    Gawd, £1200 to be taught what most cyclists know already!

    At first glance it looks expensive but when you consider it a 2 week course and I assume you achieve a Level 2 qualification on completion of the course?

    Looks interesting, enjoy.

    It looks like a money printing machine to me, sorry but it's getting the same in most things, certificates for certificates sake, no doubt there will be an insurance indemnity scheme that you will be introduced to.

    Enjoy!
    The piece of paper is very handy to have for job applications, just saying you're experienced is not enough.
    I have done a Bronze (basic level) Velotech.
    I found that in those courses you need to have lots of knowledge already, they teach you with a view that you already know most of it.

    I think there are somethings there a good number if cyclists (me included) don't know.

    Maybe so, but in this day and age if i fixed my neighbours kids bike brakes and they failed i could be in deep shoot. Work are paying for it so cost me nowt and have apiece of paper to say i'm competent . £1200 is way over the top , but what the hell not my money :smile:

    Yeah, I got that bit. I just wondered if you get a qualification just for turning up or is there more to it?
