On Road 4WD
Our On Road 4WD course provides participants with exposure to the essential theory and a variety of practical opportunities for safe 4WD driving.
This course incorporates the Units of Competency, Operate Light Vehicle and Operate Commercial Vehicle. The course content was developed by Shawsett Training with the aim of “raising awareness of driving practices that contribute to the safety and welfare of course participants and developing the potential for the reduction of personal injury and vehicle damage” when operating a light vehicle”.
About the Course
The course is based upon the results of negotiations with industry, including the Mining Industry (audit compliant for Rio Tinto (Pilbara Iron) and KJV Gorgan) and Government Agencies, to establish an effective course for drivers of light commercial 4WD or Non 4WD vehicles. The practical training can be carried out in both 4WD and non-4WD light vehicles. The course is conducted regularly from our offices in Midland and may be conducted at the client premises. Importantly, this course is conducted on road, in real time conditions and utilises suburban, highway and gravel surface roads where participants will experience varying grip levels and road camber, and the subsequent impact on vehicle performance.
