Outline of Appliance Repair Tech School Training, for
Troubleshooting and Repair of Major Household Appliances

*All of these subjects will be gone over in both 2 week and 3 week sessions. Although, in the 2 week session, there will be brief overview of most that are not directly pertinent to the repair and service of major appliances. In the 2 week session, more emphasis will be put on diagnosing and repairing major appliances, due to the time constraint.

Whether you take the 2 week or 3 week sessions, you will walk away with a very good foundation of knowledge about repairing appliances, that you did not have before you arrived. In most cases, this will allow you to go right out and start repairing and servicing appliances, and have a great amount of confidence in what you are doing, and also gain the confidence of the customer! Gaining the customer's confidence, is the key to establishing a good working relationship with them, and they will usually do your advertising for you, by word of mouth, which beats any paid advertising, bar none!
