GWO Enhanced First Aid Refresher (EFAR)

GWO Enhanced First Aid Refresher (EFAR) is part of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) course portfolio, which sets the standard for training in the global wind and renewable energy industry.

The standard has been developed in response to the demand for recognisable Enhanced First Aid (EFA) training in the wind industry.

AIS Training is the UK's number one provider of wind industry training, offering a comprehensive portfolio of mandatory and specialist GWO courses >>

Industry experienced instructors deliver courses in a state-of-the-art wind and renewables excellence centre which provides a realistic training environment, and accomodates personnel working both onshore and offshore.
