Bicycle mechanics school. Ukraine’s first bicycle mechanic courses.
“Personnel decide everything!”. Today, we do not write about politics, which owns these words, today we are writing about the meaning of these words for bike propagation entire country. Today we announce the opening of the first Ukrainian school of bicycle mechanics!
Our school has been operating since 2014 and has already graduated more than 550 students who have learned how to repair and maintain their bicycles, repair friends’ bicycles, got a job in our network or with colleagues in the market, and also started their own business or became our franchise partners. And now for more details.
Previously, we, as the first and largest bike rental and repair network in Ukraine, often had to face the problem of personnel, namely the lack of qualified specialists to work in our service departments. We literally had to raise our bicycle mechanics ourselves, so that the bike repairs in our repair centers were of high quality. Therefore, the main goal of its existence was the bicycle mechanic school puts, first of all, the training of qualified workers in the field of bicycle service and repair.
However, everything flows, everything changes. And the COVID-19 pandemic has made its own adjustments to the learning process. Therefore, the time has come to reformat our product for the needs of an ordinary user. In this regard, we are going on a short vacation and will be back in a new format very soon.
