On a Hybrid it would be most likely that you have a sealing mechanism, cartridge type wheel bearings are usually found on high end wheels. Overhauling wheel bearings isn't hard, it just takes some experience to get it adjusted "just right", not too tight, or not to loose. It is done by feel. See if a LBS near you offers some type of repair of maintenance class, like the Park Tool School.
I do mine once a year, or if I notice a problem, like grinding of looseness.
