As part of GWO's ongoing commitment to good governance of its worldwide training network, a trio of Auditor Qualification Training (AQT) courses will take place in the United States, Denmark and China.
Newly certified GWO training sites grew by 31% in 2018 and from April 2019, certification bodies must document one of three ways their auditors are qualified to certify a GWO training site or course.
To support certification bodies, maintain quality and meet this growing market need, GWO is conducting three Auditor Qualification Training Courses during February and March 2019.
Beginning in San Diego on 26th February, a group of delegates from certification bodies in North America will be guided according to a new AQT Standard. The course will cover in particular the issue of training quality assessment, helping auditors recognise good or bad training when witnessed.
The second AQT course takes place in Europe at GWO Headquarters in Copenhagen. The AQT will then be delivered at Gamesa Wind in Tianjin, China.
Version 5 of the GWO Criteria for Certification Bodies introduced the following requirements:
These requirements will be mandated from 1st April 2019
New member estimates how many of its employees and contractors could potentially be in scope
Workforce and employers benefit as GWO training up 26% in first half of 2019
Goal to optimize supply chain and source talent from certified training providers through contractors, owner operators and manufacturers to continuously improve core safety competencies.
The certification body you appoint to audit your site must appear on the GWO's approved list
