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.
The GWO Training Standards Portfolio has received a new design upgrade, improving readability to help training providers and certification bodies find the information they need.
While no lesson elements have been altered, the documents themselves are slightly shorter. We have removed references to information already contained in the Requirements for Training Providers and Certification Bodies to avoid repetition.
The re-designed standards have been labelled with the current version number, and the addition of '.1' - therefore the Basic Safety Training Standard version 13.1 is now published. There is no difference between the lessons and learning objectives contained in this version compared with version 13, so your previous copy remains valid.
