GWO: Basic Technical Training

The GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) course is the standard for technical work in wind turbine generators. Tech Safety Lines offers our clients the premiere BTT experience with state of the art equipment and technical leadership.  Our BTT equipment, designed in Denmark, consists of 3 stands combining the full scope of all GWO BTT modules.

The BTT training curriculum will enable both onshore and offshore wind technicians to perform basic mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic tasks with the supervision of an experienced technician.  Not only will delegates gain awareness of the risks at hand while performing these tasks, they will learn to mitigate and control such hazards as well.

Please contact us for pricing and availability.

Consisting of 3 modules, Mechanical, Electrical, and Hydraulics, there are no prerequisites for this class other than a WINDA ID. This course can benefit entry level candidates as well as be offered for upskilling or gap training for experienced technicians as needed.

Upon completion, delegates will obtain the following skills in each module.
