eBike technicians demand rising

eBikes are becoming more and more popular as we move further into 2019 with demand for eBike technicians rising across the UK.

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
  • Understanding and working to the legal standards and being able to differentiate between type approved and non-type approved e-bikes
  • Basic electrical theory and terminology including understanding wiring diagrams and multimeter use
  • Soldering iron and electrical crimps use with best practice for installing electrical connectors
  • 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
  • Communicating service work completed to the customer
