La Bici Digna started offering Bike Mechanic Training courses in October at the Downtown Community Job Center on Saturday mornings. This 10-12 week course is founded on popular education principles and will not only focus on bike maintenance and repair, but will also include lessons on communication and management skills that will empower workers to self-manage the program.
At the end of this course, participants will have learned important mechanic skills while having taught them to each other and themselves. They will be teachers and empowered to share their skills with their community.
Please feel free to check out our course syllabus here.
