Course Benefits

The Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) is targeted at candidates who have no previous experience of hydraulic, mechanical or electrical systems, but may also be used to up-skill delegates who have some knowledge of these areas in other industries.

The aim of the GWO Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) is to give the participants the knowledge and skills to carry out basic maintenance tasks, whilst supervised by an experienced technician, using safe working procedures and the correct PPE.

Upon completion of the GWO Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) delegates will possess an awareness of hydraulic, mechanical and electrical systems, preparing candidates for working both on and offshore in the wind power industry.

  • Hydraulics 2 days
  • Mechanical 2 days
