Maersk Training ( UK) has announced that it has entered a global partnership with Bristol Community College’s National Offshore Wind Institute (NOWI) in Massachusetts, USA. The collaboration is the next step in securing Bristol’s National Offshore Wind Institute provider of basic safety training and basic technical training programs certified by the Global Wind Organization (GWO).
NOWI’s basic safety training modules include the areas of first aid, manual handling, fire awareness, working at heights and sea survival, whereas the basic technical training courses focus on hydraulics, mechanical and electrical concepts regarding offshore wind. The partnership will establish the skills development training portion of NOWI and develop new GWO courses offered by Bristol Community College that are currently tailored to in-demand industry skills and knowledge.
