Basic Technical Training Standard

The GWO Basic Technical Training standard consists of the following course modules:


Recognition of prior qualifications & experience
GWO recognises that many experienced technicians working in the wind industry have equivalent or superior knowledge and skills to those defined in the BTT Standard. Our Merit process has been developed so companies can align their training programmes with the BTT and perform a self assessment of their current staff. You can read about the merit process and how to apply for a license as Merit Assessor here.
Effective date

After 31st March 2018, all new technicians working for GWO member companies and their suppliers, will be expected to complete the BTT Standard.

Those who have existing training from GWO member companies will have their skills merit assessed over the coming months and where appropriate, they will be offered gap training to fill in any of the missed learning objective.
