More than 80 entries were received and judges have created a shortlist of the top 5 finalists in eight categories
The very best examples of wind industry safety training from across the world will be on show this November, as finalists in the GWO Safety & Training Awards 2021.
Today we announce the companies and individuals who have made it onto judges' shortlists, with five finalists nominated in each of our Training Team of the Year and Young Achiever of the Year award categories. (see below for a full list)
The Training Team of the Year finalists come from far and wide, demonstrating the truly global nature of GWO's network, with nominees competing both within their regions (Americas, Europe/Africa, Asia/Pacific) and by the size of their training operation (calculated by number of courses completed).
Our Young Achiever of the Year category shines a light on some of the brightest stars in the GWO family, including several great young instructors and future leaders coming to the fore.
Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation, said:
"I would like to personally congratulate all of the finalists at this year's GWO Safety & Training Awards. This is our inaugural year and we have received more than 80 entries. That in itself is a great endorsement of our shared belief that excellence deserves recognition. The Training Team of the Year Category is designed as a platform so training providers can show off how their instructors and support staff go beyond the standard. Each of these finalists has demonstrated via a rigorous submissions process to a highly skilled panel of judges that they do exactly that. I wish them the very best of luck when we announce the winners on November 24th.
Winners will be announced at the GWO Safety & Training Awards Ceremony on 24th November. The ceremony will take place at the Safety, Skills & Training Zone, a specially created conference and exhibition space at WindEurope Electric City 2021.
