Basic Technical Training

Do you want to work in the wind energy industry? Then you need the GWO BTT – Basic Technical Training course.

The GWO’s official training course for technical work in wind turbines (BTT) is designed for people without previous experience in hydraulic, mechanical or electrical systems. However, people with experience in these fields can update and expand their knowledge in these areas, especially as applicable to wind turbines.

The BTT – Basic Technical Training course consists of five different modules dedicated to each of the technical systems used in wind turbines.

  • Mechanics Module.
  • Electricity Module.
  • Hydraulics Module.
  • Installation Module.
  • Bolt Tightening Module.

The validity of the BTT certificates is permanent. Upon completion of the course, participants will be familiar with the hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical systems of wind turbines and will be able to work in the wind industry both onshore and offshore.

To take the course, you must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • be in good physical and mental condition

The course lasts 54 hours (seven and a half days) and is conducted at GWO-accredited training centers.

Upon completing the course, you will receive a certificate that is valid indefinitely and allows you to work at any wind installation that follows the GWO standard.
