Compulsory Basic Training Element C – On-site Cone Layouts
A daunting prospect
For new and inexperienced Compulsory Basic Training Instructors who are just starting out, trying to remember everything can be a daunting prospect. When new instructors compare themselves to an experienced old hand, it can feel as if they will never remember what to do!
That is why Lesson Plans, Methods of Instruction and Compulsory Basic Training Diagrams are so important. They show a route through each lesson and the more they are used and studied, the easier it is to remember lesson content. It is like learning to ride a motorcycle; the more you practice the easier it gets.
Unfortunately this can also have its downfalls. Bad habits can creep in if you don’t have a set lesson plan or objective and the more you practice the worse it gets.
The CBT Element C On-Site Cone Layouts are the perfect start to forming good habits. Not only do they give a brief overview of each lesson but also give you a guide to laying out the cones. Cone layout during Element C is so important as during each exercise, only the exact amount of cones should be used.
Motorcycle Instructors should put themselves in the shoes of a nervous student. Too many cones laid out can be confusing to navigate around.
By having clear objectives and a good delivery, students will know exactly what is required of them. They can learn in a stress free environment. Instructors sometimes forget what it is like to be a student. Going back to basics as an instructor is sometimes necessary to improve lesson delivery.
The CBT Element C On-site Cone Layouts offer a great foundation. They can be adjusted to suit the size of the training area and the needs of the student. They’re a really effective training tool when used in conjunction with your Lesson Plans. It also gives the student a visual aid prior to beginning each exercise.
