Life Cycle UK offers 2 day, fully accredited courses that teach bike mechanics to City & Guilds “Level 1 Cycle Mechanic” standard. The course takes place in Bristol over 2 consecutive days.
Home mechanics, cycle instructors, teachers, scout leaders – anyone who wants an accredited introduction to cycle mechanics.
Each course has wide range of people from diverse backgrounds. It is a professional standard course with lots of hands-on work. You will be expected to have a basic knowledge of bikes and bike tools and the ability to use them. If needed, we can arrange support with basic reading and writing skills.
The Level 1 course covers four mandatory units:
Each unit will be assessed as we cover it. On completion of all assessments, you will achieve a City & Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Cycle Mechanics (3902-18).

All you need to bring is a pen and notebook. As this is a professional qualification, you will be expected to wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) throughout the course.
