How the Courses Work

Each course is a series of lessons, with a mix of readings, audio and video presentations, photos, and diagrams. The lessons are on-demand, meaning that you can choose when, where, and how long you spend each study session. Each lesson has an automatically-graded quiz that must be taken before moving on to the next lesson. Simple!

A student can go through the training whenever they want, at their own speed. However, there are a number of features that make sure students get the support they need:

  • Appliantology: Students enrolled in the Core course get a free 6-month membership at our tech support site, Appliantology.org, with premium access to service manuals, tech-only help forums, and a large library of webinar recordings.
