Labici Offers a Course in Mechanics

The courses of bicycle mechanics and training of professional mechanics offered by LABICI WORKSHOP aim to promote qualified education on this branch of activity, based on a class model that combines theoretical and practical classes and that allows the student autonomy in the development of their training.
The courses are cyclical and have independent stages, with classes available every month. The student is thus able to make his registration separately, always observing the required prerequisites. This allows the interested parties to reach a wide view of the mechanics of bicycles, starting from the basics of their parts and the tools used in a mechanic, evolving to assembly and complete disassembly of their components, and even achieving specialization in electronic, Suspension, hydraulic brake system, among others, becoming, with this, a professional mechanic of that area that presents constant growth in the labor market.
The LABICI WORKSHOP courses and activities program is based on the practical knowledge that results from years of experience and studies of the professionals who teach the classes, from researches that seek to detect students’ interests, as well as from the analysis of what is done More innovative in education and development of bicycle mechanics in Brazil and worldwide.
LABICI WORKSHOP also fosters the interaction among students, teachers and professionals in the sector, promoting the discussion of the topics covered in the class, offering a permanent platform to clarify doubts about the courses and about any problems that arise during the day to day In bicycle mechanics. This dynamic and exchange of knowledge reflects the pursuit of LABICI WORKSHOP in modernizing its courses, improving them according to the evolution that constantly occurs in the bicycle market, always observing the wishes and needs of those interested in the sector.

Courses

Iv) Essential Foundations+Specific Modules+Stage
LABICI WORKSHOP maintains its teaching format in two solid bases, called GENERAL FOUNDATIONS AND ESSENTIAL FOUNDATIONS.
In order to train specialized bicycle mechanics, LABICI WORKSHOP has developed a course that includes the techniques and trainings seen in the ESSENTIAL TRAINING stage, complemented by the specific wheels, suspension and hydraulic brake assembly modules, and completed by an internship Supervised in the workshop that LABICI WORKSHOP offers to its students.
After completing all these steps, the interested party will have a solid training in bicycle mechanics, with control of essential procedures and specific technical skills, mastery of the use of multifunctional tools and equipment, being able to establish the maintenance method to be applied, evaluating the wear and tear of Components, controlling the useful life of materials, respecting technical and environmental standards, besides knowing in detail to assemble wheels, to work with suspension and electronic exchange.
The supervised stage, in turn, will provide the practical application of all the teachings transmitted and is considered an essential step for the future mechanic to consolidate his abilities, observing other professionals of the field and learning to treat objectively the complex situations that involve the maintenance of the Various bicycle models on the market.
After that, the student will feel safe to enter this market that is increasingly relevant in Brazil, as well as enriching his personal knowledge and exchanging, from there, constant information and experiences with his teachers and other students of the course , Since LABICI WORKSHOP privileges the constant learning and professional improvement, encouraging spaces of dialogue so that all learn to interact with their own doubts, becoming agents of their learning.
