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 certification bodies from around the world, who assess and observe GWO training before certifying them to deliver GWO standard course.
Certification Bodies must document their compliance with the GWO Requirements for Certification Bodies if they are to join our authorised list of organisations. Only those who have done so are permitted to audit GWO training.
