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, 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 For more information, call the WVU Extension Service Mingo County Office at 304-235-0370.
