The WBI Pro Course is really for anyone with an interest in bikes. You learn the practical and theoretical foundations necessary to tackle any problem, and have sufficient tool time to be able to apply your knowledge directly on the bike.
Do students receive a certificate?
Students successfully completing the course with a passing grade receive a frameable certificate from Winterborne Bicycle Institute that also bears Shimano's and Conestoga College's logos. In Canada there is currently no formal or industry-recognized trade certification process for bicycle mechanics. Accordingly, the WBI certificate is actually a "Certificate of Completion" for the course.
