UTV, ATV, & SxS Training Opportunities

The 4x4 Training Center of Vermont provides ongoing UTV, ATV, and Side by Side training opportunities for busisnesses and individuals. Commonly packaged alongside other practical trainings like driving off-road, and trailer safety, these classes are designed to meet and exceed OSHA training requirements for businesses while also offering a thrilling and informative day for individuals. These classes are perfect for individuals that trailer their UTV to a trail head before heading out for work, or an adventure.

TAKE THE RISK OUT OF HAVING FUN: 

Too many people simply jump on an ATV and go. The Consumer Protection Safety Commission reports 93,000+ ATV related emergency room visits in their last reporting year, 2017. It is the employers responsibility to ensure every employee is riding safely, mitigating negligent behavior, and reducing the companies day to day liabilities. UTV/ATVs are amazingly capable and useful machines when working in these remote areas, but proper training and practice is essential to the safety of individuals and businesses.

  • Control UTV/ATVs in a variety of environments.
  • Understand the differences between the two machines.
  • Properly prepare individuals and your machines.

  • When & how to engage differential controls.

FROM THE CLASSROOM TO THE FIELD

This course starts with a classroom session to make sure students understand the basic mechanics and potential dangers of working with these machines. The bulk of this course is performed in the field to prioritize the importance of practice and “seat time” in getting people comfortable and capable. Under the watchful eye of our expert instructors, students will progress, gradually increasing their skills from slow speed and flat ground maneuvers to operating on extremely rough terrain.
