The PMBIA course is laughable. The entire test is based on your riding ability and not your ability to coach. The textbook is rife with spelling and grammatical errors, and needs many rounds of editing before anyone should teach from it. The instructor was a blowhard who couldn't shut up about being a park-rat at Whistler long enough to listen to anyone taking the course, and made a point to rag on and insult everyones equipment despite his own bike being in shambles.

The whole experience reflects poorly on PMBIA as an organization, and the insistence that it is the "ONLY" coaching program. Not even close to being worth the $
