GWO Requirements for Training Providers V12

GWO Requirements for Training Providers


‘Mobile training facilities’ may be registered on WINDA using a training provider’s permanent address as one WINDA profile citing the training provider’s permanent office address. Mobile training facilities’ training records shall be identified separately during uploading to the shared WINDA profile. A training provider may have several mobile training facilities provided these are all audited by a certification body. Special provisions apply for multi-sites as explained in the Requirements for Certification Bodies On-site training is when training takes place in the field (example locally available wind turbines). In these cases, a portion of the training can also be delivered in a location such as a small service centre, office environment, or similar, but certification for that location as a fixed training facility is not required. ‘On-site training’ also includes when training takes place at a location that is not the training providers’ own GWO audited training environment. If a training provider delivers on-site training repeatedly during a 12-month period at a facility (that could be certified as a GWO fixed training facility) it must be converted to a GWO Fixed Training fixed training facility. Risk and quality management are key when training on site (in the field), meaning GWO requirements will explicitly focus on these areas. To receive an audit and the approval to conduct GWO training in an on-site environment, the training provider must: 1) Already operate one or more GWO-certified fixed and/or mobile training facilities that can support ongoing instructor qualification in accordance with these requirements, and 2) A risk assessment and control measures document must be created prior to each training delivery. This risk assessment must consider the limitations of the location used for on-site (field) training and describe mitigations. The risk assessment must take into consideration local risk factors on the day of training (including, but not limited to) weather and safe evacuation procedures. Further, it must testify that the equipment and locations are safe and functional, as well as being compliant with the requirements for the applicable training standard module. The document must carry the signature of at least two competent persons, usually one of the instructors and a person representing the legal owner of the on-site structure, prior to training delivery. Between audits, the training provider may deliver training at several sites. All records including the location-specific risk assessments associated with each training delivery shall be kept and a representative sample of records shall be reviewed by the auditor during re-certification. If approved for on-site (field) training, the training provider shall use the WINDA profile associated with the fixed training facility or mobile training facility that is used as the basis for supporting on- site training delivery.
