GWO Basic Technical Training

The Basic Technical Training accreditation is designed to equip technicians with a strong practical knowledge of the key technical aspects of wind turbines. Introduced in 2017, the Basic Technical Training Standard consists of three core modules and an additional installation module which can be taken after certification in the mechanical module.
