Rich Oliver's Mystery School Secures California POST Funding For Motorcycle Officer Update Course
POST I Designation Allows California Police Departments To Receive Reimbursement for Motorcycle Training
Auberry, CA - Rich Oliver's Mystery School announced that their two-day Motorcycle Officer Update Course now holds the coveted Plan I designation from the California Peace Officers Standards and Training agency (POST). This new designation allows the participating California Police Departments to receive reimbursement for the enrolled Officer’s travel costs, per diem, class tuition and backfill.
This Police Motorcycle Officer Update course offers two days of training in an unique flat track/off road environment specifically designed for peace Officers. All classes are taught by five-time AMA 250 Grand Prix Champion Rich Oliver, at his private facility in Auberry, CA (30 minutes east of Fresno). This remote location allows full attention to riding and so improving the Officer's overall motorcycle control. The course is designed to teach turning, balance, sliding, braking, tight area U-turns, negotiating obstacles and pursuit techniques. Each class is limited to eight (8) Officers, allowing one on one instruction and many hours of riding to reinforce the lessons.
The curriculum further enhances the officer's ability to avoid accidents and injury, and to gain a greater level of control in pursuit situations over all types of road surfaces and terrain.
Sgt. Steve Delema from the Traffic Division of the Fremont, Calif, Police Department praised the POST class by stating, "The collision avoidance drills, and skills and confidence our personnel developed to control a sliding motorcycle over varying surfaces is priceless. This drill alone will save costs associated to work-compensation claims, equipment repair or replacement, and most importantly, the drill will reduce the number of injured Officers. Thank you again for putting together an advanced training course that is definitely a benefit for enforcement riding. Our Department has made your course an annual training event for all of our motorcycle riders."
