About Our Certificate Programs
UBI is the most respected training institute in the bicycle industry. For this reason, there are more graduates from UBI working in the field (with companies like Trek, Specialized, Shimano, Raleigh USA, Industry Nine and many more) than any other national mechanics school. We are proud of our record, and continue to expand and improve our curriculum as bike technology constantly changes.
UBI offers two types of certificate programs
- Certificate of Completion is awarded to all students who successfully attend every class session and complete all required course work. This certificate is available for every class we offer.
- Certified Bicycle Technician Program is for those who wish to be employed in the bicycle industry, or for experienced mechanics who would like advanced certification. This certificate means the student has passed a rigorous testing procedure, and has been certified by United Bicycle Institute to be proficient in the given discipline. This program is available through our Professional Repair and Shop Operation class, and Advanced Mechanics Seminars.
In addition, we also offer advanced certificates for graduates of our DT Swiss Advanced Wheel Builder Seminar and Suspension Technician Seminar (view more info about our Advanced Certification Seminars).
UBI's Continuing Education Seminars and Clinics are designed for experienced mechanics, or previous graduates who have completed our Professional Repair and Shop Operation course. In these seminars, students learn specific skills and technologies that will help them become more complete and current bike mechanics.
Topics vary from year to year in order to stay current with the latest bicycle technology. View Mechanics Classes for our current schedule.
