An off road vehicle recovery winch these days is a piece of equipment that features on almost every off road or overland vehicle.

They are a brilliant piece of equipment that can make a huge difference in the recovery of a vehicle. This half day winch operation course introduces you to the intricacies of vehicle winches, the associated equipment and most importantly safe operation.

Here at Overlanding BC we believe in a few core concepts that we would like to share with you so that you may be safer and get more performance and capability in your recovery situations, and some new techniques that you may have never seen or tried before. We firmly believe that this should be a hands on session so that you get the most out of it. Overlanding BC will help you become a safe and competent winch operator and give you skills and knowledge to best evaluate and decide how best to use your winch and associated equipment.

The key with our courses is that they are hands on. We believe that you should have the opportunity to actively set up and use a winch safely during our course, rather than just observe.

  • Set up your winch.
