The PMBI Association requires Level 1 instructors to re-train every three years, by attending a one-day course. This system is key in ensuring the PMBIA maintains consistent, professional teaching and guiding practices within the industry.
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 also includes a one year membership to the PMBIA and 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.
