The Level Two Certificate in Cycle Maintenance and Repair is the industry standard entry level to the profession.
Located in Seale Hayne College, South Devon, set in rolling grounds with access to Dartmoor roads and trails on its doorstep, the training academy was set up in London in 2007 and opened by Mayor Boris Johnson.
