Safer Cycling Calgary is experiencing growth in demand and we are recruiting Assistant and Certified CAN-BIKE Instructors. 


Assistant Instructor Job Description: 

Assistants are desperately needed for 2018 to deliver Level 1 courses, mainly with kids. You will be responsible for working with a small group (up to 4) kids to teach them how to ride a bike. These courses are exclusively on weekends - not every weekend - and are weather dependent.

Assistant Instructors are also needed for Level 3 courses for kids. You will be required to help with delivering classroom, "parking lot" and on-road aspects of this course. Duties may include set up and take down of computer and projector, setting up/taking down obstacles for handling drills, riding in sweep position on road to ensure all course participants stay together and in line as well as evaluating participant's understanding of course material. These courses may take place on weekdays, weekday afternoons and/or some weekends and are not weather dependent. 

Assistant Instructors must pass Level 4 (this course will be provided for you) and will work under the supervision of a Certified CAN-BIKE Instructor.


Certified CAN-BIKE Instructor Job Description:

Certified Instructors are needed to reach my dreams: to deliver Level 3 courses directly to kids at school and run daycamps during the summer. Other courses, including Level 1, 2 & 4 teaching will also be possible, depending on preferences and desired work schedule. If you are not currently Certified, you will need a 2 year commitment (first year for training/certification, second year to work independently).
