Cytech seeking training partners in Scotland, Northern Ireland & Ireland

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

CytCytech workshop group photoech, the internationally recognised training and accreditation scheme for bicycle technicians, is looking to expand in the UK & Ireland.

Managed by the Association of Cycle Traders (ACT), Cytech's mission to raise the standard of professional cycle technicians across the globe is going strong with first-rate facilities now training in four continents and Cytech qualified technicians operating in 52 countries.

Current Cytech international training locations are already contracted to double in 2022, with ever-increasing demand suggesting that there may be as many as three times the amount of Cytech training locations by the end 2022. Cytech is looking to kick-off this expansion by opening licenced training facilities in Scotland, Northern Ireland & Ireland.

If you are interested in becoming a licenced Cytech training provider in one or more of these locations, apply below.

Businesses will need to include:

  • A background of the business
  • Proposed location(s) for a Cytech training centre
  • Financial status of the business
  • Key people within the business, i.e. owner, proposed training technicians
  • Information on workshop facilities, including capacity for e-bikes, as well as any pre-existing training space
  • Any Cytech qualified staff already employed at the business
  • Anticipated trainee numbers and projected total Cytech training revenue within the first three years
  • Why the business wants to deliver training, and why it would be a good fit for Cytech

APPLY NOW

Applications will be accepted up until the initial deadline of 31/1/22. As there will be a thorough assessment of any potential Cytech training provider partner and/or location it is likely that there will be multiple rounds whereby applications can be submitted, although we still recommend submitting your application ASAP.

Applications will be reviewed by the ACT and will be treated with the strictest confidence. As we progress, we may ask for more financial information, including a set of latest accounts.

To ensure the high levels of Cytech standards are maintained, successful applicants will go through several further assessments before being appointed, including workshop, tooling and equipment checks and they will undertake ‘train the trainer' training.

Any questions should be directed to info@cytech.training.
