3-Day Level 1 Certification

The Level 1 course trains both new and experienced instructors 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.

Each day of the three-day course, instructor candidates will learn riding skills and theory, have plenty of time to practice, and receive personal feedback for your own improvement. 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 skillset 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/


1-Day Level 1 Recertification Course

The PMBIA certifications are valid for three years. If you wish to remain up to date you must either take a development module, the next level of certification course, or a Re-certification course, before your certification becomes older than three years. This ensures our members maintain a minimum level of competency and skill, ensuring the PMBIA upholds the professional industry standard.

The one-day Re-certification course is also the perfect way to update your knowledge to the latest teaching and riding techniques in the industry, to sharpen your own skills and get some feedback from the best instructors out there.

The course provides access to all the PMBIA Course Materials and Level 1 Worksheet.

The day begins with a review of the Level 1 worksheet (to be completed prior to the course commencing) and a bike set-up review. Moving onto the trails, the morning will be spent reviewing the skill-based example lessons from the Level 1 course, along with the relevant teaching and guiding theory.

Before and after lunch, candidates will gain a chance to practice teach the skill-based lessons. The day will wrap up with a review and another practice teach of the Level 1 Foundation Maneuvers and a brief workshop on First Aid Training & Mechanics.

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/


1-Day Level 1 Teaching Kids Module

The one-day L1 Kids Teaching Module as a professional training module to further the skills and knowledge of PMBI Level 1 Instructors, specifically for teaching kids.

This training module is perfect for Level 1 Instructors working regularly for kids mountain bike programs.

Instructors will spend the day exploring the Level 1 content in more detail, as it relates to kids. More time will be spent discussing the different teaching considerations for the different physical and mental conditions of each specific age group.

Instructors will see and practice different kids teaching scenarios as well as explore trail and guiding options for each specific age group.

1-Day Group Ride Leader Course

The PMBI Ride Guide is a one-day training course designed for club volunteers or local riders who wish to take other people on organized, group rides. The course provides the necessary training to learn how to organize a ride, beginning with a meet ’n’ greet, bike check and safety talk. Guides will learn how to assess riders’ skills, perform bike checks and warm-ups safely, allowing them to plan and execute a safe, fun ride.

The course will include an online pre-course worksheet, complete with reading materials to begin your training before we even see you. Topics such as risk management, class size and terrain choice will also be discussed, as well as a chance to practice guiding the group, to gain some feedback on your own personal guiding, risk management and communication skills.

Additional workshops throughout the day will also discuss the recommended mechanic and first aid skills required by guides, and how to find this training, if necessary.

The day will mostly be spent on the trails, riding bikes and learning outside. It’s a fun day with great people and also a good chance to get some tips and feedback on your own riding skills.
