Welcome to a new learning experience from The Bike Inn.
Our already world-renowned IMI Level 2 course in Cycle Mechanics has gone virtual!! Yep, that’s right, you can now learn the major theory parts of this invaluable qualification from the comfort of your own home. With more information than ever before, you will soon be speeding into the 21st century of bicycle technology, health and safety, workshop practices, tools and legislation. We use Google Classroom to deliver this course, a system that’s used extensively throughout the education sector, from primary and secondary schools through to universities and other establishments, as well as in various industry scenarios.
The course comprises four modules packed with documentation, videos and industry information, and is delivered and supported by the same tutors that run the in-person courses here at The Bike Inn. We have over 60 years of engineering experience in various industries, including over 30 years within the cycle industry between us, and we’ll be there for you at the other end of emails, chats, phone calls and structured meetings to answer all your questions and ensure you are not left feeling alone during your learning.
Comprehensive Course Material
This course, whilst new in format, has been months in development and has been designed to ensure a smooth, continuous learning experience following the story of all the parts and aspects of a bike. We’ve included the resource of a Zinn Road Bike Manual too, with references being made to this throughout the course, and of course Google is always your friend!
The Next Step...
By allowing a week for each of the four modules, the Theory & Foundation Course whilst being intensive is completely manageable and is fully assessed throughout. Completing and passing this course is the road to the on-site practical and assessment week, which takes place at The Bike Inn, Cumbria with other international locations to follow soon. This involves closed book assessments (not even us instructors know exactly what form the questions will take) together with extensive practical sessions which draw from and increase the skills and knowledge previously studied in the virtual modules. You cannot access this intensive practical week without having first passed the virtual modules - so you know when you arrive that the common ground you share with those around you is not just your love working on bikes, but that you are all starting from a level playing field in terms of knowledge.
