The PMBI Level 3 course is for experienced instructors and coaches in the Mountain Bike Industry who are either already, or wishing to learn more about, coaching high-level riders on a long term basis. The course will provide the tools a Skills Coach needs to effectively train riders who are working towards, or are already competing, at the local, provincial, national or world cup level.
It is the aim of the PMBI Level 3 course to complement and support existing coaching certification programs, such as those provided by the Canadian Coaching Association, to provide mountain bike coaches the full detail of information and tools they need to deliver the best possible results in their riders and athletes.
The Level 3 course largely focuses on training a coach to assess and develop the technical skills of their rider, or athlete through a long term plan. Furthermore, PMBI Level 3 Skills Coaches will be able to train their athletes how to coach and analyze themselves, making for an incredibly efficient athlete-coach relationship; a critical component to any successful coaching outcome.
Many elite riders/racers (amateur and pro) are naturally very fast on a bike. It is the coach's job to be able to critically assess their athletes performance in terms of their mental, physical and technical abilities, preparation and performance, then plan and coach accordingly; to make them even faster while maintaining their consistency and safety.
