The PowerSport Institute (PSI), located in northeastern Ohio, is now offering an American V-twin program that provides students with a 48-week course with hands-on motorcycle technician training, PowerSport Institute stated in a press release.
The course gives students an overview of how to build and repair motorcycles, featuring classes on Harley-Davidson and manufacturer supported Victory Motorcycles by Polaris and S&S Cycles. The program, designed to mimic a shop and service department, also teaches students about safety check inspections, drive functionality, starting, ignition systems, charging, diagnostic techniques and troubleshooting for a variety of bikes.
“With today’s technological advances, one of our main focuses is teaching students to adapt to the new fuel injection systems and software that is now standard on motorcycles,” Bernie Thompson, PSI campus director, stated in the release. “The American V-twin program is designed to train students to become versatile technicians and innovative thinkers, as well as learn how to access online resources like the Polaris information site to quickly find answers.”
Upon completion, PSI offers its students lifetime career placement through its employment services department along with recognition from Victory Motorcycle and S&S Cycles.
