Over the past few years the 4×4 Response Wales Training Team has developed a range of materials and skills together with accessing some excellent training locations and facilities and have been offering the benefit of these resources to our agency and other partners to help them discharge their duty of care to their employees.
Specifically, the Training Team has organised Off Road and Severe Weather Training Days for client staff to develop their own skills and confidence and also to gain a better understanding of the capabilities of their vehicles and learn techniques to get the best out of them in a variety of situations and conditions.
A typical Training Day would start with a safety briefing and Driving Techniques presentation over a coffee followed by vehicle checks and then a series of driving exercises which get progressively more challenging during the course of the day. Candidates are teamed up in Groups of 3 per client vehicle with a 4×4 Response Wales Instructor working with the Group for the day.
Each candidate has the opportunity to drive all of the sections in turn under supervision. The routes are selected to be appropriate and challenging for the vehicle and driver but non-damaging. All of our Instructors have professional qualifications in Off Road Driving and have significant training experience and deliver training that is based on the NPTC syllabus using a programme that has been tried and tested on over 200 candidates.
The training is tailored to the capabilities of the vehicles used by the trainees, who are gradually taught how to use their vehicles safely in challenging conditions and environments.
In addition to Off Road Driver Training, the Team can also organise other courses such as Vehicle Recovery, Navigation, Bushcraft, First on Scene or can develop bespoke packages for corporate training and team building events.
Our extensive network of private sites across Wales together with various catering and accommodation options gives us significant flexibility to organise unique events.
