John Sibley has been appointed to the permanent position of Training Solutions Manager (Off-Road Training) at DriveTech.

The Off-Road market is a core area for DriveTech and John’s experience and knowledge will help strengthen and grow this important area – DriveTech driver safety and driver risk management best practice is as important off-road as it is on.

John has worked on a contract basis for over 3 years with DriveTech, but with significant growth, much of it stimulated by John’s enthusiastic approach, DriveTech want to ensure this area is given the right level of focus and drive.

John joined DriveTech from the Army where he served 34 years in the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME).  His expertise is in Recovery and during his career he was the senior Recovery advisor for the Tri-Services before being commissioned.  He spent most of his commissioned service in the training environment in a variety of jobs including training design, planning and delivery. 

Commenting on his permanent appointment, John said:

“I am delighted to take up this important role. I love this sector and working with our team of exceptional trainers.  We have worked hard to build our sector leading course portfolio which is externally accredited by RoSPA, and I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of conveying both the theory and practical elements of all our professional off-road training.  We have some great customers with significant 4x4 fleets and it is really satisfying to see a leap in knowledge and 4x4 prowess when we deliver. And this can only make off road and on road driving safer and more effective too.”
