4WD Driver and Vehicle Recovery Training
COURSE WARNING!! THIS IS NOT A PRETEND 4WD COURSE.
Unlike our competitors we deliver real 4WD training, no pretending and no simulations.
When we do recovery we actually bog our vehicles, we don’t drive around pot holes and call it difficult terrain driving, we don’t just talk about water crossings, we actually walk and drive through them and when we do emergency off road braking our instructors are in the vehicle with you, not standing outside the vehicle operating fancy light shows.
For safety reasons we have a trainer to trainee ratio of 3-1, this unfortunately does not make us the cheapest provider in the marketplace, but it does make us one of the safest, as we ensure there is a trainer in every vehicle at all times excluding recovery times. And unlike some of our competitors we will deliver everything that is in the training package that is nationally recognised. With STS you will gain the confidence you seek as you learn the limitations and capabilities of your Four wheel drive (4WD) or All Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicle. We offer an introduction to off road 4 wheel driving (4WD) to those who want to learn new skills or touch up on old ones. Our introductory 4WD course is aimed at the recreational four wheel driver and the mining industry and is structured to teach you how to read the terrain and negotiate obstacles. Our courses also cover such things as trip planning, assessing the driving surface, offroad emergency braking (straight line and into corners), driving across slopes, driving in water, mud and sand, stall starting, jump starting vehicles, snatch strap recovery and winch recovery.
We continue to offer Nationally recognised 4WD qualifications to some of the major construction and mining companies. We can also offer 4WD qualifications to individuals that require the competencies to drive a 4WD on a mine site.
We offer 4WD courses throughout Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast and all over Australia and the Pacific region (upon application).
Our courses are designed around safety and the environment, as well as having a lot of fun, whilst we undertake various tasks. We will show you how to assess the driving terrain properly to avoid any vehicle damage or personal injury. We can also structure courses to suit the mining industry and offer National Qualifications through one of our Registered Training Organisations.
