Beyond Driving’s winch operator course is an excellent way to improve performance and safety in the workplace. The course is tailored to the needs of the industry, with specific training available for operators in forestry, engineering, agriculture, and search and rescue teams. Our courses are practical and highly effective, providing learners with the knowledge, skills, and ability to assess and manage risk.
Recently, Beyond Driving had the pleasure of delivering a bespoke winch operator course at Heacham Holiday and Macdonnel Caravans in Norfolk. The course was designed to safely winch static caravans onto specialist low-loader vehicles. This was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our expertise and help our clients achieve their goals.
The Standard Winch training course is ideal for novice operators who may be expected to assist in winching operations or run standard single-line pulls themselves. The course covers important topics such as legal frameworks, equipment checks and suitability, personal protective equipment, assessment of the operation, rigging safety and stabilisation of winched object/vehicle, personnel safety, and basic off-road driving on established tracks and safe inclines.
Our RoSPA assured 2-day Advanced Winch Operator training course is suitable for operators who may be expected to manage winching operations or run complex and multi-line pulls themselves. This is a comprehensive course ultimately designed to keep people who undertake winching safe and free from accidents that can be avoided. The course covers all the topics included in the Standard Winch training course, as well as the assessment and design of winching operation, leading and operating multi-line or angled pulls, and much more.
All of Beyond Driving’s courses are designed to be responsive to the requirements of the clients. Our highly experienced winch instructors will tailor the delivery of the training to the needs of the candidates. We can deliver all courses at your own location, using your own equipment, where possible. Alternatively, courses can be delivered at one of our off-road training locations across the UK.
