PMBIA Instructors

In partnership with the Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association (PMBIA), Cycling BC now recognizes PMBIA certifications as meeting the requirements for a portion of Cycling BC’s Leadership Pathway.

The partnership aims to create mentorship opportunities, celebrate our province’s sports experts, and connect our communities in ways that will help more people enjoy their cycling experience.

PMBIA and Cycling BC partnership highlights:

  • Acknowledgement of PMBIA certification
  • Letters of Support from Cycling BC
  • Grants for coaching courses
  • Cross-promotion of coach development opportunities
  • Discounts on coaching courses

Cycling BC Recognition of PMBIA Instructor Levels

To fulfil the role of Cycling BC Club Assistant (YELLOW), PMBIA instructors must complete the following:

PMBIA Level 1 instructors

  • Complete basic pre-requirements (~$95)
  • Complete Club Theory A (online) ($75)
  • Attend Basic Skills or Club Skills: Mtn. Bike.*

* Contact Cycling BC to receive a discount code to register for an upcoming module FREE OF CHARGE ($100 value). 

PMBIA Level 2 instructors

  • Complete basic pre-requirements (~$95)
  • Complete Club Theory A (online) ($75)
  • May forgo both Basic Skills and Club Skills: Mtn. Bike.**

** PMBIA Level 2 instructors may audit either outdoor module FREE OF CHARGE ($100 value) for mentorship purposes. Please note, that those who wish to pursue the NCCP Club Head Coach (GREEN) status in the future are encouraged to attend both outdoor NCCP modules. 

Additional Support

Additional support services are available to Cycling BC members holding a PMBIA certification. See the tabs below for details.

PMBIA 1 instructors are encouraged to seek mentorship opportunities in their community by attending NCCP modules or other events (view calendar). In addition, if there is a professional development opportunity in your community that we can share with others, please let us know.

PMBIA-certified instructors are encouraged to log their credentials in the Coaches Association of Canada (CAC) LOCKER system. The PMBIA Level 1 course is recognized and provides 3 NCCP maintenance of certification credits. Although most helpful for leaders who already hold NCCP certification, coaches in-training can record their PMBIA participation for future reference. Get started by creating a LOCKER account at thelocker.coach.ca, then contact Cycling BC with proof of certification.

If you are interested in further coach training, consider attending the NCCP Club Theory B module to pursue NCCP certification and fulfill the role of Club Head Coach (GREEN) at a Cycling BC club. This module is facilitated online and helps you craft an annual plan for athletes participating in mass-start or competitive events.

All Cycling BC members may apply to access Coach Development grants ($250) and cover the cost of NCCP modules. In addition, once NCCP-certified (GREEN), applicants may apply grant funding to non-NCCP professional development opportunities like PMBIA 1 or 2 modules. Learn more about our grants here.

Cycling BC encourages all club assistant coaches supporting mountain bike athletes to pursue PMBIA Level 1 certification.

Cycling BC Club Assistant Coaches (YELLOW) who leverage our PMBIA partnership and bypass one NCCP outdoor module (Basic Skills or Club Skills Mtn. Bike) must maintain their PMBIA Level 1 certification. Complete the PMBIA Level 1 re-certification eLearning every 3 years to maintain your YELLOW certificate. Cycling BC encourages you to maintain your PMBIA annual membership through this time period, supporting PMBIA strategic goals and accessing their diversified membership benefits.

PMBIA 2 instructors are encouraged to seek mentorship opportunities in their community, and we invite them to audit the NCCP outdoor modules. Contact Cycling BC for a registration code to participate free of charge ($100 value).

The CAC’s LOCKER system also recognizes the PMBIA Level 2 certification and provides 3 NCCP maintenance of certification credits. Create an account and then contact Cycling BC with proof of certification.

PMBIA Level 2 instructors in good standing with the PMBIA may request a letter of support from Cycling BC to attend either of the following coach development opportunities:

  • Challenge the NCCP Club Head Coach (Comp-Intro) Certification (GREEN).
    • Learn more in the ‘provisions for special applicants’ section on our Become a Coach page.
  • Attend the NCCP Performance Theory module (BLUE).
    • An introductory module for coaches supporting provincial and national team athletes.
    • Facilitated online over six 3-hour video calls.
    • Available once annually in both English and French (November).

Cycling BC encourages all club head coaches (GREEN) and performance coaches (BLUE) supporting mountain bike athletes to pursue PMBIA Level 2 certification.

Cycling BC Club Assistant Coaches (YELLOW) who leverage our PMBIA partnership and bypass both NCCP outdoor modules (Basic Skills and Club Skills Mtn. Bike)  must maintain their PMBIA Level 2 certification. Complete the PMBIA Level 2 re-certification eLearning every 3 years to maintain your YELLOW certificate. Cycling BC encourages you to maintain your PMBIA annual membership through this time period, supporting PMBIA strategic goals and accessing their diversified membership benefits.

PMBIA 3 instructors are welcome to access the same opportunities as those with previous PMBIA certifications.
