All training performed according to the “GWO covid-19 guidance”
and the recommendations from the authorities. For further information, please read below covid-19 updates
All GWO training will continue
The government in Denmark has made several restrictions last week. However business certifications are not included and all GWO training at GWA in Denmark will continue, as planned.
Is it safe to participate in a GWO training?
March 2020, the GWO Organization changed the rules for running a GWO training. At GWA we are running the GWO according to the “GWO covid-19 guidance”, guidance where contact between the participants is not allowed. E.g. the rescue exercises in the Working at Height module is made with dolls.
Do you have attention on the covid-19 restrictions at GWA?
At GWA we have had highest possible focus on a safety training, and all recommendations from the government related to cleaning, distance required, hand rubbing alcohol and information for the participants have been provided. For access to the GWA training facilities, the ”Visitor declaration 20201117” is required.
GWO Refresher training up to 60 days after ordinary expiry, is it still valid?
March 2020, the GWO Organization offered all GWO BST Holders 60 days extra validation. This rule has been sharpened per 01.01.2021:
The temporary measure to allow attendance to refresher training up to 60 days after ordinary expiry of previous training will be extended until 30 June 2021, with two clarifications:
a) that using this measure requires proof of cancellation of a planned training within normal expiry (to be documented by course participants prior to training to the training provider)
b) that any refresher training taken using this exemption must be completed no later than 30.06.2021.
For further specifications from GWO
Global Wind Academy closely follows developments around covid-19, nationally and internationally.
Global Wind Academy has decided to relax the requirements for access to our training centers in Struer and Holstebro.
The relief applies to those persons who have left and return to DK to participate in GWO training. To access our facilities, for this group, it is no longer a requirement but a recommendation that the student can present a negative covid-19 test not older than 72 hours.
These conditions are described in our updated and attached "Visitor declaration 20201117".
Global Wind Academy has decided to tighten the requirements
Global Wind Academy has decided to tighten the requirements for access to our training centers in Struer and Holstebro. The tightening applies to those people who have left and return to DK to participate in GWO training. To access our facilities, for this group, it must be possible to present a negative covid-19 test that is not older than 72 hours.
These matters are described in our updated and attached "Visitor declaration".
We apologize if this gives extra inconvenience in relation to your upcoming bookings, but we assume this is in line with your own company policy and there is probably also broad agreement that the safety and health of our employees are given the highest priority.
Reduce the risk of Corona spread
The government in Denmark has decided to increase all possible actions in Denmark in order to reduce the risk of Corona spread.
E.g. they recommend that no more than 100 persons are allowed to be unified at the same indoor location.
However, the government also stated that the Danish society, companies in Denmark shall continue business activities.
At Global Wind Academy and at UCH the impact are:
All GWO Safety training at Global Wind Academy will run as planned.
