Cytech courses have continued to experience significant growths in demand as certified candidate numbers are up 60% ahead of last year, despite many courses pre-booked months in advance due to the pandemic. This demand increase also includes the Cytech technical e-Bike course.
To accommodate the extra demand there are now even more Cytech training centres across the UK with 5 facilities open and operating; Milton Keynes, Oxford, Stafford, Bracknell and Guildford with a new facility planned to open in Northeast England in the autumn.
As a result of the increased capacity Activate Cycle Academy (ACA) have been busy recruiting new members of staff and PJCS are moving into a more spacious workshop (in the same business centre).
Despite this growing popularity, the majority of the trade is still yet to discover the online course Cytech theory one. The ACT believes that every specialist cycle trade employee should have the knowledge and skills to better understand how the business is run, manage customer expectations, work safely and efficiently in the retail environment and even carry out some of the more basic workshop activities – Cytech theory one is key for every cycle trade employee, no matter what their role within in the business.
With new hires on the up and new mechanics entering the industry, possessing the skills learnt in Theory one will give employees a strong foundation of knowledge to better their ability to talk to customers, sell products, advise on basic repairs and build their career. The online learning course delivers an introduction to bicycle maintenance that can be completed anywhere and in your own time.
