About the event

With finalists coming from GWO certified safety training providers on every continent, the first ever awards were designed to highlight the excellence found throughout the GWO training network. By entering one of the seven Training Team of the Year categories safety training providers amply showed how they were adapting to the challenges of training in the pandemic and other best practices. Judged by a panel of 11 industry experts, competition was tough.

“It was a real pleasure to celebrate the very best our network of training providers has to offer at the GWO Safety & Training Awards 2021. The standard amongst the finalists was extremely high and we were thrilled to have so many at the ceremony in Copenhagen, traveling as they did from countries like Brazil, South Africa, Australia and from across Europe. The awards programme was designed to shine a light on the instructors and teams of professionals from GWO training providers who go beyond the norm and I am confident we achieved this objective.”

- Jakob Lau Holst, CEO of Global Wind Organisation
