The Industry Standard for
Training Excellence in Wind Energy

Working On Quality Standards

BZEE develops certified industry-relevant training courses with a high level of practical content for the wind energy sector. An advisory board made up of industry players determines the contents and high quality standards of the courses. The corresponding BZEE certificates, which are seen as an important sign of quality in the sector, ensure training complies with these high standards.

All BZEE training providers are certified and meet the strict BZEE training provider criteria. Specially designed training courses for instructors ensure that BZEE quality standards are maintained worldwide. Additionally, training providers are audited on a regular basis to ensure they always comply with BZEE standards.

BZEE training courses focus on practical training on real turbines, as favored by the industry, setting them apart from the many classroom-based courses on the market. In close cooperation with the industry, the BZEE global network has trained more people to be wind turbine technicians than any other organization.
