Maersk Training in Esbjerg has conducted the first Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) course with attendees from MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
The first Basic Maintenance Training (BMT) was carried out in late November, after Maersk Training in Esbjerg became the first Global Wind Organisation (GWO) certified training centre in the world to be approved to deliver the course.
The participants provided valuable feedback to the instructor in order to optimise the learning experience and competences gained in each of the course modules. “The participants were highly competent and contributed with a lot of industry-specific knowledge. It is always a pleasure to teach and engage in technical and professional discussions. By analysing and actively using this knowledge, I will be able to deliver a better learning experience to our customers,” said Maciej Klimaszewski, BMT-instructor at Maersk Training in Esbjerg.
The GWO BMT course is targeted entry level candidates in hydraulic, mechanical or electrical systems. The course may also be used to up-skill delegates who have some knowledge of these areas in other industries, according to Maersk Training.
“Utilizing a GWO approved standard as baseline opens up new possibilities for us,” said Jakob Bjørn Nielsen, Head of Training & Development at MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
“We welcome standardised training and see it as a necessity for the wind industry. The different stakeholders in the industry are all benefiting from standardised training and the associated cost savings,” said Peter Harbo, Sales Manager at Maersk Training in Esbjerg.
