GWO Safety Training and Certification Programs, Courses and Assessments for the Wind Turbine Industry

global wind organisation gwo

Founded in 2012, Global Wind Organisation (GWO) is a non-profit body founded by wind turbine manufacturers and owners. GWO members strive for an injury free work environment in the wind turbine industry, setting common international standards for safety training and emergency procedures.

GWO training standards are courses that teach you to understand and reduce the risk associated with safety hazards in the wind turbine industry. This content is reviewed and updated by our committees including Training Committee, Audit & Compliance Committee, GWO North American Committee and GWO China Committee, to ensure a safe work environment for anyone working in the wind turbine industry.


Any individual with a GWO certificate in the Wind Industry Database (WINDA) is considered competent and knowledgeable according to the learning objectives of that standard. GWO members accept the certificate as confirmation the individual possesses the required knowledge and competences as described in the standard.

GWO also has developed a process to help you assess existing qualifications, training and curricula. 'Merit Assessment' gives you the tools and process to compare your courses with GWO standards (Gap Analysis). Your existing training can then be audited by a GWO-appointed certification body. By the end of the process, your training can be converted to a GWO certificate, with a record then uploaded into WINDA.
