Free ATV?safety course being offered

July 16, 2011
The Inter-Mountain

The West Virginia University Extension Service 4-H Program will offer the All-Terrain Vehicle Safety Institute's (ASI) RiderCourse to help make ATV riding a safer activity.

Adults, as well as youths ages 12 and older, are welcome. The course usually costs $150, but it is being offered at no charge through a grant from the National 4-H Council. Although the program is being sponsored by 4-H, participants do not have to be 4-H members. ATVs will be provided for the training.

Four sessions are being offered on July 29 and July 30 at WVU Jackson's Mill State 4-H Camp at Weston. Four more sessions will be offered in Williamson on Aug. 5 and 6. Each session is limited to eight riders. Participants are encouraged to bring helmet, goggles, gloves, long-sleeved shirt, long pants and over-the-ankle boots.

The training requires each participant to take the "S" course online training at www.atvsafety.org/asi.cfm, and then complete a three-hour hands-on session to receive ASI certification. ASI certification means you can ride on any trail system in the United States.

Preregistration is required. Forms are available online at 4-hyd.ext.wvu.edu/events-forms/atv-rider-safety. For more information, call the WVU Extension Service Mingo County Office at 304-235-0370.
