Wind Turbine Technician Apprenticeships

RWE has been running an NVQ Level 3 Wind Turbine Technician apprenticeship for almost 10 years now.

It is a high quality course that has been specially designed to train candidates to a high level that meet the needs of the growing offshore industry.

The course lasts for three years, with two of those years in college, followed by a full year hands on experience while training at one of our offshore wind farm sites.

A national apprenticeships hub is currently being piloted  by RWE in North Wales. This is where the two years of college-based study takes place, fully supported by the business.

Many of the apprentices trained through our apprentice programme go on to work on projects like Triton Knoll, or the wider RWE fleet, or within other offshore wind companies in the UK.
