REQUEST FOR QUOTE
NATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM INITIATIVE (NTPI) – Illustrator Support
Release date: July 25, 2022
Deadline for Submission: August 08, 2022, no later than 4 pm EDT.

Introduction

The MCC Off-Road Council works collaboratively with provincial off-road riding federations/associations and other stakeholders in fostering an integrated, national approach to deal with the range of public policy and safety issues facing off-road and dual-sport motorcyclists. These issues include trail closures, land access, sound emissions, safety, and junior riders.

We are currently working on the development of a comprehensive Off-Road Rider Training Program for new and returning riders.

The goal of the MCC / ORC National Training Program would be to assemble and promote a national training program whereby master coach candidates can be vetted and provided the appropriate training experience and certification for them to train and certify coaches across Canada who in turn provide instruction to riders and upon completion successful candidates will receive a certificate of competency.

Our goal is to create a national training program that meets the needs of all Canadian coaches and riders (new / returning). A safe, controlled program with a good student-coach ratio will answer many of the challenges faced today in Canada.

The program at a high level would speak to the following deliverables:

  • Master Coaches.
  • Coaches.
  • Training organization.
  • Oversite bodies. – ORC, MCC, FIM
  • Member insurance.

MCC History

There was a need for a national organization to foster the growth and development of motorcycling in Canada, to dispel the myths and misconceptions about motorcycling and to lobby for changes to restrictive legislation. In June 2004 organizations gathered at a founding congress for what was then called the Motorcyclists Alliance of Canada (MAC). They signed an agreement in principle to come together with manufacturers and distributors to create a new national association to serve motorcyclists and the motorcycling community in Canada. Shortly thereafter, this organization was renamed the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada.
