The revised Basic Safety Training Sea Survival Module has been published today
The revised Basic Safety Training Sea Survival Module has been published today, with BST Version 11 arriving after lengthy consultation with training providers and members.
Almost half (46%) of the total number of training providers certified to train the module participated in the consultation and the resulting standard reflects this feedback process.
Jakob Bjørn Nielsen, Senior Training Advisor at Global Wind Organisation, explains: "There are a range of revisions to the standard including changes to the ratio between practical and theory-based training, updates to the module's delivery and new exercises. The duration of the training has reduced to a single day, from the previous 12 hours and the practical elements have increased to 82% of the total from 68% in version 10 of the standard."
The GWO 2019 work plan includes several new and enhanced training standards. All are the result of close collaboration between 16 globally leading wind energy companies who are the industry's largest employers.
Analysis shows up to an 80% commonality between GWO members' existing blade repair training programmes in terms of basic safety and skills.
Global Wind Organisation is looking for a new team member to join our Secretariat in Copenhagen as Training Project Manager. If you are ready to take the next step and contribute your experience of project management in training development, apply before 14th December 2018.
From April 2019, certification bodies must document one of three ways their auditors are qualified to certify a GWO training site or course.
GWO training providers opened 21 new locations between July and September 2018.
