Certified 4WD Trainer with UFWDA
United Four Wheel Drive Associations - Protecting, Promoting, and Providing 4x4 opportunities worldwide
Beginning in 1993, UFWDA developed curriculum for four wheel drive education clinics, including driver training skills. Today, the UFWDA "4WD Awareness Program" has matured into a relevant and competitively designed driver training program for all skill levels of off highway driving enthusiasts.

Through the UFWDA 4WD Awareness program, UFWDA has trained and introduced thousands of four wheelers, novice and experienced alike, on the components of their 4×4 vehicle, proper off-highway driving techniques, proper vehicle recovery, courtesies related to four wheeling, and environmental awareness utilizing the Tread Lightly! philosophy.

Badlands Off Road Adventures training courses meet all requirements of the UFWDA 4WD Awareness Course. Students graduating from Badlands' 4x4 training will also receive their UFWDA 4WD Awareness Program Completion Certificate, UFWDA 4WD Awareness Program sticker, and a complimentary One Year Membership in the UFWDA (includes UFWDA logo decals and subscriptions to monthly eNews bulletins and their quarterly "Voice" online magazine).
