B.C. company trains teams worldwide to safely handle off-road vehicles – BC

For anyone who has ever dreamed of tackling a back load in this country, or anywhere in the world, we have a team ready to train you.

Christopher Walker of Overland Training Canada said: this is BC.

Walker launched Overland Training Canada in 2015. It was a natural career choice for a man who had been exposed as a child to mountaineering, kayaking, climbing and everything the great outdoors had to offer.

Walker saw great potential in the unique service when he moved to Canada 17 years ago.

“North America has so much variety of terrain that it took a 4×4 to get to where you wanted to go on that terrain. .

But he trains more than the adventurous type. Forestry, mining, and oil and gas companies look to Overland to prepare their employees for the long haul.

They’re serious about reducing the risk of drivers driving their own vehicles, reducing incidents, and reducing damage to infrastructure and machinery,” said Walker. I really try to encourage you to use these simple skills to get home safely at the end of each day. ”

Some on the recreational side are more than just outdoor enthusiasts. Walker coaches drivers competing in international events and serves as a trainer for his annual Rebelle Rally in the United States.

“This is an all-women’s event. About 50 teams did about 2,000 kilometers off-road over eight days of competition,” said Walker.

With endless terrain and unlimited thrills, Overland Training Canada helps ensure the safety of its customers and the safe return of their expensive rides.

I think industry and recreation see value in getting training,” said Walker. So as an organization, we are getting bigger and farther. ”
