Already having taken a one year HVAC-R course, I still felt that there were gaps in my understanding of the basic electric circuits that make sealed systems work. After doing the research I was led to MST. Now, having completed the core program, combined with my other education, I feel as though I am a much more rounded and capable tech. Looking forward to continuing my learning through the rest of my bundle and with exposure to the best techs on the planet!

Fantastic course, I was hesitant to sign up for appliance repair online but I learned way more than I would have at a traditional trade school, and at a much better price!

The Master Samurai Core Appliance Repair course is a must for anyone wanting to pursue a career in Appliance Repair. This course covers all the electrical basics and schematic basics that you will need to troubleshoot appliances in the field. The knowledge I have gained from taking the Core Appliance Repair course has given me the confidence take the Advanced Troubleshooting course and other courses that the Master Samurai Team offer. My goal is to complete all courses and retire from my 34 year career in Manufacturing and start a new career to build a successful business for myself in something I really enjoy doing and that is understanding how things operate and repairing broken equipment (appliances).
- Steve Fiss

★★★★★
Very helpful course for learning about electricity, circuits, circuit components, and how they are used in modern appliances. As a Field Service Technician, the knowledge I've gained through these lessons have saved me time and kept me from re-calls due to a misdiagnosis. This knowledge, paired with the info you can get with the Appliantology subscription leave you with all the tools necessary to ace just about any service call with ease. Well worth the investment in both. Thanks to the crew at MSTA! I plan to have this as curriculum for my future employees when I break out on my own.

This has been an awesome course. I have not done service work in almost 20 years. ALOT has changed since then. This course is bringing back things I have not used and forgotten and also things that I was not aware of. Well done, and laid out in a way so everything flows together. Looking forward to moving forward with the rest of the modules.
- John Persson

Love this course! I had recently started in the appliance repair industry. The first company I was with offered little training and Lil to no assistance. I walked into homes with that deer in the headlights look (not a good look). customers looked at me like the new kid in school. But now I walk into the customers home confidence and armed with the right tools to get the job done right the first time. I now have the knowledge to fix what ever appliance that I face. Thank you so much!!

Lets just give a big round of applause to Mr. & Mrs. Samurai for creating such a well rounded program. This course goes into a depth that ensures you have a strong understanding of the basic fundamentals of "appliantology". Don't ever give up & always study hard. They're strict about their scores because they want their students to excel, not barely get by. This program converts PCMs into real appliance repair techs. I now finish this course with confidence, and move onto the next!

★★★★★
It really is a great course to learn the fundamentals of electricity and appliance repair. It goes over basic electricity, how to read schematics and even goes over some parts you will see in the field. I have even used this base knowledge to help my dad in diagnosing issues with furnaces. If you are looking to get into appliance repair this is a great starting point. I will be continuing on with the remainder of the classes and can't wait to apply further knowledge in the field.

- william lewis

★★★★★
The Fundamentals Course is exactly what I needed to clear up a lot of questions I had before taking it. There many different examples of our troubleshooting videos that help explain the circuit, like the one using two loads to reduce the voltage to the timer motor or when the schematic showed how they used the motor run winding as a simple wire. I believe you when you tell us to perform the TST and have a game plan before you arrive at the job site. I can't wait for the next training I will start. When I finally start repairing appliances I won't feel that I totally on my own, if I have a question I will have my MST brothers and sisters to assist me. Great course, well done and you provided me a lot more in-depth information to be the best appliance repair tech.
- James Duddleston

★★★★★

- Dan D

★★★★☆
I get that you're looking to see if we know the information and with limited contact with us that can be hard, but if your look for specific answers to questions to get 100% on the question you should in some way allude to that or have just a little more guidance in the question to make it possible to get 100%. Otherwise a though the course was really good, although for some without a technical background I think this course would be a lot harder to try and truly understand and not just grasp the concept with time restraints. I personal enjoy learning about science, so I like to fully understand a subject not just "that all you need to know" but I do understand to this is for the average person. Thank you for considering my thoughts and reading all of this, hope you're having a good day Sincerely, Tyler Stajner
- Tyler Stajner

★★★★★
I enjoyed my studies VERY much. I do think that it would benefit new people (like myself) of the industry if the modules and units of the academy were more so synchronized to the hands-on training of the company they work for. For example, completing "x" amount of scheduled modules and units per week in combination with the corresponding hands-on training.

This course has opened my eyes to all kinds of things I didn't know before. It helped me to do well in basic electricity and motor control college classes, and helped me to understand electronic components and sensors, which has been very useful in my current line of work as a wind turbine technician. I hope to take another course soon. The information that MST offers is valuable on its own and their personalized support and willingness to answer questions is second to none. Recommended.

Be very careful when making the decision to choose an appliance repair school. I learned the hard way.

I have been an Appliance service tech for over 20 years. This course is excellent has so much useful information very in-depth. I'm close to 50 years old and was a little worried about how the online studying would go. But to my surprise once I got in a rhythm it was great. Basic electricity and basic Electronics the key points of this course to me. Going at your own pace you can really take it all in.

I learned alot. I think ohms law might of been easier for me to understand if I saw it action as it was being explained. and sometimes samurai talked very fast with alot of technical info, motors is what jumps to mind. But with that said Im glad I picked. MST Thank You

Fundamental learning is critical and I'm extremely thankful for a course as jam-packed as this one! Thank you for making learning as interactive as you have!

★★★★★
I absolutely LOVED this course. I will admit to being a little wary of what an online course could offer. This surprised, impressed and really challenged me. I have spent the last 23 yrs working in aviation and thought I had a pretty solid background in electronics and basic electricity. Boy was I wrong. This course reinforced what I already knew and added a whole new level of information I didn't know I needed. The only thing I have to complain about is not taking the plunge and purchasing the entire bundle. Once again, this course was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about it. I will definitely be taking the rest of your courses. Thank you Team Samurai.

The Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Training Course far exceeded my expectations. This course takes you from the basics of electricity all the way to mastery of troubleshooting and repairing appliances. It is very comprehensive covering such things as the tools you need (physical and mental) and applying the “10-Step Tango” a methodical approach that can save you lots of time and really help you be more successful. I got a sense of professionalism and even admiration for the appliance repair trade. I’m grateful that I found Master Samurai Tech and its great team. They were there every step of the way with encouragement and guidance. Event hough it took focus and dedication to complete all the work, it was a lot of fun and very interesting. I highly recommend this course. Thank you. Abe Almonte (AKA: honeybadger)

★★★★★
Even with some repair experience under my belt, the information in this course was invaluably useful to me. The review of essential basics such as Ohms law and the properties of gas helped cement the information in my brain, and the modules on control boards and motors in particular really demystified the subject for me. I am much more confident in my troubleshooting skills after completing this course and I would highly recommend it to anyone new (or new-ish) to the appliance repair industry.
- Jon Wilde

★★★★★
The course was a great learning experience. From someone who is a novice at the how the appliance works, this is a good intro course (I only look at the outcome not why they are not working or not thinking about how it's supposed to work). Course gives enough detail to answer the how and why noted above. Looking forward to diving in deeper with the other courses.

I Started the fundamentals course with very limited knowledge. Took about a month and a half of serious study time, a few hours a day. I was very impressed by the content and felt I gained a lot by taking the course and plan to take others.

the course is VERY challenging. everything was geared toward learning the material. i think its a ton of material to learn in a short time and i think the electricity section should be divide for the midterm. but aside from my struggles this has been a great experience.

Great for beginners. Some of the videos are long winded and I wish transcripts of the video could have been given. It would have made following along to the videos a lot easier.

The Samurai team offers quick and helpful feedback whenever needed. Site offers a simple to use layout complete with student forums, video seminars, and some well integrated humor to keep things interesting. Overall quite affordable as well.

The Fundamentals of Appliance Course is well organized, very challenging and will require a commitment of time & effort in order to successfully complete the course materials. I believe the commitment of the student is well worth the value of providing new skills and brushing-up/improving on current skills. If a technician has the desire to rise above the "average" technicians in the industry, the cost of the program and time "invested" will benefit the technician for life.
- Carl Powischill

★★★★★
The team at Samurai are simply the best. I came from a professional background where the only tool you needed was a keyboard and pen. Less than a month of dedicated study and I can knock out many of the simpler repairs I've seen so far! Love the program and the support they offer!
- Ryan Perpich

★★★★☆
Some of the questions throughout the course had awkward wording that made them more confusing than they needed to be.

Scott and Susan I really enjoyed the fundamentals course. I have been doing appliance repair for over 20 years and still found it to be challenging. I am currently a one man operation but when I start adding more technicians they will definitely be taking this course.
- Grant

★★★★★
This course was very informative and well organized. Correspondence with instructors was very helpful. I would recommend this course to any technician starting out or looking to improve.
- Michael Felician

★★★★★
As someone with no appliance experience, this course had a lot of good content and definitely taught me a great, basic way to troubleshoot the electronic portions of appliances. It was not what I was expecting, as there was not much information on individual appliances and common faults or disassembly and assembly information, but I believe that I have a firm grasp on how to properly diagnose an electrical fault and that is most likely the hardest part to understand in appliance repair.
- CHRIS GRAVINA

★★★★★
I've learned alot! Especially with basic electricity, thank you master samurai for showing me the ropes!

Excellent class. I thought that I had a basic understanding of electronics before I took this class. There were huge gaps in my understanding, things that I was not even aware of not knowing. Trying to troubleshoot before taking this class was frustrating. Now I understand the process involved. Way to go Master Samurai! It was an honor to enter your dojo.

★★★☆☆
I learned a ton from this course. Gives you so much you can use in the field. But I do feel like that the courses are sometimes all over the place. You go from on unit to another and then back. Just sometimes hard to follow.

Nice course to take and understand how the electrical load get what it need to run.
- Sukhdev Singh

★★★★★
I had little knowledge in this field. After this course I realized how wrong I was in fixing appliances. My technique was archaic and wasted a lot of time and money. After learning the "Ten Step Trouble Shooting Tango" I no longer needed to TAKE THE ENTIRE UNIT apart in order to find or fix the problem. You can go at your own pace in this class and ask questions when necessary. I have recommended this course to everyone in the field and hope that they will learn as much as I did.
- David

★★★★★
I think the course is great. The material is well organized, good presentation, and at the right pace. I feel very comfortable and well equipped to enter the field as a technician.
