To apply to the Quadra Bike School

Submit by e-mail or by snail-mail:
  • A resumé describing your mechanical experience with bicycles
  • Reasons for wanting to take advanced mechanic's training
  • Contact information and your place of residence.
  • $500 deposit that will secure your spot in the 3 courses by cheque or an Interac® e-mail money transfer to smokeydymny (at) gmail.com
Students not wanting to register in three courses to obtain full mechanic's certification will be held on a waiting list. Those who register for all three components will be given priority.

Fees

Tuition for Part 1. Bicycle Assembly and Tuning is $850 plus Goods & Services Tax of 5%

Tuition for Part 2. Professional Bicycle Repair is $850 plus GST of 5%

Tuition for the Bicycle Repair Practicum is $850 plus GST of 5%

Taking all three courses will cost $2550 plus GST

Residence costs for each course are $330 plus GST %5

Residence for all three plus the extra days of practice is $990 plus GST.

Total Course cost including residence is: $3540 + $177 GST

There are four spots in each course.  Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis and does not become complete until a $500 deposit has been received. Your deposit is non-refundable unless you withdraw in enough time to allow another person to register in the same courses.
I will transfer your deposit if you register in a later course.

The main US course which I based the Canadian one on, both in Toronto and here, does not include the all-important practical component, which is called Bicycle Repair Practise. You are also not allowed to cook in the motel they recommend. And you have to commute. I have full cooking facilities. And the bike shop is steps from the residence front door. And yet, this course, held on beautiful Quadra Island, with bike trails starting from your front door, costs less than half the US course cost (translated into Canadian dollars).
