Day one is on getting to know your machine, learning the controls and operations of the machine, and getting hands-on operation regarding a variety of riding techniques and strategies. Day two is designed to further train and teach the individuals on winching techniques, as well as how to put tracks on or take them off. There is also a water component in day two to ensure rider have the skills and knowledge required when entering or exiting water with an ARGO.

ARGO off-road vehicles perform many of the same tasks as traditional ATV’s or Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTV), plus all ARGO models are fully amphibious The ARGO is designed to be a safe vehicle when used as intended. The key to safe operation is YOUR knowledge of the vehicle; recognizing and accepting it as a motorized vehicle; respecting its capabilities and its limitations; varying operating conditions; good judgement and courtesy. Recognizing your own capabilities and limitations is also a very important factor for the safe operation of your ARGO.

We also offer training on fixing and servicing your Argo. Please ask and we can provide additional Argo training to suite your needs.

This course has been designed with input and assistance from Ontario Drive and Gear Ltd., the Canadian manufacturer of ARGO.

Bear Awareness Course

Grizzly and black bears are unpredictable at the best of times. Whether you are seeking recreation in bear country (hiking, camping, fishing, hunting) or you’re involved in an industry that requires you to work in bear country (seismic, logging, forestry), you need to be aware of what to do in the event of a bear sighting or encounter.

While the best defense against a bear encounter is to avoid it altogether, this is not always possible. This program provides guidance for pre-planning before you enter bear country and on-site situations. Learn how best to handle a bear encounter using the knowledge and experiences of experts from the field.
