HART - Ulysses Training 2011

HART has been delivering Post Licence training for experienced and returning riders for over 20 years.

Approximately one quarter of the 20,000 riders who attend HART train each year, already have a motorcycle licence. These riders are participating in one of HART's specialised post-licence training courses at a level that suits them.

Intermediate, Advanced and RoadSkills are the most established of HART's post-licence courses, although our Refresher Course for Returning Riders is also gaining popularity.

Whilst a number of Ulysses members and branches have taken advantage of HART training (and therefore their Ulysses training subsidy) this is only a small percentage of the total club membership. The majority of Ulyssians that do attend HART training say it is worthwhile and that they get something out of it.

HART is attempting to improve course availability, in both Metro and Regional Centres for Ulysses riders.

In Metro Centres (Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne)

HART offers:
- Refresher (skills training for Returning Riders)
- Intermediate (skills training for riders struggling with large capacity motorcycles)
- Advanced (skills training for competent riders already riding large capacity bikes)
- RoadSkills (4-6 hr on-road tuition and feedback for all riders).
- These public courses are run as per our timetable available on our website, or we can schedule these courses exclusively for a Ulysses Branch group booking. A group discount is available when minimum numbers can be attained.
- HART can also arrange club presentations on rider safety and the types of training on offer.

In Regional Centres and the other Capital Cities (where a manoeuvring area is available)

HART offers:

Half or Full day Skills training at Intermediate or Advanced levels;
- Bike control skills such as cornering, braking, swerving and throttle control are refined and improved on a training range
Half Day Skills Training with a Half Day RoadSkills ride in the afternoon;
- Bike control as described above in the morning
- RoadSkills consists of a four hour road ride where riders will discuss common crash scenarios and develop strategies to deal with typical motorcycle related hazards.
RoadSkills Courses (training range not required, but meeting room necessary);
- A six hour road ride where HART's highly qualified instructors will give individual feedback to riders, and assist in the development of safe riding strategies.

Ulysses Regional Timetable 2011

At HART, we believe training should be fun, informative and interesting. We understand people's enjoyment of riding is enhanced if training is non-threatening and based on sound educational principles.
