Working side-by-side with an experienced mechanic, all of our youth apprentices complete an intense Bicycle Repair Certification process.

In addition, during the course of the season, our apprentices make progress toward the Small Business Certification. They are thoroughly schooled in the daily shop responsibilities including assisting customers, preparing the bank deposit, ordering and stocking items in the retail area and paying the bills.

As they gain experience, they are introduced to higher-level business concepts like reading financial statements, developing advertising strategies and selecting the merchandise mix on the retail floor.       

Meet Ignacio, one of our apprentices

Ignacio was a sophomore at Central High School when he became an apprentice. He took advantage of Express Bike Shop’s unique apprenticeship program to learn new skills. Ignacio’s strong mechanical skills, work ethic and easy rapport with customers and coworkers earned him a promotion to part-time staff after his initial apprenticeship. Ignacio was a valuable resource for new apprentices and he became an ambassador for the shop at community events. When asked about his post-secondary plans, Ignacio says he is looking forward to an advanced two-year degree in automotive technology. 

“My family does not have a history of going to college, but we are trying to create that expectation, starting with my generation.” ~ Ignacio
