A new wind training center in Maryland (USA) that supports both the offshore wind and Land based industries is open for business after receiving approval from the Global Wind Organization (GWO). The new purpose-built center has been developed by Arcon Training Center, along with the UK’s wind trainer, AIS Training – part of the 3T Energy Group - to support the offshore and onshore wind industry in the USA.
Located at Arcon’s existing training facility in Salisbury, Maryland, USA, the center passed the GWO audit process and is now approved to offer GWO Basic Safety Training. As well as delivering GWO Working at Height, GWO Manual Handling, GWO Fire Awareness and GWO First Aid, ARCON will offer GWO Sea Survival courses in a short time. Sea survival is the added module required for personnel working offshore. The training facility incorporates a 24-foot high training tower, climbing and rescue platforms and an open area for manual handling training, a fire awareness training structure and area, as well as newly equipped classrooms, office space and communal areas.
