GWO is looking for certified training providers to support its review of standards from October 2020-March 2021
GWO is making its annual call for Training Providers to join its working groups, as we embark on the next round of reviews and updates to the training standards portfolio. This vital work ensures the standards are relevant to the safety of our workforce and it is hugely important the community of training providers is included alongside the GWO membership in this process.
Several training standards are being reviewed during the next development cycle between October 1 2020 and March 31 2021
GWO is commencing the review of several modules:
Being part of the review working groups gives training providers the chance to influence the direction of the training standards and opens access to updates and changes as they are created.
The workload for each review working group will be approximately 2-3 workshops and 5-10 online meetings dependent on the training standard.
