GWO Fire Awareness Refresher


GWO accreditations should be renewed every 2 years. Refresher courses are only available to candidates who are already in possession of a valid, in-date certificate for the course they wish to refresh.

The GWO Fire Safety Refresher module covers all of the practical and theory skills of the full module to ensure that knowledge of the individual is up-to-date.

This course will provide delegates with the basic knowledge and skills to prevent fires, conduct initial and appropriate judgement when evaluating a fire, manage evacuation of personnel to ensure all are safely evacuated and accounted for in the event of an unmanageable fire and, if it’s safe, to efficiently extinguish an initial fire by using basic handheld firefighting equipment.

Prior to completing this course, delegates will complete a medical assessment form to screen any medical issues they may have.

Delegates must be aged 18+ and should have a good level of English. Assessment for the GWO Basic Safety Training Package will consist of a practical and written multiple choice assessment.

The course covers techniques and procedures which may need to be carried out in emergency situations which involve dealing with fires. The training deals with fire situations in various environments and ensures individuals are taught the importance of following procedure and regulations whilst working in these hazardous environments within the renewable energy industry.

Our center is fully equipped with real world training environments designed to make sure you are aware of emergency procedures if confronted with situations involving fire.
