New Training Opportunity: Wind Turbine Operator Course

Earlier we told you that we had taken delivery of loads of new kit for the wind turbine operator course. But what is the Wind Turbine Operator course?

The Wind Turbine Operator course is a brand new 2 day working at height course that has been specifically designed for wind turbine technicians and installers. LessCO~2 Limited has developed the course with Rescue 3 Europe, as an internationally certified training program to promote best practice health and safety working standards. Currently LessCO~2 Limited is the only UK based provider; however there are others in Europe where the course is successful.

The course is a unique working at height course that uses LessCO~2 Limited’s live turbine sites across the UK to ensure realistic training scenarios. The WTO course takes in a range of techniques for turbine access and rescue situations that may arise when working on a turbine, whilst promoting best working practise for turbine operators.

The course is taught in small groups of 4-6 under the experienced instruction of course instructor Matt. This means you get the individual assistance and instruction you require to ensure you come away from the course fully prepared. We also have a fantastic selection of new and specialist kit for exclusive use of course participants.

The next course is on August 26th-27th 2013 in Staffordshire, and costs £350 which includes all training, equipment hire, course manual, refreshments and Rescue 3 certification and ID as well as a Rescue 3 whistle and tag-out kit. If you would like more information about the course check out our training pages or contact the training department here.

We have a range of turbine sites across the UK meaning that we may be able to host a training course nearer to where you are based to reduce your travelling costs. We are also able to arrange a course specifically for your wind turbine operator team if you require an individual course. As a pre-requisite of the course is a valid first aid certificate, we can offer first aid training as part of a 3 day version of the course inclusive of a first aid course to ensure you meet this requirement. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs and help us tailor a package to suit you.
