GWRRA Rider Education
“Safety is for Life”
” To Save Lives Through Quality, World Class Education”
Our World Class Educational Program has many avenues to educate both our motorcycle community and the general driving public. The illustration to the right shows how our program is structured.
The GWRRA Rider Education Program (REP) is intended to make the motorcycle riding environment safer by reducing injuries and fatalities and increasing motorcyclist skills and awareness. The REP does not propose to have all the answers.
However, our close-working relationship with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), as well as additional GWRRA programs and studies, has provided a wealth of information for use in establishing a comprehensive Rider Education Program.
Through Commitment, Education and Application, we can reduce our accident rate significantly.
Listed below are several benefits of a fully implemented GWRRA Rider Education Program at the District and Chapter level:
- Increased rider knowledge
- Increased rider safety skills
- Prevention of accidents
- Reduced injuries
- Reduced fatalities
- Improved general public image of motorcyclists
- Enhanced enjoyment of motorcycle riding
- Enhanced motorcycle safety through Motorist Awareness public presentations
Both the motorcycle and motorist community are already realizing many positive benefits from the GWRRA Rider Education Program. Through the efforts of the Rider Education Officers and volunteers throughout the world, we will reach our goal of establishing the safest motorcycle environment possible.
MEDIC FIRST AID
GWRRA Rider Education has traditionally encouraged members to obtain and maintain certifications in First Aid and CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). These basic skills are easily learned, but may make the difference between life and death in the critical minutes before professional help can arrive. There are a number of fine providers of this type of training available, including familiar names such as the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association.
GWRRA is a recognized corporate provider of the MEDIC FIRST AID international® program. As such, our certified instructor members are able to provide this high quality program to other members at a very affordable cost. In addition to First Aid and CPR, many of the Districts are proud to have recently added an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) training option to the available courses.
Whatever your preferred provider, we strongly encourage you to get trained and stay current in your certification. “Education and Preparedness” are important steps in fulfillment of our motto, “Safety Is For Life.” If you would like to have more information on becoming a GWRRA MEDIC FIRST AID Instructor, contact your District coordinator listed below.
