Your MSF and your backing MSF, I'm not MSF I'm allowed to speak what I believe
letting students pass or bending the rules has been done and still does, I've seen it with my own eyes, so don't try to BS me about it. Does it happen in every class, no, do you do it? only you know that, not me. I would hope not
My opinion, make riders still take the sate test and a state testing facility, that will acomplish several things that are much needed
It will take the liability strains away from MSF, it will take the pressure off MSF from accident studies, ya know the ones saying more and more MSF passedd students are getting into accidents within 6 month;s opf passing the msf course, it looks bad and give anyone a reason to blame the msf.
you do realize as a rider coach you carry some of the liability yourself right? have you ever talked to a lawyer about protecting your assets in case a student gets injured and sues? you might want to, becasue the way some state laws are written you could still be sued personally. that was one myth we had and my wiffe and I had become instructors, but we had a liability umbrella so not particualrly worried about it.
this is my opinion, from what I have seen, read and been told . your may differ, it doesn;t make you wrong, just not as informed
do what you will, but at least do your research
I'll step back now as I'm talking to a wall
