GWO Training Courses

June 18, 2020

Boston Energy have been training internal contractors as well as external customers on lifting and crane operations for many years. As of June 2019, we also provide onshore GWO courses at our training centre in East Yorkshire. The trainers we employ have an extensive amount of experience and expertise in wind turbine and crane operations, ensuring all courses conform to current standards and provide trainees with valuable knowledge to help them in their careers.

We have recently re-opened our training centre, after closing as a result of COVID-19. As always, health & safety is our priority and therefore we have put in place a variety of measures to ensure that all our courses are safe and adhere to government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. This includes limited course numbers, PPE provision and the isolation of all training from our main building.

We are also excited to announce that we have widened our scope further and are now approved to deliver GWO Slinger Signaller training. This is an in-depth, 2 day course, carefully planned to prepare you for all lifting scenarios you may face whilst working on a wind turbine.

Other courses we offer include:

  • GWO Working At Height
  • GWO Manual Handling
  • GWO Fire Awareness
  • GWO First Aid

We provide both initial and refresher courses in accordance with Global Wind Organisation (GWO) standards, and also offer a 10% package discount when the above listed GWO courses are bought together.

All courses can be bought via our online store –
