Electric cycles mechanics course
Our bespoke course, designed by our expert tutors, will teach you everything you need to know about electric cycle mechanics and keep you up to date on the latest developments in the sector.
What is the Bikeworks cycle electrics course?
The sale of electric bikes is now 23% of total value of cycle sales in the UK. This course will teach you how to diagnose and fix the majority of problems and convert standard cycles to e-cycles in a safe environment.
The course covers the drive systems (I.e. Bosch and Shimano) and their proprietary diagnostic software and you will work on a variety of different bikes using the latest equipment. You do not need prior knowledge of electrics but a good level of cycle mechanics knowledge is needed (City and Guilds Level 2 or equivalent).
The course is designed to be a mixture of practical and theory, with lots of hand-on practice. On successful completion participants will receive a certificate of completion from Bikeworks.
Please note: Students will not be required to dismantle batteries motors or controllers to carry out repairs as they are not cost effective and can be unsafe.
The course takes place over 3 days from 09:00 – 16:30 each day (with 1 hour for lunch).
