Due to Coronavirus government lock down measures our training is postponed at the moment. Once we can safely do so, we will be running the Velotech courses again, in accordance with ongoing government guidelines. In the meantime, if you are interested in the training, please contact us on info@cycleform.co.uk or on 07900241753 and we will be in touch as soon as the courses are up and running.

Take and keep safe. Thank you for your understanding.

The Velotech Awards are accredited awards aligned with the National Qualification Framework.

The Velotech courses range from training and assessment in basic bicycle maintenance-the Red, White, Blue and Bronze Awards; to the Silver and Gold courses, which provide training and assessment in bicycle mechanics to Industry standard level. The Silver course is a pre-requisite for going onto the Gold course. The Velotech courses are run by Donald Cameron, Velotech trainer for Glasgow and West Scotland.

These courses are run at Cycleform training Centre, in Glasgow, but we also operate as a mobile training unit and can run courses at customers’ venues.

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.

VELOTECH BRONZE AWARD

The Bronze Award is aimed at cycle trainers and covers the basics you need to be able to adjust your participants' bikes while delivering cycle training sessions whether these are playground based, guided rides or off-road mountain biking. The course covers lubrication, adjustment and inspection and you can progress on to the Silver level course.
