Why become a GWO auditor/certification body?

Certification bodies are essential in the governance system of GWO Standards. Without them, training providers cannot deliver GWO training and worker safety is potentially at risk.

GWO relies on the quality and professionalism of over 40 certification bodies from around the world, who assess and observe GWO training at source, before signing off either a fixed facility, mobile training or on site training solution to deliver GWO standard course.

Certification Bodies must document their compliance with the GWO Requirements for Certification Bodies if they are to join the authorised list of organisations. Only those who have done so are permitted to audit GWO training.

What are the benefits of becoming a GWO auditor/certification body?

  • Get found by new customers: Both prospective GWO training providers and those seeking recertification must choose a supplier from the authorised list of GWO certification bodies.
Between June-December 2019, users of the GWO web site clicked on links to certification body web sites more than 3500 times. It is in our mutual interest to promote certification bodies on the GWO list.
  • A rapidly growing market with repeat business opportunities: 76 new training provider sites were certified in 2019. Each site/certification requires a recertification after three years, plus a surveillance audit during the certification period
  • Global expansion: GWO members are committed to the adoption of GWO standards in ALL wind markets. Our Safety Without Borders strategy points the way to a doubling of GWO training worldwide by the end of 2022
