“CT1TSA, which is based on the online UK Cytech™ Theory One, has been contextualised for the South African market and successful completion thereof is compulsory to gain admission to any subsequent Cytech™ Technical courses” said Graeme Stickells, Managing Director of Torq Zone Academy.

“Once enrolled the learner has 60 days to complete the course, after which their subscription will lapse.” He added that the learner can also opt to complete the theory component of Cytech™ Technical 1 in the classroom over one day.

Following the completion of the theory component of Cytech™ Technical 1, either online or in the classroom, the learner will need to attend a 2 day practical and assessment session to be certified as a Cytech™ Technical 1 Bicycle Mechanic.


Cytech™ Technical 1 is the first in a series of three trade courses. This course forms the foundation of all the Cytech™ Technical courses which ensures learners develop competencies in skills fundamental to professional cycle maintenance and is aimed at professionals either starting out their formal learning, or careers as a bicycle mechanic.

The normal course fee is about R1,800. However, in order to accommodate learners we’ve decided to offer it at the special introductory offer of R1,300 until the end of December 2014.

The Torq Zone team will be at the Standard Bank Africa Cycle Fair 24-26 Oct 2014 where the Torq Zone Academy will be officially launched. Cytech™ online courses can be accessed through
