In a word, "No". We provide each student with a shop copy of Barnett's Manual, 5th Edition, Volumes 1 - 4, and a shop copy of Dr. Arnie Baker's "Bit Fit", both for use during the course. We also have a full reference library including Sutherland's Handbook, manufacturer technical documentation, and distributor catalogues available for students' use during the course.
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.
