Velotech Qualifications

Our mechanic at the Shipley Bikery, John has a Velotech Platinum Plus qualification which enables him to deliver accredited Velotech training. Velotech Training Courses are a modular programme of learning with a strong emphasis on the practical understanding and application of good underlying mechanical principles. These training programmes are aimed at cyclists who want to feel more confident in maintaining and repairing their own bikes but are also a good introduction to individuals who are hoping to secure employment in the bike industry. 

We can offer the following qualifications:  

  • Velotech Red, White, Blue and Bronze  - approx 7 hours excluding practice
  • Velotech Silver - approx. 6.5 hours excluding practice
  • Velotech Gold  - approx. 8.5 hours exluding practice

By the end of the training you’ll be able to strip a bike down to the bare frame and rebuild it, diagnose and repair faults, service hubs, bottom brackets and head sets, and true buckled wheels.

We are currently delivering the training to our volunteers at the Shipley Bikery to ensure they are all up to the same minimum standard and feel confident in their abilities. This training will be available to the public from approximately March 2020.
