Course description

Course Duration

Online theory (approx. 10-12 hours)  + 1 day 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 Mechanical Module is to give the Delegates the knowledge and skills to carry out basic mechanical tasks (supervised by an experienced technician) using safe working procedures and the correct PPE.


The BTT Mechanical Module shall ensure Delegates are able to:

● Explain the main components, mechanical systems and the basic operation of wind turbines.

● Explain risks and hazards associated with mechanics.

● Understand the principles of bolted and welded connections and theirinspect ion.

● Demonstrate practical skills to use manual tightening and measuring tools.

● Demonstrate the correct use of hydraulic torque and tensioning tools.

● Explain the principles of a gearbox.

● Explain the function of the brake systems and demonstrate how to inspect them.

● Explain the function of the yaw system and explain how to inspect it.

● Explain the function of the cooling system and demonstrate how to inspect it.

● Explain the function of the lubrication system and demonstrate how to inspect it.



The GWO BTT Mechanical 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 Mechanical module is:

● Introduction

● Introduction to Mechanical

● Mechanical Safety

● Mechanical Components

● Principles of a gearbox

● Function of the brake, yaw, lubrication and cooling systems

● Theoretical test


Qualifications obtained:

GWO BTT Module 1 Mechanical Certificate

 Please note that certain companies may require specific or additional certification to meet their internal competency requirements. Vulcan Training strongly advises to check the competency/training requirements with your operator prior to booking the course with Vulcan. Vulcan can advise on general certification required in specific geographic regions,  but there may be additional training requirements according to local or company internal guidelines.

Extension of validity:




There are no prerequisites for this module but some sort of practical mechanical or electrical maintenance background would be useful.
