How do I become a wind turbine rotor blade technician?

The UK alone has over 7000 wind turbines onshore and offshore. Collectively these turbines have more than 21,000 blades. Each of these blades need to be inspected regularly by qualified turbine blade technicians to maintain their efficiency and performance. Add to this number a dramatic increase (over 60%) in wind turbine installations in Europe by 2020, and you can see why turbine rotor blade technicians are in high demand!
