The Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) Standard was released in July 2016 and has been well received by the industry. A work group under the GWO Training Committee has reviewed the standard and looked at ways to optimize it further. The work group began this work in January 2017 and the review has resulted in a larger update by the GWO Training Committee which included conducting a full pilot course.
There are several changes to the standard and some of the key points are:
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 Use of unpublished versions by GWO training providers may be considered a non-compliance.
