The PMBI Association trains and certifies mountain bike Instructors & Guides to effectively teach mountain bike riding skills in both cross country and downhill environments, while guiding students safely on varying degrees of technical terrain. 

The Level 1 Instructor Certification

Two dates - May 29th - 31st  and  June 1st - 3rd, 2018

is for both new and experienced instructors alike, looking to learn how to skillfully teach and guide beginner to intermediate mountain bikers, in both cross country and downhill environments. New instructors learn the tools they need to safely and effectively teach, while experienced instructors will increase their level of skill and understanding in teaching and riding theory, that the PMBI Certifications uniquely provide.

A strong focus is given to learning teaching skills in their own right, to develop a sense of this all important part of a mountain bike lesson. As you learn and practice proven, modern teaching skills through the course, you’ll see how being a good rider is only one part of being a professional instructor.

Riding skills and theory are also covered along with plenty of time to practice as well as receiving personal feedback for your own improvement, each day. The three day course is practical-based, spending each day riding and teaching on the trails. Additional PMBI Workshops covering topics such as bike-fit, mechanics and first aid, take place at the start or end of each day, to further build your knowledge and skill set during the course.

PLEASE NOTE: This course includes a teaching and riding assessment. Please ensure you make yourself familiar with the riding and teaching standards, as well as the prerequisites before registering. Further information on these standards can be found at : http://www.pmbia.org/courses/level-1/
