This GWO Advanced Rescue Training course provides practical training in hub, blade, basement and restricted areas in the nacelle rescues both as a team and solo rescuer.
The training includes the use of powered rescue devices for lifting casualties up the WTG to the roof platform.
The course is 3 days duration and includes the following modules trained as team participation rescues during the course:
- Team – Nacelle, tower & basement rescue
- Team – Hub, spinner & inside blade rescue
The GWO also identifies that sometimes teams of two persons may be working together without external assistance and therefore the training course also requires these rescues to be done with a solo rescuer giving the following modules:
- Single rescuer – hub, spinner & inside blade
- Single rescuer – nacelle, tower, basement
The training is mainly practical and covers a variety of techniques to allow people to be rescued from the many awkward and restricted places within the turbine. The use of powered CRD’s is a key component in the training to assist casualty’s out of the basement and up to the roof of wind turbines that require helicopter transfers rather than vessel or vehicle.
Safety footwear required for all practical sessions.
- GWO BST module Working at Heights
- GWO First Aid & Manual Handling
The GWO Advanced Rescue Training for Wind Turbines certificate is valid for two years. After this, a revalidation of the course will be required. Please see GWO Advanced Rescue Techniques – Revalidation. The 3 day revalidation course also revalidates the GWO Working at Heights certification along with the team Advanced Rescues. It doesn’t cover the solo rescuer modules as revalidation for these modules is not required.
