I had been riding for years when I took the MSF course and it was invaluable. Here in PA it's free which didn't hurt, but it really teaches a lot of basics on small bikes (250cc in my state), and out on the road I've had to use some emergency maneuvers more than once that I first learned at the MSF and practiced on my own afterwards (thankfully). If he can get into one of those courses it will help him a lot and might even get him an insurance discount. Hope he loves it and stays safe and doesn't give you any gray hair! And like Swifty says, videos are a big help as well and there are a ton of them out there.
