An industry-recognised centre of excellence for blade repair and inspection training
The Altitec Academy is a unique education and training programme, which not only qualifies would-be rotor blade technicians for a career in the global wind energy sector, but also makes wind farm owners and operators aware of the complexity and financial impact of blade damage on their assets.
Established in 2010, the Academy delivers two interlinked modules from Altitec’s dedicated training facility in London. These are:
A 5-day RUK-accredited certification that provides an insight into how to spot operational rotor blade damage and conduct minor blade surface repairs
A 5-day training course covering the fundamentals of rotor blade repair off the ground and providing an overview of advanced repair methods
Courses at the Academy are conducted to the highest possible industry standards by Altitec’s team of experienced engineers, each with over 10 years of blade servicing experience. They leave participants well-placed either to take key skills and lessons learnt back to operational wind farms or start careers as blade technicians in the on- and offshore sectors.
Increasingly, the Altitec Academy is becoming recognised as a global training service point, and, over the past six years, we have trained participants from a number of emerging markets around the world.
