GWO is beginning its review process for Advanced Rescue and Enhanced First Aid, beginning with a questionnaire for stakeholders.
Stakeholders can now support the Enhanced First Aid and Advanced Rescue Training standard review by completing our questionnaire.
With updated versions of the standard due in April 2019, we need your feedback to help our working groups identify areas in the standards that should be enhanced or improved.

Responses to the questionnaires will be compiled and fed into the ART/EFA review process for consideration by the GWO Training Committee.
GWO is also inviting stakeholders to consider applying for a role on the working groups supporting this review. If you or a colleague are interested, please emil GWO at firstname.lastname@example.org marking your subject 'EFA/ART Review Working Group'.
Over 100 community colleges teach wind turbine technician programs in North America. One GWO training provider, Safety Technology (STL) USA is moving quickly to offer a new pathway into work for college students.
EDF Renewables North America (EDFR) is the latest addition to the growing list of GWO training providers in the US market.
The next generation of wind turbine technicians were placed front and centre at GWO’s Safety & Training Forum, as training providers and employers debated the best approach to onboard thousands of new people.
