Technical Sprints

Technical Sprints are designed to enhance your theoretical knowledge within one of the following topics: Controls, Hydraulics, Mechanicals, Gearbox and Electrics.

What are technical sprints?

Technical sprints have been developed following our assessment, where we test in five different subjects: Controls, Electrics, Gearbox, Hydraulics, and Mechanicals. If the assessment indicates a lack of knowledge in one or more of these subjects but high scores in others, we suggest our technical sprints instead of undergoing an entire Technology Essential training. This allows technicians to reach the desired knowledge level and keep pace with their colleagues on our Competency pathway and more Advanced Theory training quickly and effectively.

Our Programs

We take a 360° approach to operational training and have designed a range of programs to support the development of wind turbine technicians as well as off-site supporting resources and operational leadership teams to support a holistic understanding of the issues which drive operational performance.

Provides an in-depth insight into the core functionalities of PLCs (Programmable Logic Computers) and CPUs, including how computers and systems communicate. The course is designed to give a solid understanding of controls and how PLCs communicate with various systems.

This sprint covers:

  • PLC fundamentals

  • Different signals for PLCs

  • Computer language and binary code

  • Digital and analog signals

  • Protocols and parameters

  • Bus systems including Can- Inter and Modbus

  • Scada
