“I thoroughly enjoyed the electric cycles maintenance course and believe it has been very useful for updating/upgrading the cargo cycle course I teach as well as my ability to work on other projects using e-vehicles. The content was well researched and well presented (info booklet). Videos were a great resource as well.” Filip

“The course was very thorough and made me think about e-bikes in a way I hadn’t necessarily done before. Having a go at using a multimeter, soldering and removing and re-installing a motor were great experiences.” Terry

I enjoyed the course a lot, Colin was entertaining and educational so top marks for him.”  John
