British Cycling - Free NSITC

British Cycling's National Standard Instructor course has been accredited by the Department for Transport (DfT) and is supported by high quality resources and delivery materials developed by British Cycling, ensuring candidates receive value for money and a professional training package.
The National Standard Instructor (NSI) course is largely practical, delivered outdoors in the Bikeability Level 1, 2 and 3 training environments; ensuring candidates are fully prepared to start work as an instructor at the end of the course. The course involves formal assessment over the four days and a Post Course Assessment (PCA), which must be completed within six months of the initial four-day course.
