TRAINING

– IPMBA EMS CYCLIST COURSE

This basic course of instruction for EMS personnel consists of 4 consecutive days (minimum of 32 hours) of mountain bike training.  Safety, job performance, and efficiency are at the root of this training program. EMS personnel on bikes can frequently respond more quickly than those in motor vehicles, especially in congested urban areas and in crowds. They are also effective in search-and-rescue operations, such as those resulting from natural disasters. Students learn basic and emergency bike-handling skills, riding single and in pairs under various traffic conditions, ways to effectively and safely pack equipment, techniques designed to safely handle EMS scenes, and personal safety techniques. This course is a must for EMS personnel seeking to develop and improve their riding skills and their use of the bike on the job.

Requirements:  Applicants must be currently assigned to bike patrol, officers applying to become members of a bike unit, or members of a department considering use of the bicycle.  All students will be “on duty” while attending the training and the course registration form will be completed by an authorized department supervisor prior to the student being able to participate. 

Testing Procedure:  Students must: participate in all practical exercises, be able to successfully demonstrate all of techniques to the satisfaction of the Instructor(s), and pass the written examination by a score of 80%.

Certification:  Students who meet the qualification standards will be issued a certificate of completion from Trident until the association’s certificates are issued.
