Kick Appliance Butt and Make Money
The Core Appliance Repair training course is based on a simple principle: you can’t fix something if you never knew how it worked in the first place. Our training starts in the guts of appliances, where you’ll learn the core technology of each: the basics of electricity, gas, and motors, as well as how all the parts work together to make the appliance cool, cook or clean. We then work our way out to understand how this core technology can break down, and how you can troubleshoot those breakdowns from the outside.
This training applies to every model by every brand, so once you master the course material, you’ll never again replace an appliance part because you hope it’s the source of a problem, you’ll replace it because you know it is. (In some cases, you may not have to replace anything at all.) The training will definitely challenge you, but none of our graduates have ever complained. They’re too busy kicking appliance butt and making money.
And if you’re thinking to yourself, “I’ve been in this business for twenty years, I don’t need to take a course on the basics,” why not put your skills to the test first? If you ace our You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know quiz, you’ve proven worthy of moving on to our advanced courses. If you struggle, that’s alright, most technicians do. It’s admirable that you’ve made it this far with just your handiness and your instincts, but it’s time you learned the core skills of every appliance repair master. Your job will get easier, more fun and earn you more money if you do.
