league-logoThe Lawrence-Douglas County Health Department and City of Lawrence are bringing the League of American Bicyclists to Lawrence, KS, to offer their national League Certified Instructor training course.

Get certified, insured and equipped to teach:

  • – Basic to college level bicycle skills and safety
  • – Motorist education courses

League Certified Instructors (LCIs) are experts in bicycle education and safety. LCIs teach independently (freelance) and offer classes through schools, parks, bike shops and clubs. Along with certification to teach classes, you’ll receive access to a network of resources including videos, training models, and listserves exclusive to LCIs.

Cost for the training is $300. The Health Department has funding to pay the fees for eight individuals. These individuals will be required to provide 30 hours of bicycle skills and safety lessons in the community. The deadline to apply is April 1 and can be done at https://lawrence.wufoo.com/forms/league-certifiedinstructor-application/.
