Welcome all BMW CCA and PCA
Instructors and Instructor Candidates


Open to all BMW CCA and PCA instructors and instructor candidates who are, or will shortly be, undergoing training to become instructors. 

GVC is joining forces with our Niagara Region PCA colleagues, and are delighted to be welcoming highly-regarded driving coach and data guru Peter Krause of Peter Krause Associates (  Peter will spend the morning discussing the challenges instructors face working with students of different skill levels in vehicles with performance capabilities we could only dream of a decade ago.  After lunch, he will turn to techniques for improving your own driving, including the use of vehicle data for personal and instructional purposes. 

Below is a link to the current working agenda for the seminar containing a bit more information about schedule and what will be covered.

P.S.  As a bonus, Peter has agreed to stay over to Sunday to give a special, half-day presentation on the use of data for those particularly interested in this topic.  It will be particularly germane to those of you who drive competitively.  Attendance will be very limited (14 participants), and there is a fee of $120 to compensate Peter and cover cost of a conference room at the Hilton for his presentation

If you are interested in this special Sunday seminar, please RSVP by email ASAP to Don Ehinger (
