Course description

Target Group:

The Basic Technical Training modules are targeted at candidates who have

no previous experience of hydraulic, mechanical or electrical systems but may

also be used to up skill candidates who have some knowledge of these areas

in other spheres not specifically wind turbines. Upon completion of the full

GWO Basic Technical Training (BTT) Delegates will possess an awareness of

hydraulic, mechanical and electrical systems, preparing candidates for

working both on and offshore in the wind power industry.


Course objective:

The aim of this BTT Hydraulic Module is to give the Delegates the knowledge

and skills to carry out basic hydraulics tasks (supervised by an experienced

technician) using safe working procedures and the correct PPE.

The BTT Hydraulic Module shall ensure Delegates are able to:

● Explain the basics of hydraulics

● Explain risks and hazards associated with hydraulic work

● Explain the function of different types of pumps and demonstrate how to

check start/stop pressure of a pump

● Explain the function of different types of actuators.

● Explain the function of different types of valves.

● Explain the function of accumulators and demonstrate how to check and

pre-charge them.

● Explain the function of different types of sensors.

● Identify the components which transfer the oil.

● Describe the handling of oil procedures.

● Identify and find different components on a hydraulic diagram.

● Demonstrate how to measure the hydraulic pressure accurately.



The GWO BTT Hydraulic Module is one out of three standalone qualifications

which together form the full GWO Basic Technical Training. BTT modules can

be taken independently and in any order you wish. It is however highly

recommended that the mechanical module is taken as the first module.


The content of the BTT Hydraulic Module is:

● Introduction

● Introduction to Hydraulic

● Safety during work in the field of power hydraulics

● Hydraulic elements in the turbine

● Operating principles of hydraulic systems using hydraulic pumps and


● The functions of hydraulic systems in a turbine

● Theoretical test


Qualifications obtained:

GWO BTT Module III Hydraulic Certificate


Extension of validity:




There are no prerequisites for this module but some sort of practical

mechanical or electrical maintenance background would be useful.
