Small Appliance Repairs

Small Appliance Repairs

Overview

We use appliances everyday – at home and at work. Although most appliances are affordable, if you consider the cost to repair an appliance it is often similar to the cost of replacing the appliance. CTS College is offering this course to allow you to fix and repair your own small appliances without the hassle of calling a technician. The training is also ideal for persons seeking to become an appliance repair technician.

The course ensures learners understand the basics of electricity and electronics as well as the tools and test instruments required by every appliance repair technician. The course also delves into trouble shooting techniques and strategies as well as safety measures to apply when working with small appliances. The course is practical, therefore students will be required to repair several household countertop appliances.

The course is also ideal for employers who are seeking to train their appliance repair technicians as well as homeowners. This course is ideal for beginners given no previous experience in appliance repair is required.
