Melons' Better Driving employees have an important job! The more training they get for their job, the better they will do. For this reason, Melons' Better Driving is always on the lookout for ways to improve the talent of the employees. Every employee will undergo the following types of training:
Melons' Better Driving instructors all have actual years or decades of experience with track days, coaching, racing and/or more. In fact, every MBD instructor will go through the Motorsports Safety Foundation "Certified" instructor program, earning certification in coaching and driver/instructor professionalism. We take this very seriously! The program really is well put-together and will help make sure that Melons' Better Driving instructors have sufficient professionalism to be able to offer the best experience possible.
A Technological Understanding of Cars
Every Melons' Better Driving employee will have a high degree of technical skill and experience with cars. In fact, Melons' Better Driving was founded by a former mechanic whose passion for motorsports and racing left a desire for a different career. Drew actually graduated a college program to be a mechanic before switching careers. While we don't work on cars for customers, as we lack the insurance and shop space, we can certainly help prepare any car for the track.
First Aid Training & Safety Equipment
We never expect to have to use it, but, it never hurts to be prepared for the worst case scenarios. Anything from a bee sting, choking, seizure, medical condition or - though highly unlikely - a car crash could cause this training to become vital. Track days are very well organized and our local tracks are very safe, especially with our coaching, but nothing is ever completely safe. It's our job to mitigate the risk as much as possible, and being equipped with fire extinguishers, first aid training, and more, can really help to save lives and ensure everyone goes home with a smile, not in an ambulance. The likelihood it would ever come in handy is very, very low, but it's vital to a well organized event.
Melons' Better Driving employees and representatives are all trained to be as professional and helpful as possible. This is an ongoing process, drawing from in-house training as well as external training and practice. The mission is to always be improving. Never stop moving forward!
