It looks as though you need to be CPR and First Aid certified?

For those who may be interested in becoming a RiderCoach, let me let you in on a bit of the process. You need to find a sponsor school first. You will have to fill out the application for the DPS-MSU and get fingerprinted ($50). You have to have taken a BRC class within a year of your application and you do have to have CPR/1st aid certification (American Heart, Red Cross, Medic First-aid acceptable).

Once you get accepted by the state, then you begin a minimum of 4 apprenticeships with your sponsor school. There is also homework from the state involved. You do this for free (or at least I did). Once you have completed your minimum assignments, you send it all to DPS and wait for the next RCP (RiderCoach Prep) class. These are only offered twice a year (mine was in Victoria & the next is March 2015 in Amarillo). The RCP is 8 days and you have to attend all days! Again, this is on your dime!

If you pass the RCP, then you receive your MSF instructor card adn DPS-MSU number, allowing you to teach in Texas.

Hope you aren't doing this to get rich, 'cause I doubt it will happen!

None of us do it to get rich. You gotta want to help folks ride more safely and give something back to the sport. It'll take some time and effort, but anything worth anything does. Bottom line: you get PAID to be around and ride motorcycles and share your passion with other folks. If that doesn't float your boat maybe you're in the wrong sport.
The folks teaching at our ranges are the best in the state and are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. If you're interested in joining us, let Keith know at 281-897-7121 or send a PM.

MRH, I completely agree about doing it to give back. I've been in the public service sector for 20 years as a Paramedic and Firefighter. I am also a self taught rider. After I took the BRC, I was amazed I hadn't killed myself from the bad habits I had. My wife (who took the BRC in 2008) had been telling me I needed to take it, and I hate to say she was right!

I look at it as a way to continue to give back to others and try to keep us ALL safe out there. knows we are always seeing and hearing about motorcyclists getting injured/killed on the roads.

Although I'm partial to teaching with MTC and CHiPS, I know there are only so many spots for instructors. I'll drop you a PM about teaching. Considering I ride from Conroe to Rosenberg to teach, I'm not opposed to traveling around the Houston area to do so.
