What class do you need? That depends on your situation. If you are a licensed rider, you do not have to take an entry-level Basic RiderCourse, and can go directly into an intermediate-level training class. We often recommend that you take the BRC2 and the ARC back to back. The BRC2 will help you hone your skills that you will put into practice in the ARC. If you are a fairly new rider, or someone getting back on the bike after a long break, you might want to take the BRC2, go practice for a while, and then take the ARC a few months later.
