As the ATV market has expanded, private industry and government agencies are increasingly using ATVs in their daily operations. Law enforcement, military installations, land management, rescue operations, oil production and farming use ATVs as their daily workhorses in varied utility applications. The need to have their employees trained in ATV rider safety became apparent and is also available through ASI. Some organizations may additionally find that an in-house ATV safety program is justified. To enroll in an ATV RiderCourse, call the national, toll-free enrollment number, 1-800-887-2887.
