4x4 Driver Training From Protec Training


If you have a 4 x4 or are thinking of buying a 4x4 then going on a One Day Protec Driver Training Course would be the ideal thing for you. The course, taught by DSA approved driving instructors, is aimed at the recreational 4x4 driver or light industrial users who will spend the majority of their time on little more than forestry tracks and fields. It provides a basic introduction to 4x4 systems, vehicle preparation and practical experience of driving in a variety of situations.

It provides a basic introduction to 4x4 systems, vehicle preparation and practical experience of driving in a variety of situations. The course shows you how to get out of 'sticky' situations Much of what is covered on this course is also useful for on-road severe winter conditions such as snow and heavy rain.

All of our 4x4 courses now include an on-road session which highlights the differences between 4x4s and cars on the road and makes drivers aware of the limitations of the 4x4, understanding the unique characteristics of these vehicles. We are the only 4x4 training organisation which offers this as a standard part of 4x4 training courses.

4x4 courses with Protec are generic and cover all types of 4x4 makes and systems and the practical training can be carried out in our vehicles or your own. Every course also has a session on practical recovery techniques.

All our 4x4 training courses carry LANTRA Awards certification. This is the Health & Safety Executive recommended level of training for professional operators.



2-DAY PROFESSIONAL USER COURSE - (LANTRA Awards Professional User Certificate)

This Health & Safety Executive approved course covers all of the material covered in the one-day course but provides much more depth of knowledge and much more driving experience - particularly on difficult ground. This Health & Safety Executive approved course covers all of the material covered in the one-day course but provides much more depth of knowledge and much more driving experience - particularly on difficult ground.

Almost the whole day is spent in the vehicle and the terrain becomes much more demanding. In addition, practical recovery will be conducted using a variety of techniques in real situations.

This is the recommended course for all those who will operate on severe ground, overseas or in other potentially demanding environments. It is particularly suitable for emergency services, telecomms and power system maintainers and all operators who may be called upon to perform in severe conditions. Training can also be tailored to specific requirements.

A busy three days of 4x4 training, first-aid skills and the principles of survival are put into practice and will teach you as much about yourself as about the skills themselves.

The course is a well-balanced mix of theory and practical skills and is challenging and fun. A night in a well constructed improvised shelter can be very comfortable if it is done properly.

As well as learning to drive a 4x4, you will learn about the priorities of staying alive in the wilderness and how to source food and water in hostile conditions.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVELLERS

This course is recommended by a number of European organisations involved in world travel. All their travellers are required to attend it before going on to more adventurous things. To date we have had groups from Holland and Slovenia participating. They all thought it was a great experience and we took great delight in showing them the wilderness of Scotland at close quarters!
