What time does the training start /finish?
We meet at 09:00. The day ends when all training has been completed. This is usually around 16:00-17:00 depending on the level of student participation.
What do I need to bring?
Your 4wd (but we also have some for hire), sunscreen, insect repellent, and good shoes/boots (no Wellingtons /gum boots, open toed sandals, or bare feet). We provide training handouts, water, tea, coffee and snacks.
Can I damage my vehicle?
We will not let you use your 4wd on any obstacle that can damage your vehicle. Participants are at risk only if they do not follow the directions of the instructor. Also, please remember, these obstacles mirror road conditions that you will find in this region – you are learning to handle “real life” situations.
Can you provide a 4wd for training?
Yes, we can. But where possible, we recommend that drivers use their own vehicle in order to get to know its capabilities and limitations. We provide a 4wd on any obstacles or courses where there may be a risk of damage such as on the Protective Driving Course.
Are your courses competency based?
Yes! Some courses are competency based; participants will be required to demonstrate competency to a set standard within each module. Participants must successfully complete all modules per course to receive a Certificate of Attainment. Those participants, who have not yet achieved, will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
