Train your greatest asset with Cytech Theory One new trade prices

Posted on 17 Feb 2021

cytech logo Sharpen up your employees' knowledge and skills in preparation for the peak cycling season.

We believe that every specialist cycle trade employee should be armed with the knowledge and skills to better understand how the business is run, manage customer expectations, work safely and efficiently in the retail environment and even carry out some of the more basic workshop activities. 

Cytech courses encompass the basics of cycle mechanics right through to dealing with the most advanced and high-tech components and parts, demonstrating competency and commitment to continued development and improvement.

Being Cytech qualified not only gives your staff the confidence they need to do their job to the highest of their ability, but it also gives your customers peace of mind that their bike is in safe hands.

Whilst Cytech technical two is the industry standard for professional cycle technicians and Cytech technical three represents the pinnacle of technical proficiency, getting qualified to a minimum of Cytech theory one is key for every cycle trade employee, no matter what their role within in the business.

 

Theory one: new trade pricing

Following the ACT's recent restructure, Gold members now get 2/3 off, Silver members get 1/2 off and free MyACT accounts get 1/3 off the Cytech theory one RRP of £150.

 

 

The restructure means that full annual ACT membership is now available for £60p.a. the equivalent of just £5p.m.
 
To learn more about the ACT's restructure and new and improved pricing read the ACT brochure or find out more about how you can join the ACT.

Possessing the skills learnt in Cytech theory one will give your employees a strong foundation of knowledge to better their ability to talk to customers, sell products, advise on basic repairs and build their career. The online learning course delivers an introduction to bicycle maintenance that can be completed anywhere, in your own time.
