GWO: Advanced Rescue Training
The Advanced Rescue Training (ART) modules designed by the Global Wind Organization (GWO) mitigates risk and ensures a more efficient rescue operation from a wind turbine. The training provides the tools to elevate a rescuer’s self-reliance and enables successful transport of a colleague who cannot self-evacuate.
Exclusively offered by Tech Safety Lines (TSL), participants will learn to use TSL’s patented rescue equipment, the SRK-11 and SPARK. This is the only GWO ART class in the United States where students also receive a TSL certification authorizing use of our premier rescue equipment in the field.
Utilizing both theoretical and practical exercises, participants will learn how to deploy multiple rescues at height both independently and in group settings. The ART course includes the following modules:
- GWO ART – Hub, Spinner, Inside Blade Rescue
- GWO ART – Nacelle, Tower, & Basement Rescue
- GWO ART – Single Rescuer: Hub, Spinner, Inside Blade Rescue
- GWO ART – Single Rescuer: Nacelle, Tower, & Basement Rescue
