System Overview


The PMBIA Certifications train instructors how to teach using modern, proven teaching theories and methodologies combined with the proven, skill-based model approach to gravity sports that provides a detailed analysis of the skills, physics and biomechanics within mountain biking.

This model gives instructors a deeper understanding of mountain bike skills and techniques while providing them with an organized framework of knowledge from which to teach. Together with the PMBIA Teaching Models, this enables mountain bike instructors to offer safer, more effective lessons to a greater variety of students, than ever before.

The PMBIA Certifications are unique in their ability to train instructors how to teach in both cross country and downhill environments, while also training and evaluating instructors on both their teaching and guiding skills to the highest standards in instructor certifications.
