The Cytech e-bike course is designed for bicycle dealers, sales staff and technicians who are looking to stock, sell and service e-bikes.
The 3 day e-bike course has been specifically designed to help prepare candidates for the ever increasing e-bike market sector. It provides the skills needed to confidently set-up, service and repair a broad spectrum of electric bikes along with an understanding of the specific standards and legal aspects that apply to them. It quickly gets candidates up to speed with all tha latest e-bike technology and equips them with the skills needed to work on today's rapidly advancing and ever more complex workshop environment.
This is the most comprehensive e-bike course available in the UK.
Subjects covered are basic electrical theory, terminology, safe working practices when dealing with batteries and electrical units, understanding wiring diagrams, multi meter use, soldering iron and electrical crimps use with best practice for installing electrical connectors, removal and installation of components, diagnosis, testing and fault finding of the components, use of ‘intelligent’ diagnostics systems, understanding and working to the legal standards and being able to differentiate between "approved" and "non-type" approved e-bikes, communicating service work completed to the customer, test rides of e-bikes with the motor at the front or rear hub or built into the frame.
The course is designed for those who need a comprehensive insight into electric bikes. It delivers a complete overview and deep-dive into the different types of motor systems being used by all the leading e-bike manufacturers.
Candidates are expected to be competent mechanics with a good level of experience from working on and/or selling regular, non e-bikes eg. Cytech technical one qualification and at least 1 years industry knowledge as a minimum.
At the current time the course is delivered from our Oxford centre only.
Continuing professional development (CPD), in the form of ongoing work experience gained from working on the latest e-bikes (achieved in-house and from manufacturer training courses) is reasonably expected for those completing the Cytech e-bike course.
