Jeep courses?

Hey All. I've heard that there are some kind of off roading certifications or courses or something like that offered by Jeep (or ?) ... Does anyone know anything about this? I'm curious...
Thanks!

I do not know of any specific "Jeep" sponsored courses. But depending on what part of the country you live in a bunch of the Off-Road parks offer "Off-Roading 101" courses to introduce new people in the hobby of off-roading. What State are you in? Maybe other can chime in for that region of the country.

The only jeep related thing I can think of is the trail badges from Jeep.

You gotta run specific trails, capture the data via logging in.. and they send you crap to stick on your jeep.

Just heard about this yesterday. Concept isn't too bad, but I'm not into a bunch of stickers.

No whining now...

not too helpful for the OP but in eastern PA we have a couple off road parks where a crew that goes by "Off Road Consulting" conducts 'classes' all year, they have a beginners 101 class, intermediate 201 & advanced 301 plus a class dedicated to recovery. I took the 101 & 201 a couple years ago, they were excellent, each one is 6 hours on the trail with the instructor up front basically talking our way through the day via two way radios. They cover all the basics from what to always have with you, airing down, necessary recovery equipment, different terrains, how to approach different types of obstacles, hills, water crossings... and so forth. The classes were really valuable to me having had zero experience at the time, helped me a lot going forward to not do some damage i probably otherwise would've done had I been left to my own trial & error devices. If anything like this is available in your area I'd strongly recommend it.

The company also conducts guided rides all year at both parks so for beginners that might not know anyone to wheel with it's a great way to get out for a great day & meet some people.

The Drummond Island Jeep Jamboree is a great event with outstanding trail guides that will get you in tune with all your Jeep can do!!! Every type of terrain and obstacles can be found on the island. Plus you Badge of Honor and lots of stickers!! Hahaha

Not sure where you are from, but some of the best things to do is to find a local 4 wheel drive club and they will always have events you can go to. Moab Jeep safari is fun, but heading to Moab outside the Safari dates will be better to learn as there are always people going out and wheeling each day. Just hang out at the grocery store parking lot each morning and people show up just to run trails.

Check for a local club or offroad shop, I know a lot of them here in Ontario offer many "Newbie" runs throughout the year and they fill up quickly.
