Old versions of GWO standards are available for three months, but our survey discovered 30% of training providers could be waiting up to 12 weeks to implement the new version.
GWO training standards are constantly updated. Our working groups ensure their course curricula and learning objectives reflect real risks faced by technicians in the wind energy workplace.
This is why GWO Certified Training Providers are encouraged to always use the latest version of a standard as early as possible after launch.
After the launch of versions 5 and 12 of the BTT and BST, on April 1 2019, GWO held a webinar explaining the changes. Afterwards, we surveyed participants to find out:
1) How quickly they planned to implement the new version:
2) Do they agree with the new changes?
Always use the latest version of a GWO standard.
GWO strongly advise training providers to follow World Health Organisation guidelines for prevention in schools, workplaces and institutions, as well as to follow recommendations from national health authorities

Third party certification bodies are an essential element in the GWO governance framework. We reveal some data about which ones have certified the most.
Certification bodies are essential in the governance system of GWO Standards. Without them, training providers cannot deliver GWO training and worker safety is potentially at risk.
