Marine troops complete Highway Patrol Group Motorcycle Riding Course

On March 6, 2021, 14 Marine troopers, including the Marine Corps Chaplain, graduated from the Executive Motorcycle Riding Course (EMCRC) conducted by the Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG). PBGen. Alexander C. Tagum PNP, Director, HPG, graced the graduation as the guest speaker.

The Executive Motorcycle Riding Course was a 16-day basic-training course on motorcycle riding, particularly on Big-bikes – 400cc and above motorcycle. It aimed to enhance the driving skills of motorcycle riders to save lives from an accident due to lack of knowledge in motorcycle handling and maneuvers, traffic laws, and right attitudes while on the roads.

The course covered comprehensive skills training to develop muscle memory, quick decisions in dangerous situations, and confidence in riding a motorcycle.

MGen. Ariel R. Caculitan PN(M), Commandant, Philippine Marine Corps, a Master Rider, explained that riding a motorcycle is a complex yet fun journey. While everyone has the talent to ride a motorcycle, not everyone is skilled at riding them.

PBGen. Alexander C. Tagum PNP, Director, HPG, reminded everyone to keep safe always. All master tigers would always say, “Mag-ingat, mag-ingat, at mag-ingat.” PHILIPPINE MARINE CORPS
