Training facilities around the globe
SIEMENS – Siemens has a total of four global wind service training facilities in Denmark, Germany, the UK and the U.S. for the special training of offshore service technicians. All four locations have received certification from the Global Wind Organization (GWO) for their offshore safety training. These facilities are equipped with full-size turbine components, climbing towers, classrooms, and other apparatus needed to mimic real-live conditions. This gives each Siemens technician the hands-on training to be prepared for later deployment.
It takes a special kind of individual to perform offshore wind service. The job requires advanced technical and classroom training and expertise as well as comprehensive safety training. This requires superior physical endurance and stamina, since they must be prepared for conditions that can change at a moment’s notice. The sea can be as unpredictable as the skies, and everyone has to be prepared. You cannot afford to be afraid of heights or be prone to seasickness. more> http://tinyurl.com/ow7rv9u
