Off Road 4WD – Standard (1 day)
We offer two delivery options for Off Road 4WD training. Our Standard course (1-day) provides participants with exposure to the essential theory & practical opportunities for safe 4WD driving and recovery, while our Premium course (2-day) includes a greater level of practical application including basic first aid, which is better suited to remote and isolated 4WD use.
This course was developed by Shawsett Training with the aim of providing drivers with the knowledge and skills necessary for the safe operation of four wheel drive vehicles, and associated equipment so as to assist in the prevention of avoidable crashes, unsafe incidents and unnecessary wear and damage.
The rationale for the course is based upon extensive negotiation with industry, including a large Government Agency, to establish an effective course for drivers routinely exposed to conditions requiring the use of four-wheel drive. In developing this course, recognition was given to policies developed by Occupational Safety and Health Officers and recognised four-wheel drive safe operation guidelines.
The objectives of this program are to:
- Enhance four wheel driving skills
- Enhance driving skills of a light commercial vehicle
- Create a responsible driving attitude
- Develop Risk Awareness
- Develop potential for
- Prevention of avoidable crashes
- Reduction of unsafe incidents
- Improved operating efficiency
- Lower maintenance costs
