Week-long

WreckMaster’s 8-day all-inclusive training course will be the most valuable experience of your towing and recovery career.

 
At the end of the week, you’ll have covered material from the 2/3 Fundamentals, 4/5 Advanced Techniques and 6/7 Heavy Duty Applications courses.

Not only will you be exposed to the most advanced towing and recovery techniques taught by our team of lead instructors, but you’ll be spending a week with other recovery professionals from across the USA and Canada and even around the world, who will share their experiences and skills each day.

The week-long program is offered at the WreckMaster training facility in Fayetteville, NC, and includes all meals, lodging, tuition and training materials.

If you have already graduated from our Level 2/3 Fundamentals course you have the option of attending the 6-day course.

 

“Great class. Anyone that gets in a tow truck needs to take the week-long.”

– Patrick Polcyn, Rendels Inc.

“I’ve been driving a light duty wrecker for 5 years and it was worth every penny. I went there thinking ‘what are they going to teach me?’ Was I ever wrong. I learned so much. It made me a way better operator then I ever thought I could be. Thanks WreckMaster.”

– Jean-Paul Pigeau, Northern Industrial Services Group

 
This 8-day, all-inclusive Level 2/3, 4/5 and 6/7 course is an excellent fit for:

• Operators looking to take their towing and recovery training to the next level
• Incident managers who require the latest in towing and recovery skills
• Individuals who would like to learn more technical skills in towing and recovery
• Companies that work with or train fire and rescue personnel
• Operators who want to know how to break down a recovery scenario like towing and recovery engineers

 
Any operator with any level of skill or experience level can attend this class, although we find operators with 3 to 5 years experience in towing and recovery benefit the most because they can relate past experiences to the training modules. If you haven’t previously attended a WreckMaster course, you need to attend the full 8-day course.

– Scott Fisher, Taylor’s Auto Body
