If you are looking to stock, sell and service eBikes then why not sign up for a Cytech technical eBike course designed to prepare businesses for the predicted rise in eBike maintenance in the coming years.

The subjects covered in the course are:

  • Safe working practices when dealing with batteries and electrical units

  • Basic electrical theory and terminology including understanding wiring diagrams and multimeter use

  • Diagnosis and use of ‘intelligent' diagnostics systems, as well as testing and fault finding of the components
  • Removal and installation of components, and test rides of bikes with the motor either at the front, rear hub or built into the frame
