Join GWO for our new Expert Series Webinars in which we investigate the topic of digitalisation and training. In this special North America focused edition, we meet some of the market's leading safety and training leaders to discuss their views on how a transition to digital delivery could impact training quality in the context of GWO standards.

As digital technologies promise so much, can they be implemented in a GWO training system and support learning objectives to the same degree of quality? Could digital training one day comprise 100% of a GWO course? We'll consider these topics and more with our panel, followed by a chance for you to ask them questions.
