Getting Into Wind

The Industry & Entry Points


Wind is a fast growing sector, with a 33% rise in recruitment by 2026 needed to meet the job demand in the industry.


However, it can seem like a steep slope to actually getting into the industry, with many different routes, qualifications, and jargon to shift through to find the answer.

It’s true that there are different routes, as the industry is wide and varied with common jobs including composite blade repair, electrical maintenance, gearbox servicing, and many more. While having experience in these areas can help, there are ways to get into the industry with little to no experience.

  • Anybody who wants to work on wind turbines will require Basic Safety Training courses accredited by the Global Wind Organisation (more commonly known as GWO). The Basic Safety Training consists of 4 courses, or 5 if you want to work offshore, which are Working at Height, Manual Handling, First Aid, and Fire Awareness, and Sea Survival if you wish to work offshore.

  • In addition to this, there are a variety of technical and more advanced GWO courses if you have less experience or want to stand out more.


If you want to find out more about the GWO courses Safer at Work can offer you, look at our courses below, or contact one of our friendly team.
