Required skills prior to enrolment

LITERACY & NUMERACY

Reading Technical Language

Proficiency level: You should be able to read English technical writing at a level equivalent to a typical Year 10 high school student.

Examples: In conversation, reading of fiction, and reading of non-fiction prose (i.e., news articles, magazine articles, etc.), context may make it possible to get the gist of the article, book, or conversation without completely understanding every word and sentence. The same is not true of technical language. Therefore, you must be able to read at a level where you can understand each word and statement in its entirety.

Mathamatics

Proficiency level: You must be able to use a calculator to perform addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division functions. For this purpose, you must be able to understand numbers with decimal notation. No mental calculation or hand-written calculation is required.

Bicycle Riding Skills

Proficiency level: You must be able to ride a bicycle, operate its gear systems, and operate its brakes.

Examples: An absolutely essential part of working as a professional mechanic is to perform diagnosis of shifting performance, braking performance, handling, and noises issues while a bike is being operated under normal riding loads.

Auditory Skills

Proficiency level: You will need to be able to distinguish quiet noises and noise changes of a very small magnitude.

Examples:

Bicycles make noise during operation. Some noises are normal, and some noises indicate problems are occurring. Often, the “problem” noises occur while normal noises are simultaneously occurring. Some specific examples are:

• Moving parts (such as chains) that need lubrication may squeak quietly

• Brake pads that are worn out, misaligned, loose, or contaminated make squealing, scraping, and groaning noises

• Gear-shift mechanisms that are out of adjustment make very quiet scraping or clattering sounds

• Marginally loose parts or poorly fit parts such as handlebars, stems, pedals, cranks, crank bearings, seats and seat posts make quiet creaking or clicking sounds

• Structural parts that have cracks developing make clicking and creaking sounds during operation sometimes well before damage becomes apparent visually or by touch.
