The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has been contracted by Colorado's Department of Transportation for statewide rider training. The MSF’s RiderCourse Enrollment System (RES) will be the centralized course reporting, course administration and database management system for MOST, the state's Motorcycle Operator Safety Training program.
“RES is a proven business tool that MSF is providing at no cost to the state of Colorado to significantly reduce state and training site administrative costs, which directly benefits RiderCourse participants,” said Tim Buche, MSF president and chief executive officer. “RES also simplifies the sign-up process for prospective students, will reduce wait-times for MOST motorcycle training courses, and has the capability to transmit course completion information from a training site to CDOT within one business day.”
According to state traffic specialist Lynn Holly: “MSF has established depth and breadth of experience in managing statewide rider education programs and we’re looking forward to collaborating with them to bring the most sophisticated, research-based and proven rider training programs to prospective riders.”
The MSF will apply its national resources to manage the statewide program, including MOST vendor agreements, working with CDOT to implement an all-new policies and procedures manual, forming a MOST quality assurance team, executing MSF Rider Education Recognition Program agreements, updating all training range documents, and will be basing its operations in the Denver metro area.
The MSF has developed and supports 24 types of RiderCourses, each designed to meet current or prospective motorcyclists at their level of need, and are available to Colorado MOST vendors to offer at their training sites.
