GWO Training

We encourage a positive learning environment through participant engagement and hands on practical exercises in our courses to ensure students get the most out of the courses they attend.

GWO training standards are courses that teach you to understand and reduce the risk associated with safety hazards in the wind turbine industry. The latest versions of all GWO training standards are available on the GWO website. The content of these standards are reviewed and updated by GWO committees including the Training CommitteeAudit & Compliance CommitteeGWO North American Committee and GWO China Committee, to ensure a safe work environment for anyone working in the wind turbine industry.


TRR offers the GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) and the Basic Safety Training Refresher (BST-R)

GWO BST training will enable participants to support and care for themselves and others working in the industry by possessing the knowledge and skills of first aid, working at heights, manual handling, and fire awareness. TRR’s GWO Basic Safety Training will cover the following 4 modules:


First Aid

The aim of the BST First Aid Module is to enable participants, through theoretical and practical training, to recognise signs and symptoms of life threating situations and administer safe and effective first aid in the wind turbine industry/WTG environment in order to save lives and prevent further injury, until the casualty can be handed over to the next level of care.

Manual Handling

The aim of this module is to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries for wind technicians in the wind industry and enable participants to perform their tasks and activities in the safest possible way when working in a wind turbine environment.

Fire Awareness

The aim of this module is to enable the participants to prevent fires, make appropriate judgements when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel and ensure all are safely accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire. If the incident is judged to be safe, the participants should be able to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic handheld firefighting equipment.

Working at Heights

The aim of this module is to enable the participants, through theoretical and practical training, to use basic personal protective equipment, work safety at height and perform comprehensive basic rescue from height in a remote wind turbine environment.  This course is not designed to test the participants’ capability and aptitude for working at height, i.e. It is not a test for fear of heights.
