Training location

Assuming below conditions are fulfilled, L1, TT1, L2 training can be done either on-site, at Customer location, or in factory, at Vaisala location. Some official Vaisala partner, with valid contract and expertise level, may also offer L1 training at their location.

It can be advised to perform L1 training at Customer location, to ensure good understanding of Customer usage, and provide personalized advices and support for WindCube installation, considering Customer and environmental constraints.
