While the Getting Started clinic touches briefly on winching, the topic deserves a full day of instruction and practice. If you are considering installing a powered winch on your vehicle, or have one already but need training to learn how to get the best from it and do it safely, you need to take this class.

This clinic is held near Mojave, CA or near Borrego Springs, CA. We have scheduled a number of the Winch clinics for the Monday following Getting Started and Advanced Beginner Clinics to create an opportunity to receive 3 days of training in one trip.

The one day course covers:
  • safety related issues
  • basic operation of the winch
  • simple and complex riggings
  • stuck assessment
  • winch capability
  • minimizing environmental impact
This is a hands on class. If you do not have a winch on your vehicle, you will be paired up with another student.

All attendees receive a coupon from Winchline.com good for 10% off any recovery gear purchase.

Single Line up & out of trouble The class is limited to 10 vehicles. No more then 5 vehicles without winches will be allowed.

Required Equipment :
For this class you must have a street legal, insured 4WD with a low range transfer case. You must have at least one tow hook (or tow point) on the front and one on the rear. You need a CB radio. All students must bring a pair of loose fitting leather palm gloves. If you have a winch you also need to bring a winch kit, winch controller, blanket, wheel chocks, and a tree strap. Bring any other optional winch equipment you have such as a Pul Pal.

Make sure your rig is ready to go off-road if needed.

Once you register, you will receive detailed driving instructions to the meeting point and other items you should bring. As always, the clinic is subject to change due to unforeseen conditions.

Satisfaction Guarantee
If you are not satisfied and do not feel you received good value for your money and time, send us an email explaining why and the full price of the class will be refunded, no questions asked. You may keep all handouts as our apology.

Before your class, some co-workers asked me, "What do you need to learn about winching? Don't you just hook up to a tree and get yourself unstuck?" After sharing what I learned, they said, "I never thought of that!" and my wheeling friends said things like "Wow, I could have used that on a trip last year."

I thought the winch clinic was great....exactly what I needed and hoped for. I especially liked the diagrams you handed out during the day for the the various riggings we practiced in the field. Aside from the conceptual help the diagrams provided for our field exercises, they have been excellent reference materials for me to review and imprint the lessons subsequent to the clinic. I still carry them with me in my recovery kit when I go off-road
