Trainees have consistently praised the program's professionalism, well-organised training room, and the expertise of the instructor. The positive feedback received highlights the commitment of Cytech Training Scotland to delivering an exceptional learning experience. Here what trainees said about the quality of training

  • I really enjoyed the overall atmosphere at Bike For Good and the professionalism of the Cytech department. They provide the students with high quality tools and materials, which allows to learn the job well.
  • The training room was a first rate manufacturer style workshop with every required tool to hand with their place on the wall. It gave me inspiration for my own dream garage set up.
  • The Trainer’'s teaching style was engaging and informative, making the content easy to grasp. He really knows his stuff and is great at explaining complex concepts in a way that's easy to understand.

 Gregory Kinsman-Chauvet, CEO and Founder at Bike for Good said: "We are thrilled to commemorate a year of exceptional achievements. Our heartfelt thanks to the Association of Cycle Traders, whose unwavering support has helped our charity fulfil its objective of educating the public on the safe use and repair of bicycles.
