Technicians will develop an understanding and awareness of the associated health and safety issues when working on the installation phase of a project
A new Installation module has been developed and added to the Basic Technical Training standard as an addition to the Mechanical module.
The BTT Installation Module is designed to provide technicians with an understanding and awareness of the associated health and safety issues when working on the installation phase of a project. Delegates will develop their knowledge of how to store and handlee quipment, avoid dropped object incidents and work safely during lifting operations as well as usage of power/hydraulic tools while being supervised by an experienced technician.
The Installation module is not part of the recommended trio of BTT core technical modules, and it is up to the duty holder/employer to decide if this training is required. However, in order to attend the BTT Installation module, delegates must first be certified in the BTT Mechanical module.

Basic Safety Training (BST) version 11 and Basic Technical Training (BTT) version 4 will no longer be valid from 1st July. Use of unpublished versions by GWO training providers may be considered a non-compliance.
