CWind Training to deliver first-ever Global Wind Organisation online course

We are delighted to announce that, as of Wednesday 29th July 2020, CWind Training will become one of only three UK-based training providers to deliver an online Global Wind Organisation (GWO) refresher course.

The new Basic Safety Training Online Partial Refresher (BSTR-P) course has been created by the GWO to enable technicians currently working on site to carry out important refresher training without having to travel to a training centre.

Due to the recent widespread closure of UK training centres, course places are now in high demand, and with many technicians also busy working on vital infrastructure projects, the risk of technician skill fade is a reality for many companies and individuals.

As a result, the GWO has recently made a number of key adaptations to the refresher course to make it easier for technicians to access the course materials and complete assessments online, such as replacing the working at height skill demonstration with a knowledge-based exercise that can be completed online.


CWind Training will deliver the refresher course as an online webinar. The two-day course consists of five core modules:

  1. First Aid
  2. Manual Handling
  3. Fire Awareness
  4. Working at Height
  5. Sea Survival

As well as benefiting from access to CWind Training’s experienced team, delegates will also receive a six-month extension to their Basic Safety Training certification upon passing the online course.

Although course availability is limited and demand is incredibly high, we have places available for courses taking place from Tuesday 28th July 2020.

In order to take part in this course, delegates must satisfy several pre-requisites and have specific equipment available to complete the course.
