What: Expect a full day of training & testing for “cross-over” BICP Level 2 certified instructors. This instructor recertification course includes our most current materials such as updated key teaching points, static holds, demonstrations, and progressions.
Why: A demand from the community has shown an increase in interest in our sport and the demand for great mountain bike instructors is needed. Expand your knowledge and learn new tools to become a stronger and more well-rounded instructor.
The Bike Instructor Certification Program is building bridges and community with our new “Cross Over” courses. These courses are offered to members of the mountain bike community that may have certifications from other recognized organizations. We invite you to join the BICP family and take our “Cross Over” courses.
