Home » Education & Courses » Cycle Training » Instructor training » Instructor development

It is inevitable that at some point as a National Standard Instructor, you will need to move a group from its meeting point to a suitable training area. This may require you to lead a group on or off road, and may include road layouts with which the trainees are not familiar and have received training on.

Moving groups on road is a challenging and potentially hazardous activity. Doing it safely requires the instructors to have a good understanding of the on-road environment, be competent in conducting a dynamic risk assessment and to make sure trainees are well briefed on how the group will operate.
