GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) for personnel Working on Wind Tunnel Generators in the Wind Industry

gwo btt

The GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) program has been developed in response to the demand for recognizable Basic Technical Training (BTT) in the industry and has been prepared in co-operation between the members of GWO based on risk assessments and factual incident and accident statistics pertaining to the installation, service and maintenance of wind turbine generators and wind power plants.

Upon completion of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Basic Technical Training (BTT), participants will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working on hydraulic, mechanical, electrical and installation systems, and how to control and mitigate these hazards, preparing candidates for working both on and offshore in the wind power industry.


The Basic Technical Training modules are targeted at candidates who have no previous experience of hydraulic, mechanical, electrical or installation systems, but may also be used to upskill candidates who have some knowledge but not of its application in wind turbines.

These training modules are delivered independently of one another or as stand-alone training. The installation module is not part of the mandatory BTT training, and it is up to the duty holder to decide if this should be mandatory training.

  • Duration: 32 hours (4 days)
  • Validity: None
  • Prerequisites: There is only a prerequisite to attend the Installation module, hence, the participant must have completed the Mechanical module before attending the Installation training. There are no prerequisites for the remaining modules, but some sort of practical mechanical or electrical maintenance background would be useful.
