About this course

As of the 1st April 2018, all GWO members expect technicians working on their wind turbines to have a valid GWO BTT Certificate.

Working in partnership with CWind, we now offer this course as a fully mobile training solution bringing our trainers and equipment direct to your site.

The BTT was developed by GWO in response to the demand for recognisable Basic Technical Training in the industry and has been prepared in co-operation with the members of GWO based on risk assessments and factual incident and accident statistics pertaining to the installation, service and maintenance of WTGs and wind farms
