LCI Certification Seminar Guide
General Information and Study Guide
The BikeEd League Cycling Instructor (LCI) Certification Seminar focuses on developing skills for instructing a particular group. Technical bicycling knowledge is not emphasized in the Seminar. Therefore, it is essential that all participants bring a common bicycling background to the Seminar. This is accomplished in several ways.
Passing BikeEd Road I with a score of at least 85% is a prerequisite for the LCI Certification Seminar. Road I should be taken through a certified LCI near you: http://www.bikeleague.org/cogs/resources/findit/index.php
Once they are signed up for a seminar, applicants receive a pre-seminar examination as well as other study material including the League Guide to Safe & Enjoyable Cycling, Enjoy the Ride DVD and LCI Manual. Because the book and DVD contain basic bicycling knowledge and skills for all courses, League Cycling Instructors refer to them routinely in their instruction and thus need personal copies. The pre-seminar examination must be completed and submitted to the seminar trainer no later than ten days prior to the seminar.
Again, it is imperative that candidates become thoroughly familiar with BikeEd principles before completing the pre-seminar evaluation exam. Completing a Road I Class, Enjoy the Ride DVD, League Guide to Safe & Enjoyable Cycling.
We are confident that if you master the information cited above you will be prepared to learn instructional techniques during the LCI Seminar. We hope you find this a rewarding investment of your time. This information will also aid you in the completion of the self-administered pre-seminar examination.
