BIKE INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
Continually advancing the Global Standard for MTB Instruction
WHO WE ARE
The Bike Instructor Certification Program (BICP) offers professional training and certification for individuals who lead group rides or teach mountain bike skills clinics. The BICP builds on proven, successful methods, more than two decades in development. It is globally recognized and aims to establish a global standard for mountain bike skills instructor training.
With origins dating back to 1995, our training materials are built on 25+ years of coaching experience, skill development, and program building.
The BICP is demystifying the process of teaching mountain biking skills in a structured progression.
More than 400 BICP courses have been led globally, certifying 2500+ individuals. The BICP continually develops the curriculum and training for our Instructor Trainers to maintain high-quality standards.
Why the BICP?
With over 25 years of experience certifying MTB-Instructors globally, and a strong focus braking down skills, the BICP gives instructors hands-on-tools to make any skills clinic easier to follow and more effective.
Structured teaching plans, clear protocols for detecting and correcting riding errors, the fundamentals of biomechanics and stability, group management principles and Emergency Action Plans are just a small portion of what make the BICP Curriculum unique.
The goal of the BICP is to advance the global standard of mountain bike instruction, by increasing access to professionally trained and certified mountain bike instructors worldwide.
