(Total Level Hours: Volume 1: 197.5 Hours (includes 100 hours of Power Industry Fundamentals which is a prerequisite for Level 1completion and must be purchased separately.)


58101-11 Introduction to Wind Energy (15 Hours)

Introduces the fundamentals of generating electrical power from wind energy. A brief history of wind energy is included as

well as wind science, the interception of wind energy through a rotor, and an identification of major wind turbine generator



58102-11 Introduction to Wind Turbine Safety (12.5 Hours)

Introduces trainees to the unique safety concerns of working inside the wind turbine and in the wind farm environment.

Expands on earlier safety training and provides coverage of electrical arc flash safety.


58103-11 Climbing Wind Towers (40 Hours)

Covers all aspects of climbing wind turbine lattice towers and tubular towers. Includes coverage of proper climbing

equipment and equipment inspection, environmental hazards, proper climbing techniques, and common wind turbine safe

climbing guidelines.


26103-11 Introduction to Electrical Circuits (7.5 Hours; from Electrical Level One)

Offers a general introduction to the electrical concepts used in Ohm’s law applied to DC series circuits. Includes atomic theory,

electromotive force, resistance, and electric power equations.


26104-11 Electrical Theory (7.5 Hours; from Electrical Level One)

Introduces series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits. Covers resistive circuits, Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws, and

circuit analysis.


26112-11 Electrical Test Equipment (5 Hours; from Electrical Level One)

Focuses on proper selection, inspection, and use of common electrical test equipment, including voltage testers, clamp-on

ammeters, ohmmeters, multimeters, phase/motor rotation testers, and data recording equipment. Also covers safety

precautions and meter category ratings.


58104-11 Electrical Wiring (10 Hours)
