Requirements for Performing BTT Gap Training and Merit Assessment

Following introduction of the Basic Technical Training standard for newly qualified technicians on 31.03.2018, GWO has developed a new support structure and requirements for meriting and gap training technicians with existing training.

The Requirements for performing BTT Gap Training and Merit Assessment are designed for BTT Certified Training Providers to validate pre-existing training and gap train where necessary, supporting the industry’s transition to the BTT. This process will be particularly useful for those technicians who operate either as sole traders or are employed by smaller businesses with fewer than 25 people.

The requirements provide a structure for BTT Certified Training Providers to:

a) Verify delegates’ past training
b) Deliver gap training
c) Upload BTT training records to WINDA.

Gap training can be offered against the gap analysis currently being completed by manufacturers who are members of GWO.

Gap analysis is essential to the standardization process. It provides guidance for the GWO members’ suppliers, ISPs and others who have technicians employed with legacy technical training such as Siemens 1-4 or MHI Vestas/VWS “Service & Installation D”.

The Requirements for performing BTT Gap Training and Merit Assessment stipulate that:
  1. You are certified in BTT
  2. You must verify the delegate’s pre-existing training
  3. Deliver the gap training, according to Annex 1: BTT Gap Matrix
All gap training will be offered according to the BTT Gap Matrix compiled by GWO. Compilation of the Matrix is a live process. The Matrix includes Siemens Level-1-4 and was updated with Vestas Service D and Enercon (various) on 03.04.2018. The GWO Secretariat will share the BTT Gap Matrix on an ongoing basis as Manufacturers complete their analyses.

If you are an employer with 25 or more employees and you wish to perform merit assessment of your employees against the GWO standards, you can apply for temporary rights as a merit assessor. You can read the Criteria for Temporary License as Merit Assessor here.
