"I HIGHLY recommend that anyone working as a mountain bike guide or instructor take the IMBA ICP Level I and Level II certification courses regardless of what they think they already know and what they already do everyday! As a mountain bike touring and instruction company owner, I will be more apt to hire a new staff if he/she is IMBA ICP certified."

"This course should be required of all who teach or guide. It's not only informative; it's fun and helps us be consistent with language and standards. Great job!"

"I've been successfully teaching MTB skills clinics for about a year, but when I heard about the ICP course I jumped on it. I wanted the IMBA-certified Instructor credential so that prospective clients would know that I've had specific training from the leader in the industry. Taking the ICP course I learned their standard teaching methods and it gave me more skills progressions which means that my clients may learn the skills even quicker. And now, when I have a big clinic and need help from another instructor, I know that anyone with this certification will be on the same page as me and can fill in without a big learning curve. Taking the course also reinforced my belief that most mountain bikers are really cool people!"

"We were consistently seeing minor accidents and injuries for participants in the mountain biking course at our Camp. Looking to help our staff create a safer, more professional environment, we sought help from IMBA. Through their Instructor Certification Program, our staff learned how to properly judge trails, teach riding skills, and lead safe rides for our guests and campers. I would highly recommend their training courses for any summer camp staff leading and teaching mountain biking."

"I want to say the class was excellent! This class has given me the confidence to put into words what I have taken for granted - riding bikes. As an experienced bike fitter and someone who teaches a bit of cycling in my fit sessions this gave me so much more insight and practical practice. And as a 20 year rider / racer of kinds it has taught me some valuable basics. This past weekend gave me the opportunity to show off my skills as I helped out with some clinics during our WYDAHO MTB Festival. We have also launched a touring business this past year and this class will give me more tools for the instruction tool bag as well as great credibility with IMBA. Again, nice job to all involved with this program!"

"I have over $10,000 invested in mountain bikes, who knows how much more in accessories, and this is the best money I've spent on the sport!"

"I learned tons and advanced my abilities on my bike, can't wait to go out there and work on my skills more. I loved the way the training kept building and building upon it'self, kept things very well organized for the learning and certification to occur.  Thanks again to IMBA for offering this wonderful training/certification to those of us out here wanting to spread this disease called 'Love to Mountain Bike'."
