The ATV Safety Institute started a number of free interactive online safety courses for adult, teen (12-15 years old) and youth (6-11 years old) ATV riders, reported the institute.
Each self-paced course runs about two hours and focuses on the ATV Safety Institute’s Golden Rules and the fundamentals of the ATV itself and riding, with an emphasis on risk management and avoidance.
The online courses include real riding-experience videos from a rider’s point of view, animation and interactive learning exercises and quizzes. Users can bookmark the courses for easy return access. They’re available online at www.atvsafety.org.
“With a simple keystroke, ATV enthusiasts can interact with our online courses in preparation to taking one of our half-day, hands-on ATV RiderCourses,” Paul Vitrano, executive vice president, ATV Safety Institute, said in the release. “Or they can use the e-courses to refresh what they learned during a RiderCourse they may have taken recently or even years ago.”
The safety courses were designed in conjunction with CraneMorley and the current beta versions have won three international awards within the creative industry. To engage youth 6-11 years of age even more, the ASI e-courses are introduced by avid ATV riders Christopher and Kyle Massey, stars of the Disney Channel TV shows “Zoey 101,” “That’s So Raven” and “Cory in the House.” psb
