The Velotech Awards (formerly Weldtech) maintenance courses are accredited courses recognised by the Bicycle Association, at the end of which the successful participants receive the Gold, Silver or Bronze Award which is a recognised professional mechanics qualification.
The Velotech Gold course is run over 28 hours (over four days – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday). Places are limited to four participants per course, and covers everything from fixing a puncture to a complete rebuild of a bike.
During the course the candidates are shown how to perform each task, then led through the procedure, and finally have to carry out the task unaided to demonstrate that they understand the procedure and can carry it out in a safe and competent manner.
The cost of a Velotech Gold Award course is £600 per person and is only available at the Edinburgh Bike Station.
The Velotech Silver course is run over 14 hours (over two days – Tuesday, Wednesday). Places are limited to four participants per course, and covers puncture repair, safety checking, record keeping and adjusting all areas of a bike.
The cost of the Velotech Silver Award is £300 per participant.
