With the Park Tool School, we have done all the lesson plans for you. By teaching this curriculum, you will be building stronger relationships with your customers. Your store will generate more bicycle, parts, and accessories sales as your customers ride more and enjoy cycling more. The Park Tool School will position your staff as the bicycle service experts in your area.

Retailers offering the Park Tool School are expected to have the most current Teacher Guide, the BBB-3TG. Additionally, the students must have some access to the BBB-3, the student textbook (either by purchase or loaner copy). The Park Tool School program is based on some hands-on work, and the students should be offered the opportunity to practice their skills.
The BBB-3TG offers eight pre-packaged curriculum and class options. Additionally, the BBB-3TG gives approximate teaching times for individual topics and procedures. You can customize your program to fit the needs of your clientele. As your store gains experience, topics may be added or deleted as necessary. Curriculum times are broken down in detail in Chapter C — Curriculum Options.
