The revised National Standard for Cycle Training has now been approved by the Cycle Training Standards Board (CTSB).
The new standard may be taught immediately, though schemes may continue to teach the original standard until 31 March 2013. All schemes must teach the new National Standard from 1 April 2013.
The process has involved many individual instructors, Bikeability schemes, instructor training organisations and key professional bodies represented on the CTSB.
A short introduction for the standard outcomes will now be written and the Bikeability and instructor training manuals will be revised with an aim to publish in January 2013.
