Two motorcycle training programs provided by KTM AG receive the European Training Quality Label award

Today, two of KTM’s Riders Academy training programs were awarded the European Training Quality Label. The award was granted after a site visit and inspection by safety experts from the German Road Safety Council (DVR), a German NGO active in the field of road safety. To date, a total of 24 post-license motorcycle training programs have been certified in Austria, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The Academy, which was launched in 2018, provides courses that build on the latest empirical research on rider behavior and training, as well as the experience of Klaus Schwabe, one of the leading German experts in motorcycle safety. Training sessions are conducted in small groups of no more than six riders per trainer, and are open to motorcyclists using any brand of bike. The KTM Riders Academy plans to organise between 40 and 50 training sessions in Austria and Germany, involving about 300 motorcyclists

Commenting on the award of the European Training Quality Label, Stefan Pierer, President of KTM AG and current President of the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM) says, “I am delighted that the two KTM Riders Academy motorcycle training programs have received this important recognition at the European level. Training at our Academy aims to improve both the cognitive and the motor skills of the motorcyclist, increasing both safety and the pleasure of riding”.

Antonio Perlot, Secretary General of the European Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (ACEM), says, “The European Training Quality Label is granted to the best post-license training programs in Europe. It is one of the main elements of the motorcycle industry’s safety strategy, and we are confident that this initiative will help motorcyclists to easily identify the best training programs in Europe”.
