MONTREAL- CycloChrome, a leader in bicycle mechanics, is proud to announce its participation in the development of a new post-secondary training program, the Skills Training Certificate (STC) in bicycle mechanics.

In collaboration with the Ministère de l'Éducation du Québec, CycloChrome is the creator of this program, having developed all of its content. Furthermore, CycloChrome is the only partner of the Montreal School Service Center (CSSDM) to offer this training on the island of Montreal.

The new STC program prepares future mechanics to maintain, evaluate, repair and assemble all types of bicycles, including electric bikes and fatbikes.

"We are delighted that our efforts have paid off and that this training program has finally been created," acknowledges Pierre-Luc Langlois, Director of Cyclochrome. "The continuous training of our mechanics is the basis of our excellent reputation in the industry and has allowed us to develop relevant content," explains Mr. Langlois. "The participants of the program will benefit greatly from the know-how accumulated over the years by CycloChrome's mechanics."

"It is always rewarding to offer new professional training programs," says Mario Héroux, Director of the Montreal Motorized Equipment Trade School (EMEMM). "It has been requested for a long time by the industry. Without CycloChrome's commitment, this training would still be in the development stage."
