Windhoist Training Courses

We have used the experience and expertise we have gathered working in the wind and construction industries to create a range of  GWO and RUK approved training courses. These have been designed to pass on our knowledge of working at height, carrying out rescues at height and health and safety procedures.

All of these courses are delivered from our new world class training centre in Irvine, Scotland.
