Train as a bicycle mechanic for an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic, fast-growing industry. In partnership with The Skills Company we are now offering a City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate in cycle maintenance from our state-of-the-art workshops in Liverpool.
City & Guilds Level 2 is equivalent to a GCSE and represents a respected attainment as a cycle mechanic. The Level 2 Cycle Mechanic module was written by cycle industry experts and is designed to cover the following tasks for road bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid bikes, BMX bikes and utility bikes.
What you'll learn:
Repair a cycle puncture
Remove and replace a cycle rim brake assembly
Carry out a systematic cycle check
Remove and replace cycle gear systems
Remove and replace cycle hub bearings
Remove and replace cycle bottom brackets and cranks
Build a cycle wheel
Prepare frames and forks for cycle assembly
Augment a cycle (fitting accessories)
Change a cycle frame
Service cycle headsets assemblies
Remove and replace cycle braking systems
The course is taught in small groups of up to six trainees. Our mechanic trainers are all experienced in the retail bike industry and have teaching experience.
The courses last for 10 days and provides a significant foundation in cycle maintenance making it suitable for people working in bike retail outlets, bike recycling schemes, bike hire schemes and anyone wanting to fully maintain their own bikes.
It's ideal that you have a level of basic bike maintenance experience from either working on you own bicycles or those of friends. We'd expect trainees to understand how a bike works, what the various parts are called and how to use general tools.
If you only have a limited level of experience then it might be best to attanded one of our basic, intermediate or advanced one-day courses first.
