DESCRIPTION

An IPMBA certified course is becoming the only basic police cycling course recognized by many state law enforcement education certification boards.  But what training is there beyond the basic Police and EMS Cyclist course.  We will build on those basic skills while adding new a twists to training.  Certified IPMBA instructors (PCIs) teach the curriculum for students to receive new and innovative looks at how we view riding obstacles.  They will learn how to size up obstacles and evaluate the rider’s individual riding proficiency to determine bail out points and eliminate possible injuries. 

This course emphasizes learning new skills and processes the student can take home with them to continue their training and their skill building.  We will work with advance skills, obstacle clearing, scenario based training, Search and Rescue techniques, off road skills, and hands on maintenance.   

Physical Requirements

All students must be able to complete the basic skills in the PC I or EMSC I course.  The first day of class will begin by building on top of the basic skills learned in PC/ EMS I.
