About Train The Trainer

This 5-day program is designed specifically for experienced off-roaders with knowledge, skills and abilities in off-road driving concepts and recovery. This is not a beginner program; you can expect to be challenged with both practical and theoretical instruction and scenarios. Half of the purpose is to solidify and expand your off-road knowledge and skills; the other half is to give you the proficiency and confidence to impart that knowledge to others in a structured, consistent manner. All those who complete the course will become members of the Wheeling Wisely Training Team and be qualified to deliver the Wheeling Wisely curriculum to our members.

The goal of this training program is to have up to 20 individuals with a strong foundation in off-road skills and knowledge which the 4WDABC can work with in the future to develop and teach an assortment of training courses to our wider membership. These trained individuals will be vital in expanding our Education portfolio and bringing more significant opportunities to our entire membership to receive the training they need to be competent, wise, and safe off-road enthusiasts. Given that BC covers a huge area, we encourage those from all regions of the province to apply as we aspire to deliver our educational offerings province-wide.

About This Application

In the following application form, we ask for information regarding experience, work history and teaching/training experience because we sincerely hope all participants will work with our Association to develop future training programs and, as such, need to know those individuals cannot only learn materials but have the skills to teach other individuals coming from a variety of backgrounds and experience levels. If you are unsure about your teaching/training experience, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and start a conversation with our Directors.
