SSM delivers mandated programs on behalf of MPI, and MPI funds the delivery of the Mature Driver and Snowmobile/ATV presentations. MPI also is the Founding Partner of Operation Red Nose Manitoba.

This course encourages participants to evaluate their current driving patterns and identify ways to change them. It includes examining driving choices, the relationship between speeding, driving efficiently, seatbelt use, alcohol and other drugs, and more.
Drivers under 25 are at a higher risk of being involved in a vehicle collision. This course helps young drivers to identify actions they can take to stay in control behind the wheel and understand the consequences of poor judgment and unnecessary risk-taking.
This interactive classroom session covers techniques for preventing collisions, driver attitude and impairment, intersections, passing and aggressive driving. It aims to remedy problems that lead to collisions and other incidents.
