As with all of the Master Samurai Tech courses, each lesson is chock-full of high-quality MST original content, and will have an automatically-graded quiz to help you assess how well you learned the material, so you can go back to review and really nail down the information.
WHEN: Tuesday, October 29th
REQUIREMENTS: The course is designed with the assumption that students have already taken the Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Course.
HOW MUCH: The tuition will be $375.
Will the course be added to the course Bundles?
The course will be available for individual purchase and also added to the course Bundles.
What if I already am enrolled in a Bundle - will I automatically get the course?
No, but that doesn’t mean you are missing out on anything. The new Bundle prices will be higher to reflect the addition of this course. This means that if you’ve already enrolled in a Bundle, you can just enroll separately in the Washer & Dryer course whenever you are ready for it. We will give those currently enrolled a discount so that the total cost will work out to be the same as if you had waited.
Why didn’t MST release a Washer and Dryer course sooner?
When we started the Master Samurai Tech Academy, our initial focus was on providing the technical training that we could see was desperately needed by the tech community. A lot of working techs had knowledge gaps, particularly when it came to electrical troubleshooting, that made it hard for them to kick butt on modern appliances, and we aimed to fill those gaps with our Fundamentals of Appliance Repair course.
The objective of the Fundamentals course is to impart a functional understanding of the technology common to all appliances along with troubleshooting techniques. A tech who is armed with this knowledge and skill can pull up the technical documents for any appliance and be able to diagnose and repair it - even one he's never laid his hands on before.
Do you understand how powerful that is? Your success as a technician is no longer dependent on your past repairs or specific product training or tech line.
But over time we had more and more students coming to us who were brand-new to the trade, and wanted more detailed teaching on specific types of appliances and more practice with troubleshooting using schematics. So we gradually put together our other technical courses.
Two things influenced the order in which we created the courses: the appliances that are the most profitable to work on, and which topics techs and business owners were asking for the most.
Since the release of our last course, Oven & Range Repair, we’ve had a steady increase in the number of people who want Washer & Dryer technology training delivered by Team Samurai. We heard you! And now the wait is almost over.
