An update on new training provider certifications from around the world.
Training providers located in Africa, Asia, South and Central America have been certified in the past two months and are now part of the Global Wind Organisation network.
During March and April 2019, 11 companies in eight different countries completed their certification as GWO Training Providers.
GWO would like thank these organisations for supporting our industry's mission of creating an injury free working environment in wind energy.

Old versions of GWO standards are available for three months, but our survey discovered 30% of training providers could be waiting up to 12 weeks to implement the new version.
Basic Safety Training (BST) version 11 and Basic Technical Training (BTT) version 4 will no longer be valid from 1st July. Use of unpublished versions by GWO training providers may be considered a non-compliance.
As Taiwan prepares to develop 5.5 GW of offshore wind by 2025, a delegation from the country's leading science and technology university visited GWO on a fact finding mission.
When a new member company joins GWO, an onboarding process begins to help align safety practices with established, global standards. We report on The Nordex Group’s plans which include merit for up to 500 working at height certifications.
GWO has begun its first project to translate its standards and criteria into another language.
