Mechanic Certification &
Graduate Benefits

Advanced Certification SeminarsUBI is the most respected training institute in the bicycle industry. For this reason, there are more graduates from UBI working in the field than any other national mechanics school. We are proud of this record and continue to expand and improve our curriculum as technology changes.

UBI offers two types of certificate programs. Our Certificate of Completion is awarded to all students who successfully attend every class session and complete all required course work. This certificate is available for every class we offer. For those who wish to be employed in the bicycle industry, or for experienced mechanics who would like advanced certification, we offer our Certified Bicycle Technician program. This certificate means the student has passed a rigorous testing procedure and has been certified by United Bicycle Institute to be proficient in the given discipline.

DT StickerThose students who do not wish to be tested, or who take the test and do not receive a passing grade, will be awarded a Certificate of Completion. Our Certified Bicycle Technician program is available through our Professional Repair and Shop Operation class and Advanced Mechanics Seminars. We also offer a special certificate, in conjunction with DT Swiss, to successful graduates of our UBI and DT Swiss Certified Advanced Wheel Building Seminar.

Special Graduate Tool Discount

Advanced Certification SeminarsFor each UBI class you complete, you receive a special purchase discount from United Bicycle Tool Supply, allowing you to purchase tools at their current wholesale prices. United Bicycle Tool Supply is the largest wholesale distributor of bicycle tools in the country. With the wholesale discount, students are able to buy tools at a price that most bicycle shops pay.

Post Graduate Job Referrals

UBI graduates are in high demand throughout the bicycle industry. In fact, we are contacted regularly by potential employers who wish to receive a list of UBI graduates. If after you graduate you would like to be on this list, just let us know. We also offer bicycle industry job listings on this web site in our Job Listings area, plus our graduates may take advantage of our automatic email notification system - every time we get a new job posting it is automatically emailed to our graduates who are currently looking for a position.

Veterans Benefits

United Bicycle Institute is approved by the Oregon Department of Education for the education and training of veterans and other eligible persons. Veterans should contact us via email for more information.

UBI is an eligible WIA provider in the State of Oregon as well as many other states. If you are considering a vocational rehabilitation program with UBI, please be advised that our most popular classes fill up as much as 60 days in advance, so you may need extra time to plan your application.
