If you are hoping to one day make a career out of the ATV and off-road industry (or just get more involved with your local club), the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) is currently taking applications for the Spring OHV Recreation Management Course at Marshall University.
The spring semester OHV Recreation Management courses are PLS 451/551: Planning and Design of OHV Parks; and PLS 453/553: Operation and Management of OHV Trails Systems. The information in these courses can be invaluable for both agency personnel as well as the enthusiasts. The winner of the scholarship will be able to choose one of the two offered courses for this spring’s semester.
The scholarship is being administered by the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council. The applications are due in the NOHVCC office on Dec. 23, 2011. NOHVCC will review the applications and choose a winner in the shortest amount of time possible. Spring courses begin Jan. 9, 2011.
