Fixed Training Facility 8.2.1 A training location is considered to be a fixed training facility where a GWO-certified training provider performs regularly planned training using known equipment and facilities located in a permanent location, where the training provider’s risk management is supported by the permanent training environment. The fixed training facility setting must be audited for every module the training provider wishes to deliver in this setting.


A separate WINDA profile is created for each fixed training facility operated by a training provider. A training provider with several fixed training facilities may be audited by a different certification body at each fixed site. Special provisions apply for multi-sites as explained in the Requirements for Certification Bodies.

Mobile Training Facility 8.2.3

A mobile unit designed to be transported and to recreate a dedicated, controlled training environment at a new temporary location is considered as a mobile training facility. The mobile training facility setting must be audited for every module the training provider wishes to deliver in this setting. A new risk assessment must be carried out and documented for each new temporary location prior to training delivery. This risk assessment must consider the limitations of the mobile unit and describe mitigations. The risk assessment and mitigations must be signed off by at least one of the responsible instructors at each site before use.
