This free training offers the opportunity for applicants to become League Certified Instructors, who are in great demand and can charge $50/hour to teach bicycling and safety outreach. The training is fun but demanding as students learn how to teach bicycle safety and skills to new and returning bicyclists and youth. The seminar focuses on teaching and demonstration techniques that graduates will use with future students in the classroom and on bikes. Each student will have opportunities during the seminar to practice teaching others. The full course of instruction is conducted over multiple days with about 1/3 of that time spent on-bike, including a night riding session. The LCI Education seminar will be held over four days on March 3, and April 6, 7, and 8, 2018, at Inova Fairfax Hosptial in Fairfax. 

Information about the Pedestrian Safety Training class, including available dates and location, will be announced later. 

In exchange for this free training, which normally costs $500, applicants are expected to commit to participate in at least 2 community outreach events and to collaborate with regional safety partners in the future.

If you are bicyclist who also is a current or up-and-coming leader in your community and if you are willing to commit to training and supporting pedestrian and bicycle safety in Northern Virginia, we think you are a perfect candidate for this instruction.  We want those bicyclists willing to partner with community staff and leaders to provide outreach and help us reduce the unacceptably high number of pedestrian and bicycling deaths in the region.   

The organizers will review each application and select those most qualified. Applicants will be assessed on their ability to ride, commitment to community, and interest in outreach and teaching. Applicants should be comfortable working with people of differing backgrounds in small groups and one-on-one. Second language capabilities are highly desirable. 

Please apply now at the organizers’ webpageFor more information on LCI seminars, visit the League of American Bicyclists webpage
