What Our Students Are Saying

  • “In field exercises helped me better understand class concepts.” – V.B.
  • “Teachers are very knowledgeable and they are able to explain formulas in terms that make it easy to understand and use for the normal accident investigator.” – C.B.
  • “I would recommend prospective motor officers first take this type of course prior to attending motor school. A lots of valuable knowledge can be taken away from this course and applied not only toward investigations, but also toward motorcycle operation.” – M.C.
  • “A lot of information provided even for someone familiar with motorcycles. Made as simple as possible through exercises and working through scenarios. This was an informative class and even being a motor officer and general motorcycle enthusiasts I still found it very informative and interesting.” – J.W.
