AustCycle recently headed to Guyra to run a Level 1 Teacher Accreditation Program, meaning six more people are now on their way to being accredited AustCycle Teachers.
Many of the participants were there as part of the Federal Government’s Healthy Communities Initiative (HCI), which means more Australian’s who are at risk of obesity or health problems will now have access to cycle training.
The two-day course was held over September 22 to 23 and was run by AustCycle Presenters Rachel Sipple and Sue Wines.
AustCycle’s Level 1 Teacher Accreditation Program course trains Teachers to provide a wide range of cycle training programs from beginner bike control through to advanced traffic skills.
Stephen Griffith, Healthy Highlanders Coordinator, said it is hoped the 2-day course will encourage more Guyra residents to take up cycling as part of the Healthy Communities Initiative.
“This was a fantastic opportunity for people in the community who would like to be trained as AustCycle instructors to be subsidised to undertake training as part of the Healthy Highlanders program,” Griffith said.
