Bosch launches advanced e-bike tech training with UBI, BBI

Published May 23, 2018
Level 2 certification adds more hands-on training with e-bike components.

IRVINE, Calif. (BRAIN) — Bosch eBike Systems has partnered with two leading professional bicycle mechanic training schools to offer a new advanced Level 2 eBike Technical Certification.

The eight-hour course — in collaboration with United Bicycle Institute (UBI) based in Portland, Oregon, and Barnett Bicycle Institute (BBI) in Colorado Springs, Colorado — will be more in-depth and provide a more intimate, hands-on experience for attendees.  Students will learn advanced diagnostics, troubleshooting system errors, inside service tips and other skills.

“Our new Level 2 training is a natural complement to our industry-leading e-bike technical certification course (Level 1),” said Claudia Wasko, general manager of Bosch eBike Systems Americas. “We’re sure this more hands-on approach will be very well received by all e-bike mechanics.”

Completion of Level 1 training is a prerequisite in order to take Level 2. Level 2 courses start in the 2018 summer season and will be led by Bosch-trained instructors.  

UBI scheduled courses for 2018 are as follows:

  • Ashland, Oregon: June 1, Oct. 8, Nov. 30
  • Portland, Oregon: July 9, Sept. 7

To sign up, contact UBI at 541-488-1121 or at

The BBI schedule for training dates will be announced soon. BBI can be reached at 719-632-5173 or at
