N.H. offers snowmobile, OHRV online classes

CONCORD — If you need to complete an Off Highway Recreational Vehicle and snowmobile safety course to get your New Hampshire safety certificate, you now have the option of completing the training online. Sign up at wildnh.com/OHRV/ohrv_online_ed.html.

The course is approved by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. It is the only mobile-friendly New Hampshire course that features both OHRV and snowmobile content and live-action video.

“The New Hampshire OHRV and snowmobile course is a great way for students to become educated online, at their own pace, while learning key safety information we find important for riding both OHRV’s and snowmobiles,” said Capt. John Wimsatt, OHRV/Snowmobile education and law enforcement coordinator for New Hampshire Fish and Game. “The course uses video, animations and more to teach those valuable lessons and emphasize the importance of respecting landowners and private property. Partnering with offroad-ed.com was a natural choice, and together we’re putting safety-conscious riders on the trails.”

The course is available on any device, so students can access the course online even if the only way they have to connect to the Internet is via their smartphone. Plus, the new mobile-ready course features live-action videos, realistic illustrations and interactive animations that make it easier and more fun to learn how to safely operate an OHRV or snowmobile. The course’s two safety video series teach about the appropriate OHRV and snowmobile riding gear, riding in various conditions, loading and unloading, plus much more.

“Our goal in developing a combined OHRV and snowmobile safety course was to create a comprehensive learning experience that would be fun for our students. In our video series, we use humor, where appropriate, to focus the student’s attention on the safety advice,” said Kurt Kalkomey, CEO of Kalkomey Enterprises Inc., which produces offroad-ed.com and snowmobile-ed.com. “We also wanted to avoid lecturing. Our content and videos are meant to engage students with opportunities to explore and select the best options for staying safe while operating their OHRV or snowmobile. This helps students develop true understanding rather than just memorizing the lesson.”
