MCC-Maple Woods Motorcycle Safety Program gets lift from new coordinator

The Motorcycle Safety Program at MCC-Maple Woods is under new management – from a familiar face and longtime member of the MSP staff.

David Abrams, a senior team leader at Cerner Corporation, has served as an Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach with the program for the last five years. Now, he will be taking a new kind of helm – overseeing the entire program through MCC-Maple Woods’ non-credit community education department.

Abrams’ familiarity with the program means that students will still experience the same consistent education and service. But as he settles into his new role, Abrams said he is looking forwards to revamping the program.

“We want to improve the student experience when they come through our program,” he said. “We’re looking at upgrading our equipment and expanding the size and scope of our training range. We’ll also be offering more types of courses, such as an advanced course for more experienced riders and an introductory course for those who are still undecided about motorcycle ownership.”

Enrollment is now open at www.mcckc.edu/mwcycle. Courses begin the last weekend of March.
