Course description

Course Duration

Online theory (approx. 3-4 hours)  + 4 hours practical at VTC

Registration in the WINDA database and obtaining the WINDA ID

Course Validity Indefinitely


Finish the theory at home and come to the Center only for the practical part.

The online component of the course will provide you with the prerequisite knowledge and awareness required before participating in the onsite practical sessions.


  1. Create an Account on our website.
  2. Login and select your desire module/s and practical date from calendar.
  3. You will receive confirmation of booking and access to online teaching material (course video, handouts etc.)
  4. Read course handouts and watch videos and complete an online assessment after each modules.
  5. Complete all the modules and online assessments before your schedule practical days (online theory and practical must be completed within 28 days)
  6. Upon arrival to our center, our instructor will check you knowledge by a written and/or oral assessment. (delegate/s will not be able to participate in practical part if they do not pass the assessment)


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 accumulators

● 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.
