TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAMS IN MOTORCYCLE EDUCATION IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES OF THE UNITED STATES

The purpose of this study was to examine the nature of teacher preparation programs in motorcycle education as offered in the colleges and universities of the United States, and to suggest improvement for such programs based on the findings. Two questionnaires were used to obtain information. One questionnaire was sent to the fifty State Departments of Education and the District of Columbia to determine: (1) course content and certification requirements relating to content of college and university motorcycle education courses, and (3) state financial support for motorcycle education. The second questionnaire was sent to 106 colleges and universities, selected because they were know to have motorcycle education programs. One section solicited information concerning (1) qualifications of instructors of motorcycle education, (2) attitudes pertaining to motorcycle, (3) financial reimbursement to schools participating in workshops, courses, and seminars, and (4) safety related activities. Another section sought information concerning (1) aspects of the motorcycle education instructor courses, (2) evaluation of the course and instructors teaching the course, and (3) benefits obtained from successfully completing the motorcycle education instructor course.
