Course Description
This course is needed to train employees to safely operate utility-terrain vehicles (UTVs), which are motorized off-highway vehicles.

Utility Task Vehicle or Utility Terrain Vehicle, also known as UTV’s are more commonly known as side-by-sides. These off-road vehicles have also been referred to as ROV’s or recreational off-highway vehicles and completion of a UTV course has become mandatory on many jobs sites for employees and sub-contracted personnel.

A UTV 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; and good judgement and courtesy. Recognizing your own capabilities and limitations is also a very important factor for the safe operation of your UTV.
