WINDA is GWO’s new online education status database. WINDA is designed to be a simple, intuitive and secure way to access and control your GWO training.

WINDA is a powerful simple tool that helps you keep track of your training status so you can focus on your work.

WINDAa will remind you when your training is about to expire, so you can make sure that you receive refresher training courses in time.

In WINDA employers you can check the validity of your GWO training by looking up your WINDA ID quickly and safely.
