Cederberg Team Receives Specialist 4x4 training

Cederberg Team Receives Specialist 4x4 training
Published: 24 August 2017

Recently the Cederberg team was lucky enough to be paid a visit by Mr. Johan Viljoen from the Land Cruiser Club of South Africa. Johan and his partner came to give the team off-road driving training.

The rugged terrain and vastness of the Cederberg regularly present challenging driving situations as part of day-to-day operations, and personnel must be aware of the capabilities and limitations of their vehicles to optimise efficiency and to be able to take adequate care of equipment.

Therefore the training was very welcome, and a valuable skill to acquire. The training started with a morning of theoretical instruction that covered everything from the mechanics of 4 x 4 vehicles, driving safety, vehicle recovery, tyre care and how to assess and approach different off-road obstacles.

Thereafter, the team headed out to apply their newly required knowledge in the field, which proved extremely educational and exhilarating! In addition to the training, the team received recovery and tyre repair equipment sponsored by the Land Cruiser Club of South Africa worth R 8000.

The recovery equipment was kindly supplied and sponsored by 1 st Outdoor and 4x4 centre. We are extremely thankful and appreciative of this generous donation, d would like to thank Mr. Johan Viljoen for taking time out of his busy schedule to train our Cederberg team so they are now well and truly prepared for any situation in the field.
