Police Motorcycle Instructor   

This course is intended for the police motorcycle officer responsible for motorcycle training within an agency. It will also assist you in upgrading your department's current motorcycle training program.

You will participate in skill developing exercises during the first week of instruction. You will then learn how to set-up programs in your department which will ensure that only the most capable officers are assigned to the motorcycle unit.

Prior to successful completion of the course, each instructor candidate will be evaluated on a timed obstacle course. In addition, you will participate in extended rides where you will be exposed to several different riding situations. Tactical shooting situations will be practiced and special problems in police motorcycle use will be addressed.

In addition, you will learn skills necessary to improve your peak performance in critical motorcycle operations such as alarm/stress response, tactical breathing, heart rate variability and visualization techniques.

You will be given special projects involving range layout, scheduling and setting-up a departmental training program. Instructor techniques will be discussed and a unit of instruction will be conducted which will be critiqued by the IPTM staff.

The course is designed for the operator of a two-wheel motorcycle with a minimum displacement of 500 cc.
