GWO Fire Awareness Training / Fire Awareness Refresher Course

Our expertly-delivered GWO Fire Awareness training course is aimed at personnel who work in the wind industry or related fields and will have their duties in a wind turbine environment. Usually, this means they will be in physical contact with a wind turbine or an offshore wind structure. The GWO Fire Awareness Refresher module covers the same content, duration and learning objectives as our standard fire awareness course, so it’s open to first-time delegates and refresher delegates. No matter your experience, you’re guaranteed to get a first-class education in offshore fire safety.

The GWO Fire Awareness course is presented by our in-house team of CWind Training instructors. All of our instructors have real-world experience in the offshore wind industry and are adept at providing fire safety to individual trainees and businesses across the world.

In order to take part in this GWO course, you must provide proof of an up to date GWO certificate. If you have any questions or queries about our range of GWO-approved courses, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team!

Summary:

The aim of the GWO Fire Awareness training course is to give trainees the basic knowledge and skills to prevent fires, make appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage the evacuation of personnel and ensure all are safely accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire. If the incident is judged to be safe enough, the delegates should be able to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic handheld fire fighting equipment.

The course is delivered over one day, with segmented time slots to cover all of the essential elements of fire safety training. Sessions are delivered at our state-of-the-art training facilities throughout the year, but we also conduct bespoke courses that can be delivered at your site.
