Course outcomes

Course outcomes: 

The course will define how to maintain individual bikes and equipment as well as fleets and enable the use of your record-keeping and daily work systems, to ensure that best practice and legal requirements are fulfilled.

This includes the essential how to's:

  • fixing and maintaining bikes
  • pre-emptive maintenance (spotting when things might break before they do)
  • using your record system effectively.

Where this course is provided at your venue, your existing systems are utilised and made as workable as possible, in the light of legal and practical requirements.

This course is designed for those who look after the equipment, make sure that it is working, get the spanners out and complete the records of work undertaken rather than the Fleet Management course which develops the fleet management systems themselves.
