Gearing Up Off Road can be delivered in a number of places including clubs, schools, outdoor education centres as well as MTB centres.

Those interested in delivering the Gearing Up Off Road programme must attend a two day training course.

Day 1 of the two day course focuses on each of the sessions delivered in the programme with time being spent on basic mountain biking techniques. The morning of Day 2 will provide the candidates with the opportunity to deliver a Gearing Up session to their course colleagues.

Candidates who do not hold a Mountain Bike leadership award will gain some basic leadership skills on the afternoon of Day 2. This experiential section of the course is not intended as a substitute for a recognised Mountain Bike leadership award. 

On satisfactory completion of the Gearing Up instructors course, candidates will be able to operate as a Gearing Up Off-Road Provider running the Gearing Up Off-Road Programme.

The cost of the two day Gearing Up Off Road Instructor training course is €120 / £100


Individuals interested in attending the two day Gearing Up Off-Road instructor course are required to hold a Cycling Ireland Foundation Level coaching qualification, Level 1 coaching qualification or a Mountain Bike Leadership (TCL or MBLA) qualification prior to attending training. 

Where an individual attends and passes the Gearing Up Off-Road course with only a foundation coaching qualification they will be qualified to deliver the programme but only with a qualified Gearing Up Instructor who has a Level One or Mountain Bike Leadership qualification. Therefore they can only instruct on their own on completion of the Level One or Trail Cycle Leader course.
