Technical One Practical
The Cytech Technical One Practical qualification is a natural progression from Cytech Technical One Theory.
The Cytech Technical One course is recognised by most leading manufacturers and suppliers, as well as the Association of Cycle Traders (ACT) as the minimum required standard entry level qualification for anyone wishing to become a cycle mechanic.
The required knowledge at this level will give you an understanding of what's involved to construct a bike from the boxed state it often arrives in store to fully constructed.
As well as bicycle maintenance, Cytech Technical One will give you a competent understanding of customer service within the retail environment to help you ensure your customer has the most positive experience.
What does this course include?
The course consists of classroom and workshop tuition followed by a practical assessment of the knowledge gained in the cycle workshop based on the key topics below.
- Health & Safety in the workshop
- Conforming to British Standards
- Pre-delivery inspection
- Adjustment, set-up & frame alignment
- Torque wrench settings
- Lubricants & greases
- Tyres & tubes
How long is the course?
Cytech Technical One Practical can be completed with either of the Cytech training providers and takes two days, a Cytech Technical One Practical certificate will be issued when you pass.
Alternatively, the two parts (Theory and Practical) can be taken together as one course at PJCS Training which takes three days.
To gain the full Cytech Technical One qualification both the Cytech Technical One Practical and the Cytech Technical One Theory modules need to be completed.
Do I have to do all the training?
If the candidate is competent in bicycle maintenance a one day assessment is available at both ATG Training and PJCS Training. It is recommended that you contact the training provider to discuss this option before booking.
