Each ICP participant will be tested on this ability during their practical evaluation. In order to pass the ICP Level 2 course, participants must demonstrate understanding of the material, perform a teaching simulation, and pass a written test. PRE-REQUISITES: IMBA Level 1 certification, Current First Aid and CPR SKILL QUALIFICATIONS: Intermediate to advanced riders who can confidently execute and demonstrate mountain bike skills. See links below for prequalification information. Registrants should have five or more years of mountain biking experience, good communication skills, and be passionate about riding, helping others, and safe progressions. This class consists of a 3-hour evening classroom session (day 1) and 3 days of field work (days 2-4). A full schedule will be sent prior to the workshop. Participants are required to provide personal Mountain Biking equipment. If you need to rent a bike and/or helmet for the ICP, contact the host market for details.
