Detail of outcome

  • introduce changes to the CBT standards checks to focus on core trainer competencies of lesson planning, risk management and teaching and learning strategies in line with the National Rider Trainer Standard
  • make changes to the CBT certificate to reflect a course undertaken on an automatic machine and recommend that riders take further training if they want to ride a geared motorcycle
