WINDA

On October 17, 2016, GWO launched a Global Wind Industry Training Records Database. The database goes by the acronym - WINDA. 

WINDA is a global database designed with the primary purpose of verifying the certification status of GWO Certified Training Providers and the training status of Delegates who have attended GWO certified training courses. 

Trained individuals will be required to register as Delegate users. Uploading records of training into WINDA is a requirement in the updated Criteria for Training Providers version 5 which entered into effect on October 17, 2016.

A database for the user

WINDA has been designed with a focus on simplicity and practicality.

WINDA operates with three user profiles and the core functionality for each user profile is: 

Training Providers must upload records of Delegates and can use WINDA to complement existing site management systems. Read more about how you can use WINDA as a GWO certified Training Provider.

Employers can use WINDA to look up and verify the training status of Delegates. Read more about how you can perform look-up and verify the status of trained individuals.

Delegates can access personal verified information on the status and validity of training courses completed, e.g. to demonstrate their training status to current and future employers. Read more about your options to demonstrate your competencies

Benefits of WINDA

WINDA provides assurance and confidence in the status and validity of approved Training Providers and the training status of individuals (delegates). 

The main benefits of WINDA include:
  • Virtually eliminate the risk of fraud from non-certified Training Providers
  • Increase trust in competence records and validity of Training Provider’s certification status
  • Enhancing and complementing existing company and site safety management systems
  • Reduced compliance costs by avoiding repeated employee/contractor verification checks
