Students will receive academic instruction as well as practical hands-on. Topics covered during the classroom portion of the course include AHV-IV essential systems, techniques for safe operation, weight distribution, oil and hydraulic systems, correct interpretation of system gauges, controls, situation awareness and safety. Hands-on exercises will require the participant to perform a pre-start inspection, start the vehicle, and shutdown the vibrator vehicle, leaving it in a safe state. Safe operation of the vehicle must be demonstrated in various modes over a route determined by the instructor. The route will include operation in close proximity to obstructions, tight turns, differing off-road terrain and on-road driving. Successful completion is determined through written test and demonstrated driving skill.
