The key to reducing injuries and fatalities to motorcyclists is education (and implementation of education). Road Guardians encourage all motorcyclists to become life long learners and to do all they can to avoid a crash from occurring. We also go one step further than many other safety programs by connecting motorcycle trauma first response as part of the solution. Out of the 18 million motorcyclists in the USA, ASM has taught 25,000. That leaves many more riders who really should know how to help a friend in a time of need. We have over 150 instructors in 32 states and have trained over 25,000 students but that leaves 17,075,000 who still need to be trained!
Recent instructor training classes were held in Northern Illinois by Rescue Riders and taught by Teresa McClelland AKA “Trauma Mama” from Arizona. The Santa Cruz, CA truing class was taught by ASM founder Vicki “Spitfire” Sanfelipo & another class will be taught Nov 7-10th in Big Bend Wisconsin at Road Guardians Headquarters. That class will add New jersey and Virginia to the map.
Now is the perfect time to plan training for your group. Classes are currently being scheduled for January – May 2014. Planning now will lead to a more successful spring class. Find out what it takes to be an ASM certified instructor or find an instructor to teach a class at:
