Description of the course
Target group
The Basic Technical Training Bolt tightening module are targeted at candidates who have no previous experience of working with energy powered bolt tightening, but may also be used to upskill candidates who have some knowledge but not of its application in wind turbines.
Course Aims and Objective
The aim of this module is to prepare participants for company specific bolt tightening training, through scenario-based training.

After having successfully completed the BTT Bolt Tightening Course, participants will have the:
1) Act independently to safely plan, carryout and complete generic bolt torquing and tensioning tasks to specification using energy powered equipment (Ability, intermediate level).

GWO BTT BOLT TIGHTENING Course is approved by Global Wind Organisation (GWO).
