IPMBA Training Courses 

IPMBA’s training and certification courses range from 3-5 days in length.  These comprehensive, multi-day courses provide essential training for public safety personnel in general and specialized bicycle operations.  Course attendees may attend workshops on Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday at no extra charge (schedules permitting), and everyone will have a chance to test their mettle in Friday's Obstacle Course Competition, followed by the Graduation and Awards Ceremony.  For full course descriptions, including model schedule, pre-requisites, equipment requirements, and testing procedures, visit the training page. Current IPMBA membership required for all training courses.

IPMBA Workshops 

Offering essential, dynamic, and innovative on-bike sessions AND insightful and information-packed in-class workshops, the IPMBA workshops are ideal for new and experienced police, EMS, and security cyclists as well as supervisors and administrators.  Workshops are included in the fee for multi-day courses (schedules permitting).  A 2.5-day (Thursday-Saturday) workshop-only option is also available.  All participants are invited to compete in Friday's Obstacle Course Competition, followed by the Graduation and Awards Ceremony.
