Building flexible training.

STL USA are delighted to introduce Bespoke Wind Technician Technical training. This program sits alongside our two standard technical options, Basic Intro and Basic Intro +. The difference is that bespoke training gives you the flexibility to build a prgram that meets the specific needs of your workforce. Program options include both industry certification, such as GWO and NFPA 70E alongside a huge choice of technical competencies that align to ACP, ANSI and GWO frameworks for wind technicians. That’s super important as the industry evolves becasue these frameworks allow skills to be standardised, which ultimately means cost savings for employers not having to train more than one version of the same skill to meet a customer requirement.

What are the courses?

This is really down to you!

The bespoke nature of these training solutions allow you to build your own program from a huge list of module options that should cover your needs. If they don’t STL USA can tap into its partner network and build out teaching knowledge to deliver something truly unique for you.

How do i build my bespoke training?

 The STL USA client team are well versed in building out solutions for clients. Bespoke Wind Technician Training is no different.

 The steps taken to build a program include:

  • Identifying who needs training – new hires, existing technicians, specialist teams?
  • Where does training need to take place – onsite, at an STL USA facility, online
  • Implementing a process for maintaining skills and updating knowledge – building in continual improvement
  • Defining a schedule – what modules apply to which technicians and when, where and how are they delivered
Once established a pilot is then scheduled to ensure that any customer spcific requirements are included into the course and that’s it, training can start.
STL USA believe this modular approach to building bespoke training is the next step in the development of workforces within wind. It allows customers to reduce costs, develop a skilled workforce and truly differentiate themselves on competency.
