I attached our training schedule for 2011. These dates are a guideline for booking purposes, but any additional training dates will be accommodated as the need arises. The venue can also be changed depending of the demographics of the group. I will communicate the proposed venue changes on a month to month basis at least 2 weeks before the scheduled training date. Have fun! :wave: :wave:

Hi Thys,

Ek sien dat voertuie nie ingesluit is nie. Ek neem aan dat ons dan ons eie voertuie kan gebruik?

What a great event it was!

Under the expert tuition of Thys, Anton and Dirk, I learned more in one weekend than I could ever have expected.

I especially enjoyed the two way interaction made possible by the instructor's style of teaching, which is where the real learning took place. Thys, Anton and Dirk's commitment to their students was top class.

In short, a good venue, great instructors, excellent course structure, loads of fun and a meaningful qualification are only some aspects that made this course a "must to do".

Thanks guys!

Highly Recommended.

Thanks for the kind words Paul. :thumbup: It was a pleasure having you guys on the course, and it was your questions that made the interaction possible. Anton, Dirk and I are looking forward to seeing you around more often in the future. :thumbup: :thumbup:

Congrats to Paul and Royco who are the Forum's 2 newest accredited 4x4 and off-road drivers. You guys were a bit nervous in the beginning, but when things started falling into place you came through with flying colours. I had heaps of fun.... !! :clap: :thumbup: :thumbup:
