The accreditation process is based on completing a series of four Accreditation Modules.
There is no time pressure to pass each module as riders’ skill and fitness levels develop at different speeds. The Grassroots Trust Velodrome coach will often recommend riders repeat a class before signing off a module.
Riders must complete each Accreditation Module to the satisfaction of their instructor before moving on to the next module.
Generally it takes about 4 – 6 weeks to become accredited. Riders often like to do back to back days to try and complete the accreditation process a little faster. Our recommendation is regular weekly classes.
Accreditation Modules must not be more than 4 weeks apart. If there is a gap of more than 4 weeks between sessions then you will be required to repeat the last module.
As riders progress at different rates depending on ability and confidence on the track, Grassroots Trust Velodrome coaches will use their experience to determine if rider is able to progress up the track more quickly or need to stay back. For example, the coach may allow a rider to progress from Module 1 or 2 directly to Module 4 if the rider has the skill, ability and fitness to complete Module 4. Our coaches will not rush you and if you have to repeat a module or two along the journey, that’s perfectly fine too! Your Grassroots Trust Velodrome Coach will advise you when you are ready to step up to the next level class.
