Are you on the fence about taking a MMSC training course this season? Maybe this feedback from a student who completed the Basic Rider Course (BRC) at Dakota County Technical College this season will help you make up your mind.
"Today I completed the BRC successfully with Bill and Don as instructors. Both of these guys are great, as in can't get any better. One of my fears going into this class is that expectations for the road exercises wouldn't be clear. Many educators rush through things and/or fail to explain what is expected. Don and Bill did an awesome job at every step explaining both what needed to be done and why. They answered my questions and those of others so that everything was very clear. The personal evaluation and tips throughout the exercises were extremely helpful so that not only could I improve on the spot but identify things I can improve on my own...I learned much more than I expected to."
