“Don’t Concentrate on Making a Lot of Money, Rather on Becoming the Type of Person with Whom People Want to do Business.”

Bill Burke is an internationally recognized trainer and recovery expert who teaches back country driving techniques, winching and extrication methods, vehicle preparation and maintenance, land navigation and woods skills through classes, private training, instructor and trail leader courses to individuals, families, groups, clubs, vehicle manufacturers and dealers, tour operators, government agencies, and all organizations that use 4WD vehicles in their operations.

4-Wheel Drive Education starts with an understanding of how a 4-wheel drive (4WD) works, giving you insight into why your 4WD performs as it does. Bill, through his experience as an ASE Master Truck Technician and the use of training aids, will teach you how to get the most out of your 4WD. Each obstacle, stuck vehicle, and piece of 4WD equipment becomes a discussion, a demonstration, and an opportunity for learning. Safety is fundamental.

Bill’s sense of humor and history, geographical expertise, and environmental insight combine to give a greater sense of civilization as we know it relative to the prospectors, explorers, natives and dinosaurs who were on the trail before us! His comprehension of group dynamics and personalities means that even in large groups, each person feels like a vital part of the training rather than merely a participant. From first-time 4-wheelers to highly experienced drivers, each student will expand their skill level exponentially under Bill’s watchful eye.
