MJOC TRIP LEADER TRAINING WEEKEND

Start Date (Theory): 13/05/2021

End Date (Practical): 15/05/2021

MJOC TRIP LEADER TRAINING

MJOC TRIP LEADER Training course includes an evening theory and 2 days practical training in the bush. 

You must have completed our Advanced 4wd Driving Course as a prerequisite to this course.

If you believe you have what it takes to become an MJOC Trip Leader you will need to have a chat with our Operations Manager or Training Manager to discuss your experience and the process of how to be involved as a Trip Leader.

The course includes all facets of planning a trip, communications, convoy management, managing a recovery in various scenarios, planning for emergencies and various recovery and winching components.

The theory is held on the Friday evening via Zoom and the practical days on the Saturday and Sunday in the Marysville and Big River forests.

The Saturday evening will be a camp out or you have the option to stay at local accomodation in Marysville.

The practical segment includes various convoy management exercises and demonstration of advanced recovery skills. Once you complete the course you will be expected to plan and run your own trips with the assistance of an MJOC Mentor who will guide you and give feedback to the committee.  You may be ok with one or need a couple of mentored trips before you are ready. We are more than happy to provide any assistance you need.

Participants must complete the whole weekend program.

MJOC Basic Driver Training

Start Date (Theory): 25/06/2021

End Date (Practical): 27/06/2021

Our training course includes an induction into how the Melbourne Jeep Owners Club runs trips, various club rules and procedures as well as developing a better understanding of how your Jeep works. We will ensure you learn how to get the best from your vehicle and enhance your driving skills to maximise your fun and enjoyment from your MJOC experience.

MJOC Basic Driver Training course is designed to ensure all drivers have a minimum competency of driving and vehicle control and recovery skills in 4WD terrain. The course encompasses a variety of aspects of driving and vehicle control skills to enable members to participate with confidence and safety on MJOC trips.

With a specific focus on Jeep four wheel drive systems the course includes four wheel driving skills, vehicle control, recovery, convoy and communication as well as many, many tips and tricks from our experienced instructors and trainers.

Standard Jeeps are more than suitable so you do not need to modify your vehicle for this course. In fact you will learn more about your vehicles capabilities and develop better driving skills using an unmodified vehicle.

WHEN YOU BOOK

Each individual participant must book on for training so we can have accurate numbers so if you have a family membership and 2 people are completing training, please make 2 bookings onto training. 

The course is strictly limited to 8 driving participants but if it is over subscribed book as a standby anyway because we often get cancelations.

WHEN AND WHERE

The course includes an evening theory and a full day practical training. Theory is conducted online via ZOOM on the Friday night prior or as advised starting at 7.30 sharp a link will be sent to each participant a few days prior.An induction manual and information booklet will be emailed to all those booked for this course. 

Practical is held on the following Sunday in a real world environment. This training starts from our meeting point at MackDonalds on the Western Hwy at Rockbank on Sunday morning and we drive in convoy to the training area near Bacchus Marsh from 8.30 until about 5pm. Meeting place details will be provided in the theory.

WHAT YOU NEED TO FOR THE COURSE

We provide all recovery gear etc. on the day but you can bring along your own if you want. Bring you lunch and drinks and all weather gear just in case.

This is a serious training course so we recommend no children or non participating passengers (partners are ok). 

Please note- that we advise removal of low clearance side steps and front lower facia panels on some lower clearance vehicles including Cherokee and Grand Cherokee models. Instructions are in your Jeep Handbook for this. All vehicles will need front and rear recovery points (WK2 Grand Cherokee do not normally have these at the front). You will also need to remove your Tow Ball Receiver hitch but put the holding pin back in, we will go into more details on the theory night.
