Increasingly exploration and survey crews use ATVs to cover difficult or fragile lands in their quests. This one-day duration course will appeal to novice or experienced riders of these machines as it takes them along a sensible learning pathway with plenty of real-life challenges. ATVs can be inherently unstable, plenty of operators having come to grief with rollovers, so our program examines why this is so and how to avoid it.
The day commences with a brief theory session that can incorporate Power Point combined with a vehicle familiarisation and preparation workshop. With fluids checked, tyres inflated correctly and controls understood, riders will then proceed to the loading and unloading phase of their program, another high-risk activity. Later at our training grounds you’ll be set numerous tasks on a range of terrains that highlight the maximum capability of machine and rider, all underpinned with a safety emphasis.
Appropriate apparel is an imperative, without helmet, jacket, boots and gloves you shouldn’t be anywhere near one of these vehicles, so we’ll analyse what PPE you’ll require and on the day of your training can supply not only a late-model 4WD ATV but also suitable attire for an additional expense.
The program is transportable, deliverable anywhere it might be required. Courses conducted regularly or on demand.
Cost: $450pp (delivered ex-Adelaide)
Additional: Don’t have access to your own ATV? Adventure 4WD has a fleet of Yamaha 4WDs that are available for hire. We can also supply helmets and jackets. P.O.A. Call.
