Advanced Rescue Training - Warsaw and entire Poland 

The training course (ART) Advanced Rescue Training - Advanced Evacuation Rescue is dedicated to wind turbine workers.

Ośrodek Szkolenia Operatorów OSO invites you to the course Advanced Rescue Training. The course is designed to familiarise trainees with the procedure for rescue action in a wind turbine, which includes sections such as the inside of the blade, rotor, nacelle, basement, tower and hub. The training rescue operation uses standard equipment, methods and rescue techniques that go beyond those discussed in the working at height module. Students train in rescue both in teams and individually. 

Wind Turbines

The training is dedicated to workers performing duties at height, especially on wind turbines, and to those who have been designated to take part in advanced rescue operations. 

The OSO training centre fully complies with GWO standards, ensuring a high level of training. The theoretical and practical knowledge acquired will enable you to effectively evacuate and apply rescue techniques in an emergency situation, maintaining safety standards, according to the guidelines of the Advanced Rescue Training. 

At our centre, we offer the opportunity to gain competence and knowledge under the guidance of experts in the field. Our courses Advanced Rescue Training cover the entire country - both at our headquarters in Warsaw and in our field branches, as well as in the form of open and closed training courses. Choosing to take part in a course Advanced Rescue Training, you can count on attractive financial terms. 

Purpose of the training

Advanced Rescue Training (ART) - Advanced Evacuation Rescue 

The primary objective of the training Advanced Rescue Training - Advanced Evacuation Rescue organised by the OSO Training Centre is to familiarise participants with advanced evacuation and rescue techniques from the wind turbine area.

Course participants in class


Training Advanced Rescue Training (ART) includes theoretical and practical classes. The participant will learn a range of evacuation procedures adapted to the specifics of the evacuation site and the number of people involved.   

The training modules have been carefully designed so that participants can cope with both group and individual evacuations. Realistic practical exercises are carried out using high-quality evacuation equipment used on a daily basis in the wind turbine area.  

The training consists of several modules: 

ART-N Nacelle, Tower and Basement Rescue (NTBR) The module lasts 2 days and includes: 

  • legal issues related to advanced emergency operations; 
  • rescue strategies - including the use of appropriate techniques and equipment by suitably qualified personnel; 
  • procedures for evacuating an injured person from the nacelle, tower and basement of a wind turbine; 
  • simulations and training exercises in rescue operations; 

ART-H Hub, Spinner and Inside Blade Rescue (HSIBR) The module lasts 1 day and includes: 

  • legal issues related to advanced rescue operations, rescue strategies (determination of the correct rescue method, use of appropriate technique and equipment by and for appropriately qualified personnel); 
  • procedures for the evacuation of an injured person from a wind turbine tower (WTG), both outside and inside its structure; 
  • selection of approved and design anchor points; 
  • simulations and training exercises in rescue operations; 

SAT-N Single Rescuer: Nacelle, Tower and Basement Rescue (SR:NTBR) The module lasts 1 day and includes: 

  • the precise selection of the rescue method, the intervention technique, the use of certified equipment and the effective organisation of the rescue action at the scene by the individual rescuer. All this in the context of varied rescue scenarios; 
  • implementing rescue methodologies and techniques during the descent and ascent of an individual rescuer from a WTG structure; 
  • supported by an emergency stretcher and an orthopaedic board, including manual manoeuvring as well as the use of a mechanical rescue system for lowering/lifting; 
  • appropriate use of specialised rescue equipment; 

For students who have completed the ART-N Nacelle, Tower and Basement Rescue (NTBR) module. 

SAT-H Single Rescuer: Hub, Spinner and Inside Blade Rescue (SR:HSIBR) The module lasts 1 day and includes: 

  • Analyse and determine the individual rescuer's strategy (including appropriate intervention methods, techniques, certified equipment and how to organise rescue operations and site management) for varied rescue scenarios; 
  • the application of rescue techniques and methods during the descent and ascent of an individual rescuer from a wind turbine structure, using a specialised rescue stretcher and orthopaedic board; 
  • operation of manual and mechanical lowering and lifting rescue systems (including pulley or related rescue devices), and other dedicated rescue equipment; 

For students who have completed the ART-H Hub, Spinner and Inside Blade Rescue (HSIBR) module. 

The course is designed to develop correct and safe habits in participants in accordance with GWO guidelines Advanced Rescue Training (ART). 

At the end of the course, the participant will have acquired knowledge in:  

  • the analysis and development of rescue strategies, including the correct choice of rescue methods, techniques, certified equipment and appropriate personnel, adapted to a variety of rescue scenarios; 
  • assessing and developing evacuation strategies during rescue operations, including the precise determination of the best evacuation routes for injured persons, both outside and inside the wind turbine tower; 
  • identify and properly select anchor points that meet certification criteria and structural requirements, suitable for different rescue scenarios; 
  • understanding and practical application of concepts such as angle of lift, angle factor and deflection, which are crucial during rescue operations; 
  • responding effectively to common hazards associated with hazardous energy sources and the hazards present in confined spaces inside a wind turbine during rescue operations; 
  • The practical application of various rescue methods and techniques during descent and ascent operations from the wind turbine hub area, turntable and blade interior. Rescue stretchers, orthopaedic boards, manual lowering/lifting systems as well as other specialised rescue equipment such as pulley systems are used; 
  • the precise donning of harnesses and other personal protective equipment, such as helmets or goggles, on victims in confined spaces inside a wind turbine tower; 
  • Safely place casualties on rescue stretchers and orthopaedic boards in an upright or horizontal position to allow safe transport. Monitor the condition of casualties, using specialist rescue equipment including cervical collars; 
  •  Communicate effectively in potentially stressful rescue situations, both as coordinator of the rescue team and as a member of that team


We are accredited by DNV and GWO. 

Training Advanced Rescue Training (ART) is carried out in accordance with the current standard GWO Basic Safety Training 

Upon completion of the course, participants receive a certificate confirming the completion of the training and the acquisition of qualifications and skills in the area of manual handling. With the skills acquired, the trainee is prepared to work safely in life and health-threatening situations in the wind energy industry. 


The following requirements must be met in order to work at heights: 

  • Adult 
  • At least secondary education 
  • valid certificate from an occupational physician that there are no health conditions for working at a height of more than three metres 
  • social security or accident insurance paid 
  • having a WINDA ID number 
  • completed medical questionnaire 
  • paid training fee
