The newest member of GWO's global training provider network has been unveiled
The newest member of GWO's global training provider network has been unveiled, with Guodian United Power-owned Star Wind Energy receiving its certification at a ceremony in Beijing today.
The company joins a fast-growing group of GWO certified training providers in China and is the first business in that country to receive authorisation to train both the Basic Safety Training and Basic Technical Training standards.
GWO Chief Executive Jakob Lau Holst congratulated Guodian and Star Wind Energy on its certification at a ceremony held at this week's China Windpower conference.
"I am delighted to be given the honour of presenting Guodian United Power and Star Wind Energy with their GWO certification today," said Jakob. "It is the stated aim of our Chinese member companies to have an increased number of training providers able to deliver according to GWO standards and this represents a further step in achieving that goal. I look forward to working with them and all of our Chinese stakeholders on an increasing basis over the coming months and years."
The Star Wind Energy training facility was certified by TÜV Rheinland.
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.
