    Hi Ralph

    I see all the scheduled training is brand specific, do you do "open" training as well and is it on special request? Just wondered, because some guys at the club last night mentioned that they would like to send their wifes for training and I know of a few other people that would like go for training.

    Hi Barto

    The training is generic by nature we just spend a bit of time on some of the manufacturer and vehicle specific systems e.g. cammand trac, quadra drive, MASTC, etc for the dealerships. Training is open to all and I will certainly include vehicle specific detail in my training for trainees. If the club wants to have a training day facilitated by the Adventure 4X4 Academy we can also arrange this. Training with a couple of challenges in the afternoon.

    Regards

    Default Mitsubishi Offroad Xplorers Training Saturday 30 September

    Dear Mitsubishi Owner

    As part of Mitsubishi Motors’ ongoing customer support program you are cordially invited to attend an off-road driving course to be held on Saturday 30 th September 2006

    Venue to meet : Maritime Motors William Moffet
    Time to meet : 08:30 (Coffee will be on hand and the theory session will be completed here)
    Practical Training : 09:30 Petworth Sundays River Training Track (Practical and personal tuition)

    The cost of the introductory course is covered by Mitsubishi Motors and the Adventure 4X4 Academy will facilitate the training. An additional fee of R200-00 is applicable to this course as it is an Intermediate course and not the standard introductory course, placing a greater focus on the practical aspects of driving off-road.

    On completion of the course you will be issued with a proficiency certificate.

    The sponsored training is valid for Mitsubishi owners/vehicles but you are more than welcome to bring friends and family as observers in your vehicle. If you know of another Mitsubishi 4X4 owner who may be interested in attending the course please forward their details to me so that I can add them to our distribution list for training and trails. Please note the training is open to all makes of 4X4 but a fee of R750-00 per vehicle is applicable.

    You can be assured no harm will come to your vehicle as the facility is specifically designed as a training venue. For the majority of the day you will have a qualified instructor in the passenger seat to coach and advise you.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for you to realize both your vehicles and your own potential and build the knowledge and confidence necessary to fully utilize the capabilities of your vehicle. The course is specifically aimed at familiarizing you with the capabilities of the vehicle to ensure the safe operation of the vehicle in an off-road environment.

    RSVP to your Mitsubishi dealer by no later than Wednesday 27th September 2006
    to ensure your place as the training will be limited to 14 vehicles.

    If you have any queries or require more info do not hesitate to contact me.

    Hi Ross

    As you own a Mitsubishi you qualify for free Introductory training. I recommend you upgrade to an intermediate course for around R200.00. Contact your Mitsubishi dealer and ask. If you are the Eastern Cape I can help.

    Currently no training is government certified. There is a National Offroad Workshop (NOW) initiative that is a joint initiative between government, vehicle manufacturers and the off-road community. As part of NOW a division has specifically been formed to address training - SANOTA (South African National Offroad Training Association). SANOTA has submitted curriculum for all froms of off road training 4X4, ATV(Quad) and MotorX to SETA for approval.

    So in terms of reference the certificate means nothing if it is not reconised. Can anybody with a bit of 4x4 experence issue a certificate.

    The current standard for recognising certificates is that certificates recognised by vehicle manufactures and insurance institutions are valid. So if you want training ensure the academy has contractual commitments form a vehicle manufacturer or is accredited by an insurance institute, if the latter make sure you phone the insurance company to confirm.

    Most reputable 4x4 manufacturers do offer training.

    Mitsubishi Xplorers
    Ford Ranger Experience
    Land Rover Experience
    VW Touareg Training

    A lot depends on the dealer and his motivation to actually support these training schemes.

    Contact your dealer and ask.
