Workforce and employers benefit as GWO training up 26% in first half of 2019
Thursday 12th September 2019 – Workers employed by or contracting with the world’s leading wind energy companies increasingly follow a single, global training standard.
New figures from Global Wind Organisation (GWO), a non-profit body owned by leading turbine manufacturers and owners reveal a 26% increase in the amount of training courses delivered according to its standards.
GWO aligns the basic training programs of its member companies into a single unified standard. The training is then recognised by the member companies, helping to create a safer and more productive workforce.
Eloy Jauregui, Director of Safety at Acciona Energia and Chairman of Global Wind Organisation, said:
“Our mission is to create an injury-free working environment for our workforce and GWO standards ensure a good minimum level of training, reducing the risk of injury. I am delighted so many people now hold a GWO certificate. Our task remains to make GWO standards available to everyone, particularly in China and the Americas, where demand is very strong.”

Learning objectives in GWO standards are focused in the domains of "knowledge" and "skill". How often you refresh your training to maintain that knowledge and skill depends on a huge variety of factors.
