To join the course you must:
  • be a competent cyclist — i.e. ability to manoeuvre in complex infrastructure such as multi-lane roundabout (up to Level 3 NS Bikeability). If you are not sure of your skill level it may be useful to experience a 1:1 cycle training session before taking part in the course. Your own cycling skills will be continuously assessed throughout the course.

 

  • Possess a roadworthy bike which you can bring to the Instructor course, as the course includes practical sessions as well as classroom activities.

 

On successful completion of the course you will be a provisionally accredited Cycle Instructor. The course price is £500, which includes the cost of 1 x post course observation and 1 x post course assessment (which should be sufficient to achieve full qualification within 12 months of the course.)
