My name is Leanne and I have recently completed a 4x4 course with you as a requirement with my employer. I wanted to let you know that I found the course to be very informative, very hands on which is very useful. Having just moved to the NT and having a new wheel drive there was plenty for me to learn. I learnt the value of a checklist before leaving home on a trip, how valuable a shovel and a piece of pipe is when you are on your own and need to change a tyre. I thought I knew the best way to change a tyre but now I know a much safer way of doing this thanks to James and Ian. Thank you so much for making the 2 day course enjoyable and I would recommend this course to anyone.
