Doesn’t it make sense to go where the jobs are with the school that has the best industry connections to the major players?

In our Major Appliance/Basic Electricity course, you’ll learn about electricity and how it works; you’ll learn how to read a wiring diagram and how to use it to diagnose problems.  You will work on real washers, dryers, dishwashers, microwave ovens and other appliances, as you learn how to repair them.
