We on Team Samurai maintain and develop two different websites: Master Samurai Tech and Appliantology. Each site is designed to assist you in different stages of your appliance repair journey.
Master Samurai Tech is an online academy that provides state-of-the-art appliance repair training, both for new techs and techs who have been in the business for 30 years or more.
Appliantology is a tech support community that provides peer-to-peer tech help, service manual downloads, and live training webinars to techs who are hard at work plying their trade.
While the sites' missions are distinct, they are interconnected in powerful ways. If you enroll with us at the Master Samurai Tech Academy, you can earn premium membership at Appliantology 100% for free.
These memberships are the Master Samurai Tech Student membership and the Master Samurai Tech Alumnus membership. Here's how they work:
When you enroll in any course at Master Samurai Tech, you immediately become eligible for the MST Student membership. That's 6 months of premium membership, giving you access to everything Appliantology has to offer with no extra charge.
Once that half a year is up, you can either transition to one of our other tech membership options, or, if you achieved a certifiable grade in our Fundamentals course at Master Samurai Tech, you can upgrade to the prestigious MST Alumnus membership.
An Alumnus membership is just like a Student membership, empowering you with access to all of Appliantology -- but it can be renewed indefinitely for no charge. All you need to do to keep up an Alumnus membership is participate in the forums (more info on that here).
Enrollment at the Master Samurai Tech Academy doesn't just teach you invaluable repair skills; it also opens the door for access to all the great tech help at Appliantology forever.
Want to take advantage of all these powerful knowledge tools? Start with an enrollment at Master Samurai Tech today.

Just a quick heads-up -- today at 12 PM Eastern, we'll be upgrading from the Master Samurai Tech Academy's current server to a brand new, $6 billion, NASA-style supercomputer, complete with artificial consciousness and sake liquid cooling.
So, what does this mean for you?
It means about an hour of downtime from 12 to 1 PM EST, during which both Master Samurai Tech and Appliantology will be inaccessible. But after that, it means better site performance and an even more robust, secure server going into the future.
See you on the other side!
Do you find that your business or job is in the doldrums as the winter months drag on? We certainly do, but have found that an injection of sunshine and hanging out with Brethren in the Craft is just the thing to liven things up. And the United Servicers Organization (USA) gives us the opportunity every year.
The USA, an organization dedicated to providing support and training to everyone in the appliance repair trade, hosts the Annual Service Training Institute (ASTI), a four-day event that includes classes on all aspects of the Appliance repair business: technical, marketing, business management, you name it. On top of that, you get the opportunity to meet and network with other techs, as well as appliance industry leaders, manufacturers, and, of course, us at Master Samurai Tech. We’ve been a sponsor of this event for several years now.
This year, the ASTI is being held in St. Petersburg, FL. I don't know about you, but we'll be more than happy to take a break from the New Hampshire winter for a few days!
If you've never been, we strongly recommend that you go. The knowledge and opportunities that the event provides are sure to help you make your business the best it can be.
No matter how large or small your service company is, you will find technical and business training at the ASTI to help make your business more profitable. With classes on Digital Marketing, Sales, Business Growth, Leadership, and technical training from all the major manufacturers, you'll go home ready to kick some appliance bootay and take your bidness to the next level. And, of course, there's networking and sharing ideas with other like-minded techs and business owners.
Still not convinced? We can make the deal even better: if you use this special coupon code when you sign up for the event, you get $50 off the registration fee:
