Download GWO's latest report on partnership models to help get your training center certified
Companies are seeing the growing demand for wind turbine technicians, and Global Wind Organisation’s (GWO) training catalog is the clear choice for developing the workforce. GWO has forecast that over 75,000 people will require the basic entry-level standard training to work on North America’s onshore and offshore wind turbines over the next five years.
As prospective training providers evaluate GWO standards, they may have questions about the most efficient and effective ways to achieve certification. GWO has today published a new guide on the options available.

October 4th will be a special day as our community of safety and training in wind energy gathers in person for an all-new event in Copenhagen.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, the GWO Audit & Compliance committee has issued advisory notes communicating agreed advice, guidance and exemptions from our regular governance (requirements and standards).
Global Wind Organisation (GWO) and the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) have signed a two-year partnership agreement to highlight the importance of safety, training and job creation to power wind energy development and the global energy transition. The wind energy industry is a major opportunity for countries to create high-skilled, local jobs to boost economic growth and reach their Paris Agreement goals.
The taxonomy establishes a transparent and coherent framework to describe safety training characteristics, allowing for a better understanding of “what good training looks like”.
The modules are reviewed in response to feedback from GWO members and 2020 workplace data from G+ which places manual handling incidents in the top three most reported injury processes.
