ATV Safety Summit: Training Innovations - ATV Safety Education and Training

Published on

Raymond Ochs, Vice-President of Training Systems, All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Institute, presented this at CPSC's ATV Safety Summit Oct. 12, 2012. The ATV Safety Institute (ASI) believes in the value of high-quality safety education and training that puts contemporary learning theory into effective practice. Safety countermeasures need to address several audiences, from novice riders to enthusiasts, and to leverage several delivery mechanisms, from electronic and web-based formats to classroom and hands-on training. For nearly 25 years, the core ASI program has been the ATV RiderCourse. In an effort to make the ATV RiderCourse more accessible, ASI recently developed an alternative delivery and participation option through a two-part E-Course and S-Course. In complementing and reinforcing each other, the E-Course provides cognitive learning through three age-appropriate modules while the S-Course provides the skills training and safe riding practices. These courses along with supplementary public information and education programs such as the youth-oriented Treadsylvania, a fun, and engaging web-based game, provide a multi-pronged approach. Because the heart of the ATV RiderCourse and other interactive programs is the dynamic relationship of rider and Instructor, ASI provides initial Instructor training processes coupled with formal development opportunities to foster effective teacher-learner transactions. The result is a student centered instructional strategy that helps riders not only value safety, but internalize safe riding practices in their day-to-day ATV use.
