Year one of this two-year course is designed to introduce and excite students about career pathways within the bicycle industry and prepare them for entry-level positions as bicycle technicians or retail associates. Practices are developed and assessed by a combination of hands-on skill checks, written assessments, presentations, and project-based learning. Year two dives deeper into more complex bicycle mechanics; front and rear suspension, hydraulics brakes, complete overhauls. Plus more into career development and trail stewardship.

Certificates of Achievement

Students earn two certificates. One in career tech endorsed by CTE, and the other as an entry-level bike mechanic/assembler endorsed by members of the bicycle industry. As the student enters the bike industry, employers know the training is standardized and supported by the cycling industry. 

You can become a certified bike mechanic for free!
