GUELPH, Ontario (BRAIN)—Winterborne Bicycle Institute (WBI), responding to extending waiting lists and increasing demand, has added an additional Pro Bike Mechanics class June 8-19.
“The manufacturing downturn is freeing up people with good mechanical skills and a strong work ethic,” said Jay Filer, WBI founder. “Some of these folks are keen cyclists and eager to retool themselves to work in bike shops. Given the shortage of good bike mechanics in the industry, this is an unexpected silver lining in these economic times.”
The 11-day hands-on immersion course will take place at the fully tooled shop/classroom in Guelph, Ontario. WBI is Canada’s only college-affiliated trade school for bicycle mechanics. WBI is an off-campus trade school partner of Conestoga College, and is accredited by Shimano Canada. Tuition fees are eligible for the Canadian Revenue Agency’s Tuition Tax Credit.
