Minnesota offers a wonderland of opportunities for snowmobiling and off-roading, but riders need to be safe. With two new online safety courses, Minnesota students can complete their training online from the comfort of their homes.
Snowmobile riders can complete the classroom portion of their required snowmobile safety education entirely online at www.snowmobile-ed.com/minnesota.
ATV and OHM riders have similar options for their required off-road safety education, with an online course at www.offroad-ed.com/minnesota.
These official courses are approved by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
For each course, young riders must complete an in-person field test in addition to the online curriculum, but students over 16 can complete the course entirely online. This allows students to be safe and get out on the trails faster.
“Minnesota has so many opportunities for students to enjoy the outdoors. We wanted to make sure our courses were fun and engaging while also teaching all the essential information to ride safely,” said Mitch Strobl, Vice President at Kalkomey Enterprises, LLC, which produces offroad-ed.com and snowmobile-ed.com. “We take education seriously; that’s why we invest in award-winning videos, animations, and more—we want students to gain the knowledge they need to be safe and responsible operators.”
The courses are responsive and available on any device or smartphone with Internet capabilities, so students can learn at their own pace wherever they are. Each course also features exciting live-action videos, realistic illustrations and animations that make learning safe ATV/OHM or snowmobile operating a fun and interactive experience.
The course is Minnesota-specific, with lessons revolving around the local trails that students will be riding on. Lessons cover topics such as off-highway motorcycle operation, Class 2 ATV operation, how to dress for winter weather, and more.
