As a Delegate, WINDA has one primary function which is to upload and verify your training records to employers and others. The upload of records into WINDA will become a requirement to verify your training status. It is therefore important that you create a profile in WINDA before you attend a training course from October 17, 2016.
When you have successfully completed a GWO Training course, your Training Provider will upload the record of the completed course into WINDA. It is therefore necessary that you have created a profile in WINDA and supplied the Training Provider with your unique ID.
When you show up for a training course in the GWO training standards, you must always remember to bring government issued ID such as a driver's license or passport as well as your WINDA ID.
The WINDA ID is your unique identification number. All Delegates must provide their WINDA ID prior to leaving the Training Provider after passing a Training Module, if they wish to have their training accepted by GWO.
Delegates will have to create a profile in WINDA in order to receive a WINDA ID. The process is automated and instantaneous and the same WINDA ID follows you through your career in the wind industry.
The WINDA ID is a unique, random and system generated number which serves as the main Delegate identification. It is therefore important that you always keep your WINDA profile active and up to date and supply employers and Training Providers with your ID when requested.
You must only register for one profile in WINDA. If you have multiple WINDA accounts, the Training Provider will not be able to upload records to each account and your accounts may be closed without warning by GWO.
You can view your own training records in WINDA and print a copy of them. The printed copy is not valid as a certificate but it provides your employer with the option to enter the WINDA ID on the certificate and confirm the details.
You are also able to search for other Delegate's training records if they have provided you with their WINDA ID.
Any records of training that have been completed prior to October 17, 2016 will not be added to your profile. Therefore, You will still need to present your certificate to your employers until you attend the refresher course which will then be added to your profile in WINDA.
You need to sign in or register as a Delegate at winda.globalwindsafety.org via the “Register” option. Choose to be registered in WINDA as a Delegate and fill out the required information.
Once you have submitted your details, you will automatically be sent an e-mail requesting you to set up the account.
