The Genesee Valley Chapter will conduct its three-day Instructor Training School (ITS) in conjunction with its May Driving School at Watkins Glen International.
The purpose of the Instructor Training School is to give advanced students, who are ready to progress to the next level, an opportunity to learn about and experience instructing in a safe and supportive environment. Our program is designed to identify and train only top tier instructors. Candidates' driving skills and instructional abilities will be mentored and rated by our region?s most dedicated and accomplished instructors. Candidates who are accepted into the program will be assigned a dedicated mentor, and receive a manual, classroom instruction, and on-track instruction. The first two days of the program consist of alternating in-car role-playing with an ITS mentor-instructor and classroom sessions. At the end of the second day, the candidate's progress is evaluated, and if ready, the candidate will begin instructing a student on Sunday; otherwise, he or she will continue to work with their mentor. The classroom session encourages open discussion so that students can share their instructing experiences with fellow classmates and learn from each other. If you would enjoy the rewards of sharing your driving skills with others, and are ready to commit to promoting high performance driving in a positive and professional way, we welcome your application to participate in our program.
