The Wind Training Center will provide the Global Wind Organization (GWO) Basic Safety Training w/Sea Survival. Over five days, the training will provide 40 hours of instruction in five areas: First Aid, Manual Handling, Fire Awareness, Working at Heights and Sea Survival.

The training program and supporting facility will be the first in the State and will enable New Jersey to strengthen its leadership position in offshore wind energy. Atlantic Cape was awarded $2.9M for the 1,700-square-foot facility located at the Charles D. Worthington Atlantic City campus. The New Jersey Offshore Wind Safety Training Challenge is a grant program administered by the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education with the support of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA).
