US Offshore Wind Training

Global Wind Organisation


Massachusetts Maritime Academy, in cooperation with Relyon Nutec, is pleased to offer the globally recognized GWO Basic Safety Training at its Buzzards Bay campus.  This is the first facility in the nation to offer all five modules of GWO Basic Safety Training for Offshore Wind.

Upon completion of the GWO Basic Safety Training (BST) delegates will possess an awareness of the hazards encountered when working within the wind industry and how to control and mitigate against these hazards. 

The BST will also equip participants with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to appropriately respond in the event of an emergency. They will also be able to increase their safety through proper use of personal protective equipment, emergency equipment, and procedures. 

Our Basic Safety Training program is now being delivered in blended learning format, reducing the amount of in person training to three days for all five modules of training.

Students will receive a link shortly after registration which will direct them to the lecture portion of the course(s).  Students must complete the online training NO MORE THAN 30 days prior to the start of the course and NO LESS THAN 3 days prior to the start of the course in order to be eligible to attend in person training.  A certificate of completion of the online portion will be provided to the student to bring to the in person learning sessions.
