National Standard Instructor

All training courses are currently suspended
As we have now taken the decision to cancel all group activities, it means we have unfortunately had to take the decision to suspend all training courses, initially until August 31st.
We hope to be able to deliver training courses after the end of August, once government advice permits us to.
Please get in touch with the Training Team if you have any queries about future courses or current bookings.

This four-day course prepares you to deliver National Standard cycle training - also known as Bikeability - across all levels and age groups. It is the nationally recognised qualification for general cycling skills. With a mixture of classroom-based and hands-on learning, the course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to be a cycle trainer. 

To become a qualified NSI you will need to undergo an assessment at a later date.
