We’re pleased to announce STL USA as the first GWO training provider to offer onsite training services in the USA.



Onsite training allows us to increase the flexibility of STL USA’s GWO training solutions. The solution is very simple, STL can now certify a client site for training purposes and then train technicians directly on the equipment they maintain.

The USA is a big country and whilst it has some of the best training facilities in the world it can be logistically challenging to send technicians across country for training, especially when it takes them away from their vital work. Onsite is therefore the perfect training option for smaller teams and technicians working in areas a long way from training centres. Subject to an initial risk assesment and certification which can happen a few days before or on the day training starts if we don’t encounter any surprises, both first time trainees on GWO and technicians refreshing their accreditations can be trained.

The ability to train directly on the equipment used everyday provides trainees with an an “in-country” knowledge of safety applications tailored to their specific environment. However as with all our GWO training courses this doesn’t mean they are only accredited to work on their own turbines the accreditation is universal.

Running an onsite course couldn’t be easier:

  • STL trainers come to your site
  • STL completes a full risk assessment with the customer to ensure candidate and trainer safety to complete the works on site and ensuring GWO standards are met.
  • STL issues the relevant accreditation certificates subject to successfully passing the course

Courses last the same amount of time as those run at STL’s training centers with the following Basic Safety Training modules on offer:

  • Working at Height
  • Fire Awareness
  • Manual Handling
  • First Aid onsite
