What does it mean to be Certified by Master Samurai Tech?
Many customers like to see that a repairman is “certified,” but they essentially never ask where the certification came from. Since there is no universally-recognized standard certification in the US for appliance repair professionals, it’s up to you to choose the best place to get your Certification.
Master Samurai Tech has an excellent reputation for training excellence in the appliance repair industry.
The Mr. Appliance® franchise organization and Sub-Zero Group, Inc. have both chosen MST to provide online technical training for their tech communities. We have provided training classes at national and regional training events for the United Servicers Association. Many multi-tech businesses as use MST Academy to train their crews, and individual owner-operators have taken our courses to begin or boost their business.
Earning MST Certification for your work at the Academy demonstrates a commitment to your profession and an unparalleled depth of knowledge.
If you are wanting to impress an employer, this will do it. If you own your own business and simply need to impress your customers - you will.
How is MST Certification different from others?
Most certifications are based on simply passing a single exam. MST Certification shows that you passed dozens of quizzes and exams while a receiving a structured and rigorous education in the essential knowledge and skills of the modern appliance technician.
Many people ask us about EPA Certification, which is required for techs who will be working with refrigerant. This certification simply shows that you’ve passed a test regarding refrigerant handling. You have to show that you understand the regulations and certain safety procedures. It does not demonstrate your technical competence or ability to troubleshoot and repair sealed systems.
You can search online for a place that is authorized to offer the EPA “Section 608” test and certification. Here is one example: https://www.epatest.com/608/
