Prestigious new accreditation recognises CSS as specialist on-track training providers
California Superbike School UK is the first specialist on-track rider training provider in the UK to be awarded ‘Gold Standard’ accreditation under a new framework to recognise the facilitation of structured on-track rider training and consultancy services to the Motorcycle Rider Training Industry. This prestigious new accreditation from the MCIAC (Motorcycle Industry Association Accreditation Centre) recognises and promotes specialist on-track rider training providers and the California Superbike School achieved the highest classification awarded by the MCIAC, the Gold standard – setting the benchmark for professional on-track motorcycle training, superior facilities and equipment within the UK.
As part of the accreditation process the California Superbike School demonstrated the ability to provide specific structured learning programmes and specialist coaching techniques in a high quality training environment.
Investment in the school’s professional coaching team reflects the quality of training provided by the organisation and was rewarded with high praise from the MCIAC assessor: “There is no doubt that the California Superbike School UK are utilising excellent coaching techniques and are a benchmark for the aspirations of the wider motorcycle rider training industry’s desire to deliver ‘client centred learning’.”
The Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC) was developed by the Coventry based Motorcycle Industry Association in 2013. The Centre is approved by the highly respected Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). IMI provides qualifications for the motor industry, which are relevant, sector-specific and recognised world-wide.
MCIAC courses are recognised by the DVSA, the Government department responsible for driving and testing standards. The UK is the only country in Europe to have established such a framework and it will help riders find high quality training to improve both on and off-road riding.
