification body must be accredited to ISO9001 and OHSAS18001 by a member of the International Accreditation Forum and signatory to their Multilateral Recognition Agreement, and must be able to document the competence of its audit team in performing audit against the GWO standard. 

Once the entire process is finished and we have received the annual fee, you will be listed on our Interactive Training Provider Map. Please make sure that the Certification Body send required information to the GWO Secretariat,  including a copy or scan of your GWO Certificate, and detailed contact information for a relevant contact person from your company. 

What are the costs?

The costs of certification and audit is a commercial agreement between you and your Certifying Body

When certified, there is an annual licensing fee of €650 payable to GWO. When the fee has been paid, you will  be allowed to use the "Certified Training Provider" logo. You will be emailed a link to download a copy of the logo following payment.

Your company will be displayed on the Training Provider Map and you will be granted access to WINDA.

What is WINDA?

On October 17, 2016, GWO implemented a global database of training records named WINDA. GWO Criteria for Training Providers require that Training Providers upload records of all completed GWO certified training. The fee associated with WINDA is set at €10 per training record (one fee per module).
