This course provides a broad overview of offshore wind from a bird’s eye view.

The course provides an intensive introduction to the business aspects of market trends, players, business environment, laws and policies, and the basics of technology, such as measurement, machinery, electricity and construction, in a short period of time, which are indispensable to the business of offshore wind.
We also provide a workshop that utilizes a VR system to learn more about each component of the offshore wind turbine and learn about the hazards and the risks of offshore work.

”On-Site” is a hands-on training program that is unique to Nagasaki, which has actual sea areas.

Here’s what some of the participants from across the country saying about the General Course.

“I learned a lot from a wide range of topics and perspectives. The content of the course was well worth the fee. I would like to make the most of the knowledge I gained this time and contribute to the promotion of offshore wind in Japan through my business.”(Renewable energy developer)
“The course was one of the best online lectures I’ve ever attended, including the layout of the materials. Thank you for the careful preparation by the secretariat. It would have been even better if the references for each topic and information on the sources of the data and videos were included.”(Plant Engineering)
“I was very satisfied with the two-way chat and audio question and answer session, not just a one-way lecture, even though it was an online course.”(A renewable energy developer)
“It was easy to understand due to the use of video clips and detailed figures and tables.” (Offshore construction company)
“I think I would have found it difficult to understand the formula if it was explained in a straightforward manner, but the video and the explanation of the meaning of the equation made it okay even for humanities majors.” (Administrative employee)
“I learned a lot about the reality of seeing up closely inside the wind turbine towers and on top of the nacelles, which is difficult to access in real life by VR videos.” (A renewable Energy Developer)
“I heard that the textbook was based on the DOB Academy textbook, but it was helpful to learn the technical terms in English and Japanese both.” (Renewable Energy Developer)
“Overall, I was very satisfied with the conference as it was very rich in content and provided me with information that is not readily available from a developer’s perspective.” (A renewable energy developer)
