We've just introduced a new Easy Train system, its free and is designed to get you the best prices on all types of training, give it a try when you need your courses - it'll probably save you a decent amount:
wind energy is an ever expanding market and it makes good sense to get into it reasonably early - there is a lot of investment going into this all over the world. Altitec or Maersk are both top trainers. Repair side of the market is always looking for people.
My name is Karl Baxendale
I am looking to try and get some relevant information on becoming a wind turbine blade repair/inspection technician. I'm still tied up in my military contract up until August in the time up until then ill be trying to do as many courses and earn as many tickets as I can. I have recently undergone my level 1 rope access course and was contemplating on taking the siemens b blade repair course but after recently making an enquiry on the telephone speaking to a gentleman who deals with enquiries I came to learn that for me to be placed on the course I will need a company to pay for it basically i need a VAT no which I don't have. My 2nd choice is going through Altitec or Maersk, is there anyone that has knowledge or experience of training with either one and if so will the training I will undertake to be excepted on most wind turbines?a
Someone coming from no experience as of yet but holding the right tickets etc will this be good enough and if so is there plenty of work out there as I see a lot of times through another social networking site that there is a lot of wind turbine technicians out of work.
I'm positive that if i have the right attitude and patience it will all come together but obviously, advice and recommendations will always be welcomed
