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.
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.
Completion of the e-learning modules, ahead of the onsite demonstration and practical sessions, provides a number of benefits:
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.
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.
GWO BST is available through our training centres in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.
Please note: The e-Learning modules are currently available in English only.
