A Wind Turbine is a Production Plant designed to operate stand-alone, in the field, adapting itself to varying working conditions (wind speed, wind direction, connection with the Grid, weather conditions, wind gusts, etc.)

The staff in charge of its commissioning, operation, and maintenance must have an in-depth knowledge of the reactions to all these conditions. Its training can only be achieved with "on-the-field" work (travel costs, depending on the occurrence of actual failures in Wind Turbine in Production), or through specialized Real-Time Simulations. This knowledge is very different from the one required by Engineers that design WTs, as it implies knowing about the behavior of the Plant, that is, knowing about the functionalities implemented in the Wind Turbine Controller.

You have some videos on Youtube that show these concepts.
