The course is approximately 64 hours. You must attend all sessions of the RiderCoach Preparation Course. You must also coach a minimum number of courses each year to remain certified. Successfully completing a RiderCoach Preparation Course does not guarantee a position with Motorcycle Training Academy.

Upon successful completion of the RiderCoach Prep, first aid certification is required prior to teaching your first class.


  • You must attend the Basic RiderCourse as a student within 6 months of your scheduled RiderCoach Prep.
  • You must shadow one of our Senior RiderCoaches for AT LEAST 1 full Basic RiderCourse.

Currently, the Colorado MOST program pays for this course. There is no charge to you. APPLY EVERY YEAR if you are still interested. Limited opportunities are available, HOWEVER new opportunities occur each season.


  • If we need RiderCoaches in your area, a representative of our office will contact you to arrange an interview.
  • Interviews take place throughout the season.
  • If you do not receive an invitation to an interview, please re-apply.
  • All applications are discarded at the end of the season, so please re-apply.
