Cytech expansion in the UK as demand continues


UK Providers MapPart 1 of the ACT summer series looks at the rapid expansion of Cytech in the UK.

Cytech continues to be in record-breaking demand as certified candidate numbers are up 60% ahead of last year despite Covid capacity restrictions and most courses are pre-booked months in advance.

This includes the Cytech technical e-bike course, which has become increasingly popular and is seemingly the aspirational course for many technicians.

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 Northeast England in the autumn.

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

Bracknell workshopDespite this growing popularity, the majority of the trade is still yet to discover the online course Cytech theory one! Theory one is where the Cytech journey begins, suitable for all shop staff working in the cycle trade.

Trade pricing has now been refined - get all your staff (including sales staff) trained and workshop ready now from only £41.67 excl. VAT with ACT membership.
