Safety Education Training
Do you want your students to learn bike and pedestrian safety skills? Washington Bikes and Feet First provide 2-day trainings on how to teach the Bike and Pedestrian Safety Education Program in physical education classes.
Physical educaiton instructors, school staff, and involved parents learn how to teach an 8-lesson curriculum for middle school students. Skills range from basic bicycle handling, to traffic rules, to assessing the walking environment. The training is a mix of time in a classroom and time out on bikes.Often, trainings take place in your area to practice with local conditions.
