AIS Training has been approved by the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) to deliver its new slinger signaller standard.

AIS Training is one of the very first organisations worldwide to be accredited for the new standard, which was only introduced at the beginning of October 2019. Having been delivering rigger and banksman slinger industry-approved qualifications for the oil and gas sector for several years, AIS Training is extremely experienced in this area of training.

GWO’s new standard was created after a review of training certificates revealed hundreds of wind workers required slinger signaller qualifications. The two-day GWO Slinger Signaller course is wind-specific and provides a minimum standard to ensure safe lifting during manufacturing, installation and maintenance of wind turbines and their components wherever crane operations are necessary.

AIS Training is the UK’s largest GWO training provider. This course is the latest GWO standard added to its extensive portfolio, which now includes the full complement of GWO mandatory and specialist training.

All courses are delivered from the company’s Renewable Energy Training Centre of Excellence at its state-of-the-art 20-acre training village in North Tyneside.

Paul Knowles, Vice President UK and Europe of Training at AIS Training, said: “We are delighted to become one of the world’s first training providers to deliver the GWO’s new slinger signaller standard. Whilst this is a new skill for the wind industry, we have been delivering slinger banksman training for the oil and gas sector for many years and are highly experienced in this area. This course further enhances our existing capabilities and will provide awareness of the risks and hazards related to lifting operations across the wind industry - helping to raise standards.

“It is part of a drive by GWO for a more standardised approach to skills and competency training in the wind sector and reflects the industry’s focus on safety and project efficiency.”
