Bike Park Solutions works together with PMBIA to provide the following services:

Mandatory Instructor Training/Certification Updates
Bike Park Solutions has seen firsthand what happens when great trails are implemented and no lessons program exists. An industry cannot survive and a community cannot be created without the essence of acceptance. This is why we strongly recommend a well-built lessons program and an accompanying certified instructor program.
We have partnered with PMBIA from British Columbia, Canada. Using the internationally recognized PMBI Certifications (the most widely available courses in the industry) from ZEP Techniques and bringing in many core concepts and elements from the highly successful MBIT curriculum from Endless Biking, the PMBI Association has developed a single, stronger, streamlined Instructor & Guides Certification System. By utilizing the training from PMBIA, you are making the decision that will set up your clients for a successful mountain bike experience, which will undoubtedly bring them back for more!
