A Passionate Educator in the Powersports Industry: Instructor Fabian Jackson


For Fabian Jackson, motorcycles are more than just a hobby — they're a life-long passion. Today, he's not only an instructor at MMI, but also a mentor and role model for aspiring technicians. His journey from student to teacher is a testament to his dedication and love for the powersports industry.

Passing on the Knowledge: Fabian’s Journey to Becoming an MMI Instructor

Fabian's journey began as a student at MMI. He was eager to immerse himself in the world of motorcycles with core training, then enrolled in various specialized training programs, including BMW Motorrad, Yamaha YamaPro®, and Honda HonTech. After graduation, he spent eight years honing his skills at various dealerships before returning to MMI as an instructor.

“I felt like I had made myself home by being here, so this is a dream come true," he says.

But to Fabian, the powersports industry isn't just about motorcycles. It encompasses a wide range of vehicles, including ATVs, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, and multi-utility vehicles. "This is not just motorcycles," he explains. "I would consider this a powersport industry."

One of the things Fabian loves most about his job is the opportunity to pass on his knowledge to others.

"Passing on knowledge in any aspect is great," he says. "There's no point in holding all that information and valued experience to yourself. Pass it on so this can continue."

Training for a Career You Can Be Passionate About

To Fabian, a career in the powersports industry isn't just exciting and motivating — it's fun. To those with a passion for the industry, he shares that it can feel a lot less like work and a lot more like doing what you love every day.

 "If you have a passion for this, if this is something that you want to do, then from my aspect, this is not work," says Fabian.
