The course is devised around those who possess limited knowledge as well as those who potentially operate armoured vehicles but do not appreciate the management responsibilities of managing CAV's.

I would consider myself now better qualified in the monitor inspections and servicing principals

Why is vehicle maintenance so important for civilian armoured vehicles?


Civilian armoured vehicle may look like an ordinary soft skin vehicle. But to be sure, they have unique mechanical and engineering features

As a result, their maintenance and regular servicing regime need to be adapted to suit the special nature of these vehicles.

Windows, brakes, suspension are just a few of the areas of a civilian armoured vehicle that have unique servicing and maintenance requirements.
