This First Aid course is part of the Global Wind Organisation (GWO) training portfolio, which is specifically designed for those who work in the global wind and renewable energy industries.

This course provides delegates with the skills and knowledge they need to administer safe and effective first aid in onshore and offshore wind turbine environments. in accordance with legislative requirements and emergency response training requirements.

This course is part of our full 5 days Global Wind Organisation (GWO) Training Package – if you’d like to learn more about this course, contact us.

Due to the nature of the training course and the emphasis placed on communication, there is only a provision for the assessments to be undertaken in English. Therefore, candidates for this type of training must be able to understand and speak the English language. 

On this GWO First Aid course, delegates will learn the knowledge and practical skills they need to be confident first aiders at work, in a wind turbine environment.

On this course, delegates will learn the correct action to take in an emergency situation and how to perform basic life support (with a defibrillator). In addition to this, delegates will learn how to deal with choking, shock, seizures, bleeding and how to handle a casualty, both individually and as part of a team.

This course is a combination of lectures, demonstrations and practical tasks (i.e. demonstrating CPR using an AED). Learners are continually assessed during practical sessions.

After completing this course, delegates should be able to:

  • Demonstrate understanding of the importance of carrying out First Aid in a safe and sound manner in accordance with the legislative requirements of their geographic location and first aid guidelines
  • Identify and explain the normal function, normal signs, functions and symptoms of serious and minor injuries and illness related to the human body

Excellent and confident trainer with vast knowledge and experience. Answered every question we asked and found out the answers if they didn’t know.
William Roberts
Feedback from experienced candidates that MRS session on First Aid was the best they had attended. Connection with First Aid and incidents in the work-place excellent along with presentation skills.
Les Mack
Have attended many first aid at work courses over the years, the one provided by MRS is excellent. The real-life experiences shared on the course show this is not just held by a trainer but someone who is very experienced and understands how someone feels.
