The 4-H ASI ATV Rider Course helps riders increase their knowledge about safe riding practices and practice basic riding skills in a controlled environment, under the direct supervision of a licensed instructor. The course includes completion of a pre-ride inspection, starting and stopping, quick turns, hill riding, emergency stopping and riding over obstacles. Participants will also learn about protective gear, local regulations, places to ride and about environmental concerns.
The class is open to the first eight participants who register by Sept. 15. For more information or to register, call the OSU Extension, Ottawa County at 419-898-3631 or 1-800-322-4159.
This marks the first time that Owens is offering the program during the fall semester. The classes will be held Fridays from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Workforce and Community Services building on Tracy Road in Northwood.
Students attending the 10-week training program will receive instruction within the areas of electricity and photovoltaic systems and theory. Course content includes system sizing and construction, codes and standards, battery safety, interconnection safety, troubleshooting, and maintenance. Installation practices related to project management, adapting mechanical and electrical design, and system commissioning are also highlighted.
In addition, the hands-on course will include the design and installation of a grid-tied photovoltaic system and continued maintenance on an existing system at the college. Students successfully completing the program will qualify to test for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioner (NABCEP) PV Entry Level Certificate of Knowledge program.

Additional trainings being offered in the Magruder conference area this fall include:
Appointments will begin at 9 a.m. Recommended baseline screenings include stroke/carotid artery, atrial fibrillation, abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral arterial disease. The carotid artery screening uses ultrasound to identify blockages in the arteries of the neck – a leading cause of stroke. The atrial fibrillation screening checks for an irregular heartbeat and the abdominal aortic aneurysm screening looks for a ballooning of the largest artery in the body. Screening for peripheral arterial disease checks for blockages in the arteries of the arms and legs – a condition that leaves an individual at four to five times higher risk of heart disease.
Additional screenings may be added for a more comprehensive risk assessment. They include C-reactive protein, a blood marker for vascular disease and diabetes; complete lipid panel including HDL/LDL and total cholesterol; glucose, a measure of blood sugar levels that can determine a risk for diabetes; and an ultrasound screening for osteoporosis.
The cost is $140 for four screenings and $199 for all eight screenings.
To schedule an appointment or obtain more information, call 1-800-643-6188. Pre-registration is required.
