Course Description

This 120-hour course equips the instructor candidate with the knowledge and skills to successfully instruct the Basic Police Motorcycle Operator course. Instructor candidates work through topics such as range location selection, layout and cone placement for each activity, coaching and evaluating motorcycle operator performance, and how to properly demonstrate riding skills. The instructor candidate will gain practical field exercise experience through the facilitation of a Basic Police Motorcycle Operator course and receive daily performance feedback based on their teaching and coaching performance. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be certified to customize their own agency training program to continue training internally.

This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements for Course #667375.
