This course is generally aimed at the shop cycle mechanic that presently has some basic workshop skills but who has not yet been introduced or exposed to the dynamics of higher quality cycle builds. It would also cater for those who have started to work in this field and realize the importance of bringing their skill-set inline with the quality of the cycles and components they are handling.
The structure of the course is as below and will be interactive with hands-on involvement :
Introduction to the working space and tools..........the do’s and don’ts.
