The School Programs
Our Bicycle Education Instructor Training is based on the Bike Ed resource, developed by VicRoads for use in schools. The course is intended for instructors who are involved in the planning and conduct of safe cycling programs in primary and secondary schools.
The Victorian Department of Education & Training policy states that, to provide a cycling program, schools must ensure staff involved in the program are experienced and preferably qualified in bicycle education; and have at least one staff member who is qualified in bicycle education.
Training for Instructors
Successful completion of the full 2-day course results in accreditation for school based bicycle programs. The accreditation lasts for 5 years.
Training for Assistants
Relevant training is offered over the two mornings of the scheduled instructor courses for parents or other persons interested in assisting schools with Bike Ed.
Re-accreditation Training for Instructors
The Bicycle Education Instructor Training accreditation is valid for five years. Before the expiry of 5 years, a 4½ hour re-accreditation course can be completed to renew accreditation.
