Thanks Mark, we're just doing our bit for the 4x4 community, and more importantly, the environment... The real stars of the show are the guys who go to the trouble of attending our training... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Dylan, African Offroad Academy does have accredited instructors in your area that will present the course to you. Please drop Tinus Botha (tinus@africanoffroad.co.za) an email and he will put you in touch with the guys in the Eastern Cape/Border area. You can tell him I sent you... :thumbup: :thumbup:

Die koste beloop tans R1500 per persoon vir die kursus.

Ongelukkig kan ek net namens African Offroad (Weskaap) gesels, maar ons is ook bereid om Hilux4x4-klublede 'n groepafslag te gee in die Weskaap, as ons 'n groot genoeg groep bymekaar kan kry.

Ons sal ook opleiding aanbied in die meer afgelee gebiede van die Weskaap solank die groep groot genoeg is sodat ons ten minste die reiskoste en ander uitgawes te dek.

Tot dusver het African Offroad Academy (Weskaap) 12 lede van die Hilux4x4 Forum/Club in die Weskaap ge-akkrediteer. :thumbup:

And so the list grows. Another 2 Hilux4x4 members became accredited drivers on the weekend. Congratulations to Gerrie van Eeden and Boetie Potgieter (truckin) for achieving this milestone. Thanks for attending our training and for a great weekend of learning. :thumbup: :thumbup: :clap: :clap:

I must say that our platkar trail (2 Oceans) is getting more and more challenging as time goes by. It seems like Wimpie is not spending a lot of time on track maintenance, and with recent veld fires burning all the vegetation there will be some serious soil erosion when the big rains come. We had some fun yesterday! :twisted: :twisted:

In the Joburg area, which is the best offroad training academy and what qualification should a beginner go for? I looked on the African offroad academy website and there are numerous qualifications that one can get.

All you guys that are not yet qualified. I suggest that you get qualified before the legislation comes into effect. It will only become more expensive and difficult once the legislation has been passed.

Lets get together and do this thing.

The main thing you should look out for is whether the training institution where you are going to spend your hard earned money, is TETA accredited to train Unit Standard 254135 - Apply the techniques for operating four wheel drive (4WD) vehicles, in on-road and off-road conditions, or not. This unit standard is the one that is the minimum requirement, according to the Draft Norms & Standards as they stand.

The Advanced unit standard (US254154) can only be done once you were found competent in the entry level US254135.

There are currently only 2 TETA accredited Training Service Providers in South Africa, of which African Offroad Academy is one. Contact Tinus Botha at AOA and he'll put you in contact with a training facilitator in your area. :thumbup: :thumbup:
