September breaks records for number of practical Cytech technicians certified within one month

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

CytechCytech workshop group photo continues to be in record-breaking demand as it now sees the highest ever number of practical technicians certified within one month in September 2021 - with over 115 in the UK alone!

The Cytech technical e-bike course in particular has become increasingly popular and is seemingly the aspirational course for many technicians. Theory one, the online learning course delivering an introduction to bicycle maintenance, is also seeing an increase in demand as people across the UK are taking the opportunity to kick-start their career as a professional cycle technician.

Certified candidate numbers are up 60% ahead of last year despite Covid capacity restrictions and a lot of technical courses are still pre-booked months in advance. For those wanting to complete a Cytech technical course we recommend booking early to guarantee a place for your chosen date and location.

Cytech expansion in the UK as demand continues

To accommodate the extra demand there are now even more Cytech training centres across the UK with 5 facilities open and operating; Milton Keynes, Oxford, Stafford, Bracknell and Guildford, with a new facility opening in Darlington in the autumn.

As a result of the increased capacity, Activate Cycle Academy (ACA) have been busy recruiting new members of staff and PJCS have moved into a more spacious workshop (in the same business centre).

In additional exciting news, at least 4 new Cytech training centres are opening in the next few months and new Cytech licence partners are being sought in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

More information about each of the developments above will follow soon! Keep an eye out for updates via the Cytech news page or on social media - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
