GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) Combined

GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) Combined is part of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) course portfolio, which sets the standards for training in the global wind energy and renewables industry.

AIS Training is the UK's number one provider of wind industry training, offering a comprehensive portfolio of 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.


Course Overview

The GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) standard came into effect on March 31, 2018 and replaced many of the GWO members’ own training courses either fully or partially. You can read the basic technical training standard here.

GWO BTT is an entry level course that enables delegates to perform basic hydraulic, mechanical and electrical tasks in a wind turbine environment under the supervision of an experienced technician.

Book this combined GWO BTT package and Save £145 in comparison to buying each element individually.


PLEASE NOTE: If you already have pre-existing basic technical training or experience, you may be able to complete GWO BBT Merit Gap Training to meet GWO standards.
