Advanced Winch Training

Our RoSPA 1 day Professional Winch Operator training course, is aimed at novice operators who may be expected to assist in winching operations, or run standard single line pulls themselves.

Courses will usually be run with the equipment that the candidates will be expected to use, and can include hand winches (tirfor or capstan types), vehicle mounted winches (hydraulic, PTO or electric, including fast spool types), or stand alone winches (static or trailer mounted).

All of Beyond Driving's courses are designed to be responsive to the requirements of the clients, and our highly experienced winch instructors will tailor the delivery of the training to the needs of the candidates.
