Companies are already contacting us to book technicians onto GWO training courses and to ask for support for their own training facilities once lockdown is relaxed. The GWO have been great through the extension of refresher deadlines, offering 60 days grace to anyone who’s certs may have lapsed over the last couple of months. However, this means a huge number of technicians will require urgent training from mid-May onwards.
In order to meet this demand and ensure that we can train everyone who needs a course we have created a roster to manage course place allocation. Technicians will be allocated a training spot that ensures their certifications remain valid.
What this means is that training courses are likely to made up of groups from different companies as we work through this backlog.
