4×4 Winch & Recovery Training

Winch Training and 4x4 recovery courses

We provide the Lantra Health and Safety and Risk Management in Winching Operations course, either from one of our 4×4 sites or in the workplace. We gear the course around clients’ requirements and have worked with winches of all sizes, from forestry hand-winches, through capstan and drum 4×4 mounted winches, towed winches, up to winches mounted on battleships and aircraft carriers. Our highly experienced trainers have written training courses for industrial and military winch operators.

For non-winch related vehicle recovery (and self-recovery), including towing, rope extraction, stabilisation, jacking (standard, air, exhaust and ladder/farm jacks), use of sand ladders/waffle boards and essential debogging techniques, we can tailor courses to your requirements.
