What You’ll Learn:
Our Introduction to Bicycle Maintenance course is designed with the beginning mechanic in mind. Here you will learn the basics of maintaining your bicycle, from simple bearing system overhauls to tune-ups. This course will help make you a self-sufficient cyclist, enabling you to perform the most common procedures. The information presented is applicable to all types of bicycles and it is also a great introductory class for anyone who would like a more thorough foundation before taking our Professional Repair and Shop Operation course.
This course is also excellent for fleet mechanics, law enforcement officers, and hotel/resort managers who would like to maintain their fleet in-house rather than rely on a local bike shop. Upon successful completion of the course, graduates will receive a Certificate of Completion.
