Top specialist bike trainer rides in to town business park
A WORLD leader in training for bicycle mechanics and retail staff has relocated their Midlands learning centre to Stafford’s Tollgate Business Park.
ATG Training, a not-for-profit charity, moved into the new 2,000 square foot facility due to the accessibility of the site - and CEO Ian Harper couldn’t be happier.
“This is an exciting new venue for ATG Training,” he said. “A great deal of planning and research has led us to deciding on Stafford as a location.
“We are now able to fulfil customer demand for a training facility in the area with both a workshop and training room environment that mirrors those we have in other parts of the country.”
ATG delivers the industry standard Cytech cycle maintenance training pro- gramme and at any one time the charity has up to 1,000 trainees being trained and assessed in work-based learning programmes and onsite training days throughout the country.
Recognised as the benchmark brand for accreditation and technical skills, Cytech training can be customised to deliver
everything from the basics of bicycle maintenance to complex bike builds and servicing of the newest and most technical products.
Mr Harper said: “Stafford was chosen as a location due to the great communication links the town enjoys.”
He said that with the training facility only a mile from the M6 and just over two miles from the railway station, his customers could now easily access his business from all over the region.
Mr Harper said that ATG specialised in acquiring government funding from various agency sources and in many instances could offset some of the cost of training for organisations.
“We tailor the training to meet business needs,” he said.“We have clients from independent
traders through small/medium enterprises to multinational operations.
“Each receives the individual care they expect.”
He said that by engaging with ATG Training, customers assured themselves of the chance to benefit from industry specialists, high quality tutors, restricted class sizes and a good quality training experience, with pass rates way beyond the national average.
