GWO has developed a merit process that enables companies to assess existing qualifications and training among staff and merit those that fulfill the criteria to an equivalent GWO training record in WINDA.
The merit process is intended for use by new GWO members and other companies who wish to migrate to future use of GWO Safety Training Standards and to the GWO database WINDA for verification, and wish to establish recognition for previous non-certified safety training of their personnel.
The merit process will enable companies to recognize the safety competences compliant to the GWO Safety Training Standards for a population of technicians that need a merit record of training to perform their duties, and where these technicians have their competences from other wind industry relevant training than GWO Standard Training.
The merit process includes a formal application, gap analysis and documentation as described in the Criteria for Merit Assessor and a subsequent video audit.
