Whether you’re an aspiring bike technician looking for formal training, or thinking of starting your own bike repair business, this is the course for you!
This is an intensive 6-day immersion into the world of modern bike mechanics where you’ll learn advanced techniques of professional bike repair and acquire tricks of the trade. Bicycle technology is becoming increasingly complex and the diversity of usage-specific components and designs means that modern-day technicians need to have a solid understanding of bicycle mechanics, diagnosis, repair and maintenance.
Full-time. This is a full-time course conducted over 6 full days, from 9am to 5pm with lunch and short breaks in between.
1,350 SGD. Please contact us for private and corporate classes.
No prior mechanic is experience required but you should be proficient in reading, writing and speaking English. Preferably 16 years and older.
Students will be assessed through a combination of written and practical tests. Those who pass will be awarded Bike School Asia’s Certified Bike Technician certification while those who complete the course without taking the tests, or are unable to meet the passing criteria will receive a Certificate of Completion.
This course is perfect for career mechanics who wish to get up-to-date, aspiring mechanics seeking formal training and avid home mechanics who would like to learn the ins and outs of their bikes.
Depending on who you ask, some may say that being a bike technician is the next evolution of being a mechanic. For us, the main difference is how bike technicians and bike mechanics use their skills — it is the difference between mental and physical — diagnosis and repair.
Modern bicycles are more complex than their predecessors. With electronic control systems taking over what used to be purely mechanical systems in the past, the gap between the skills required to be considered a bike technician versus that of a bike mechanic are more apparent.
The fact of the matter is most all technicians are mechanics, but not all mechanics are technicians.
