Resource Road Light Truck Driver Training

The BC Forest Safety Council, in partnership with the Western Forestry Contractors’ Association, is pleased to offer this valuable forestry worker training.

Participants spend the majority of this course at a field site and behind the wheel. Training covers the safe operation of light trucks on public roads and more specifically on resource roads in British Columbia.

Course content includes:

  • The characteristics of resource roads
  • Vehicle dynamics: an understanding of design elements and how they affect stability
  • Driver skill development.

The prime purpose of this course is to help participants be fully responsible as vehicle drivers on resource roads.

Responsible means:

The participant is informally evaluated throughout the course. There is also a marked on-road check ride and an exam to test overall understanding.

WorkSafeBC Occupational Health and Safety Regulations require that employees receive training and demonstrate competency in operating mobile equipment.

The following is an overview of the course’s 16 module outline:

Companies, groups and individuals can enroll in the two intensive days of training by contacting the training provider at chris@overlandingbc.ca

Courses are delivered by qualified trainers using material that is applicable to everyone who drives on resource roads.

Sessions are limited to a maximum of six participants per trainer (additional trainers will be added to the sessions when required). Participants or companies need to provide their own vehicles, ideally those that will be used in the workplace. If trailer towing is a regular part of the driver's duties, contact the trainer at chris@overlandingbc.ca and it may be possible to include trailer training into the regular course. The participant will have to provide a trailer if one is needed and must have their own vehicle insurance.

A certificate of participation will be issued upon successful completion of the training.
