The Mountainbike Professional certification integrates interpretive guide skills, Wilderness First Responder training and natural resource management with bike handling and mechanic skills. The student will spend time in both the classroom and on a variety of trail systems honing group management and bike-specific coaching skills for a career in the growing fields of mountain bike guiding, instruction, and sustainable trail development.
Our college professors are dedicated mountain bike professionals who provide students with both classroom and hands-on training in mountain bike skill development and trail design and construction.
