GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) Blended Learning

A GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) Blended Learning course is the same training as a normal GWO BST but delivered as a blended model of learning where you familiarise yourself with essential knowledge based content in your own time, ahead of the practical training. This can help you get up to speed in advance, and make the most of the practical sessions. There are a number of other benefits such as saving you time and money.

The course is for personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields, and will carry out their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or offshore wind structure. 

Why the blended version of our GWO courses is a better deal

Completion of the e-learning modules, ahead of the onsite demonstration and practical sessions, provides a number of benefits:

  • A flexible and effective way to learn: Familiarise yourself with essential knowledge-based content in your own time, ahead of the practical classroom training. This can help you get up to speed in advance, and make the most of the practical sessions.
  • Cost and time savings: The blended version of course delivery reduces the time spent in the classroom, which in turn cuts down on overnight accommodation, travel, subsistence, as well as time away from your home or workplace.
  • Personalised learning: A well-structured, blended course allows you to absorb the content that you need, at a pace that suits you. This can allow you to make best use of your time, and focus on any gaps in your knowledge and understanding.
  • 24/7 access to resources: Learning can take place at a time and location that is most convenient for you. Access to the e-learning content is retained over the entire validity period of the GWO certification - typically 24 months.
  • Effective and efficient classrooms: As all participants will have completed the online e-learning modules and been assessed prior to the classroom training, you will all have the same level of understanding regarding the specific topics, making the classroom sessions more effective and efficient.

What it is GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) Blended Learning

A GWO Basic Safety Training Blended Learning course is for personnel who will be working in the wind industry or related fields, and will carry out their duties in a wind turbine environment, usually in physical contact with a wind turbine or offshore wind structure.

The aim of the BST is to 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 Height, Manual Handling, Fire Awareness, Sea Survival and in case of an emergency, the ability to evacuate, rescue and provide appropriate First Aid to casualties.

The blended learning courses and modules are designed in strict alignment with the GWO Standard, and have recently been certified by Bureau Veritas for delivery across our training centres in Denmark, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

How it works

The modules are based on a ‘flipped classroom’ approach, whereby participants have upfront access to their selected e-learning modules for up to 30 days prior to attendance of the associated onsite practical training.

The upfront, self-paced, e-learning covers the theoretical, knowledge and understanding components of the course, which would traditionally be delivered in a classroom by an instructor.
