AMBUCS University is an initiative to standardize and improve education for members who are (or would like to become) Mechanics, Evaluating Therapists, or Road Show Captains.
Mechanics are our chapter’s Amtryke building and maintenance experts. At National Conference the main opportunity to learn will be at the Bike Build. Occasionally there will be additional time set aside for advanced topics. Every chapter will want to have a representative on hand to participated in the hands-on Bike Build training.
Evaluating Therapists are our chapter’s experts at fitting people to the perfect Amtryke and adaptations for them. The hands-on Amtryke Evaluation and Fitting Training (AEFT) for Therapists runs 7.5 hours. A shorter 4 hour version without hands-on evaluation can also be offered. Open to member therapists as well as any other interested therapist. CCUs are sometimes available. We have received certification via ProCert for FIVE CCU (for the 7.5 hour version) for Physical Therapists in over 36 states. We plan to offer AEFT in each region at least once every other year.
Road Show Captains take a trailer full of trykes on the road and form new chapters focused on the Amtryke program. Please contact the ARC if you are interested in learning more.
