GWO Basic Technical Training Mechanical Module

The GWO BTT Mechanical module is one out of three standalone qualifications which together form the full GWO Basic Technical Training. BTT modules can be taken independently and in any order you wish. It is however highly recommended that the mechanical module is taken as the first module. Upon completion of the full GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) Delegates will possess an awareness of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems, preparing candidates for working both on and offshore in the wind power industry. At least 70% of the questions in the written test must be answered correctly in order to pass the test.
