Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Course: This is our flagship course, the place where most techs, even those with experience, begin their journey towards mastery. We give you all the foundational knowledge an appliance technician needs to have in this powerful course, focusing heavily on electric circuit analysis and troubleshooting using schematics, the essential skills needed to tackle any brand and model out there.
Refrigerator Troubleshooting and Repair: Once you have the fundamentals covered, refrigerators is the specialty area that will give you the most bang for your buck. Become well-versed in the principles of operation, common problems, troubleshooting and repair of single and dual evaporator refrigerators, split-phase and inverter-driven compressors.
Advanced Schematic Analysis and Troubleshooting Course: The key to the future of appliance repair lies in being able to troubleshoot modern appliances using their schematic diagrams. This course picks up where Fundamentals leaves off and helps you progress further down the road towards mastery.
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!
