Instructors sought

Warmer weather means more motorcycles on the road. If you’re an experienced rider and are interested in ensuring the safety of other riders, the Motorcycle Ohio program at Great Oaks Career Campuses needs you.

Motorcycle Ohio is looking for instructors to help novices learn to ride safely, help returning riders improve their skills and safety, and help experienced riders ride better.

Instructors have a desire to help people, strong communications skills, a good driving record, and considerable riding experience. Classes are offered regularly, so instructors are needed often.

Motorcycle Ohio provides 60 hours of training, and instructors for Great Oaks will also be qualified to teach at other Motorcycle Ohio sites throughout the state.
