Safety instruction from staff, tutors, consultants and demonstrators must be rigorously observed.

Assessment
Assessment of all theory and practical courses delivered by CWind Training will be assessed by a trainer deemed competent based upon specific criteria.

Type of assessment
This course will be based upon a three tier assessment strategy; this involves the following assessment processes.
1. Trainer observations during the course, on-going assessment by the trainer of the delegate’s overall performance.
2. Key assessment criteria demonstrated – there are key criteria that need to be met for the delegate to pass the course, this is will be clearly explained to all delegates on the day.
3. Theory assessment – An end of course test consolidating and evidencing all learning will vary depending on course.

NB: This course is not attendance based and successful completion of all modules is required in order to pass.

Pass / Deferral
CWind Trainings aim is for all delegates to pass the course they attend, we do this by observing strict trainer-delegate ratios and using experienced trainers. However, if the trainer feels the delegate is falling short of course standards, they will identify issues with the individual and support them through the course. If there is no improvement the delegate will be deferred from the course with an agreed action plan written by the trainer for future guidance.
The delegate will be advised whether they have passed or deferred on the last day of the course. If the delegate is deferred, a conversation between trainer and delegate will take place as soon as the trainer identifies this. This decision will be made by the trainer/assessor and will be based upon the three tier assessment strategy.

If the delegate has been deferred, they have the right to appeal the decision, please contact us on 01245 703 000 or email traininginfo@cwind.global

NB: If the delegate is deferred from the course due to attitude, fitness or an inability to meet the required standards; the full course fee is non-refundable.

Certification
On successful completion of your course a GWO CWind Training certificate is emailed, within 5 working days, to the individual or company that booked your course. We will also update your course details on the WINDA database – This can take up to 2 weeks from the course completion date. If any certificate details are incorrect, please contact traininginfo@cwind.global
