Advanced MTB Bike Leader Award
Leading MTB groups into high and remote areas is a significant undertaking. The consequences of things going wrong increase several-fold, and the knowledge and application of Cycling UK's best practice principles becomes critically important.
Riding is just one of the areas you will develop as a Young Leader
Ideal for those of 14 to 18 years of age, this course initiates the development of some of the personal and teamworking skills you will need in later life, using the context of mountain biking.
Fast Tracker
For those holding MIAS, SMBLA mountain bike leader qualifications or OTC mountain bike leader training courses and an extensive background in mountain biking and the outdoor education arena, the Fast Tracker system is a rapid way to achieve CTC qualifications.
