The PMBI Association trains and certifies mountain bike Instructors & Guides to effectively teach mountain bike riding skills in both cross country and downhill environments, while guiding students safely on varying degrees of technical terrain.

The PMBI Association is the not-for-profit, governing body for mountain bike Instructor certification courses, within the mountain bike industry. It was established through a partnership between two industry-leading providers of mountain bike Instructor courses; ZEPtechniques and Endless Biking. These two companies have a combined experience of over twenty years of training and certifying mountain bike Instructors & Guides.

The PMBI Certifications are the most widely available and recognized certifications courses in the world today. The PMBI Association has established itself as the industry standard, building strong relationships with many industry leaders such as Whistler Bike Park, IMBA Canada, CASI and MTBA. The PMBI Association continues to develop it’s courses each year as we strive to offer the finest instructor programs in the outdoor sports industry.
