Item 7.5.4 of the Requirements for Certification Bodies will become mandatory from 1st October 2020
Authorised certification bodies are being reminded that from 1st October 2020, GWO will require receipt of an audit report for all initial, surveillance and recertification audits.
Failure to provide audit reports will result in delay to certification of training providers' authorisation and potentially their right to complete GWO training courses.
This update was first published in the Requirements for Certification Bodies v7 on 21st April 2020.
For an explanation of the specific requirements, please view our recent webinar:
The programme will have particular relevance to workers in developing offshore wind areas, where transition from oil and gas is a key policy priority for governments.
GWO is beginning a information campaign to support workers looking to transition from sunset industries like oil and gas into wind power
GWO is looking for certified training providers to support its review of standards from October 2020-March 2021
GWO has improved the look and feel of its training standards to make them more readable. Lesson elements remain unchanged and existing versions are still valid.
