The Skill Instructor Urban course fits the niche for those providing skills instruction and development within contained areas such as BMX and jump tracks, or small on-site facilities.
Taking key elements from the Trail Leader Award and the higher level Skill Instructor courses, the SI Urban enables volunteers and professionals to utilise and pass on CTC's vast knowledge and application of cutting edge skill development techniques.
