Michelin Tire and ADTSEA Workshop Announcement
March 20th, 2017
Driver Education School Owner, Instructors, Administrators or Traffic Safety Professionals:
The American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association (ADTSEA), the professional association which represents traffic safety educators throughout the United States has received a grant from a leading tire manufacturing company, Michelin. This grant will help us offset some of the costs of a one day workshop on tire safety. The workshop is for driver education instructors, school owners, administrators or traffic safety professionals . It will be held in Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday, May 12, 2017 from 8 am - 4:00 pm at the Falls Event Center. Your cost for this workshop will be: NETSEA members $30.00 or Non-Members $50.00. Registration will be limited to the first 30 paid participants received by April 24th.
As part of the workshop each instructor who participates will receive a complimentary copy of the ADTSEA 3.0 Driver Education Curriculum, including printed materials and a DVD with slides and videos. The curriculum will include a newly developed lesson on tire safety and maintenance to utilize in the classroom, which will help Michelin achieve their goals, through their Beyond the Driving Test Campaign to have all 50 states include detailed tire safety information on checking tire pressure and tread depth in their individual driver's education curricula by 2020. The information in the lesson plan will help young drivers understand why tire safety is so important and will provide "how-to" information regarding checking tire pressure and tread depth.
The workshop will highlight how to incorporate the tire safety and maintenance lesson into the ADTSEA 3.0 Curriculum and how to teach tire safety to new drivers. A professional driver education teacher will conduct the workshops and a Michelin tire safety expert will be present during the workshop to answer questions and provide hands on activities. There is also an outside component to this workshop.
