The Blade Repair working group completed this final draft five weeks ahead of schedule.
The GWO Blade Repair Standard has been published in draft. Training providers can review the draft and feed back comments to the working group by emailing GWO.
Certification can also be sought using the draft version of the standard. Version 1 will be launched on 1st April 2019.
The Blade Repair working group completed this final draft five weeks ahead of schedule, to allow training providers an early view of the learning objectives contained in the standard.
Requiring 10 days’ instruction, it represents an industry approved curriculum to train technicians up to a minimum standard of skills in safety and craftsmanship.
Jakob Kristensen, SGRE Global Competency Manager, Organizational change, Product Management, Strategic Analysis, Execution has led the GWO Blade Repair Working Group.
He explains: "Delegates will after completing the course, have a foundation of skills to complete repairs to damage on the blade surface, trailing edge, leading edge, sandwich panel and bond line.”
Material changes will not be made to the standard before implementation.
However, additional guidelines for implementation will be published alongside the launch and training providers are encouraged to send feedback to email@example.com
