At Northumberland College, the quality of our facilities and our emphasis on giving you as much practical experience as possible, in a real work environment, will help you to start or progress your career in this sector.
Our courses prepare trainees with all the essential skills and qualifications - over 90% of our students progress to employment within the wind industry. We offer various courses at level2 and level three that will take you from introduction to the industry up to fully qualified wind technician status.
Our practical training is developed in partnership with industry to ensure it equips the future workforce with the skills and knowledge needed to work both on-shore and off-shore.
Located in the heart of the North East coast renewable energy hub at Blyth harbour where a large number of wind turbines and associated equipment arrive from European manufacturers, our training centre is close to the ORE Catapult (formerly Narec) with access to specialist facilities. Our new location has the advantage of close proximity to other services and manufacturers involved both directly and indirectly in the wind industry.
Our wind hub location gives you access to industry standard equipment including: state-of-the-art 27m climbing tower for specific 'working at height' training, Nacelles, blades, mechanical and electrical components. There is also access to Port of Blyth training services to supplement aspects of the program and access to the sea and live working turbines.
