Who is this course for?

According to the Irish Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association, Ireland has over 420 bicycle shops now across the country however very few of the mechanics that work in these shops have any qualifications to prove they have received any training as a professional bicycle mechanic or reached any level of competency. Bike repair shops are crying out for qualified mechanics, which is why the undertaking of a bicycle maintenance course could result in a very lucrative career for those who wish to pursue a career in bicycle mechanics. 

These courses are also suited to people who may want to just learn how to maintain their own bicycles or people who competitively cycle. 

There are a number of bicycle maintenance courses available across the country.
