Ekolo Certified for E-bike Mechanic Exams
PRAGUE, Czech Republic – The country’s oldest e-bike manufacturer and distributor ekolo.cz has been certified to take exams for e-bike mechanics by the national Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
Mid 2016 the National Register of Qualifications of the Czech Republic, part of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, approved the ‘training on the job’ qualification system for the e-bike industry. Called the NSK project it made the Czech Republic the second country within EU, where the qualifications for the profession of e-bike mechanics are state recognized.
ekolo.cz’ s CEO Jakub Ditrich states, “we have been training e-bike mechanics ever since we entered the market ten years ago. However, this official certification gives our courses another dimension for the participants. We already see a huge interest from the bicycle professionals, while a national exam is not compulsory to work as a e-bike mechanic.”
The NSK project is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the Czech Republic.
