For example, if you don't understand electrical loads and voltage drops, how will you apply the standard troubleshooting technique of load analysis when you're analyzing a schematic to figure out why a motor isn't running? Or, another example, if you don't understand the difference between measuring voltage and measuring a voltage drop, how will you apply the time-honored troubleshooting tactic of half-splitting to locate the missing voltage in a circuit?
The video below is a sample from the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Course and explains the concepts of voltage, voltage drop, and loads:
The Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp teaches these and other basic skills of the trade in the Boot Camp's Fundamentals of Appliance Repair course and fills in these and other knowledge gaps that many techs have. Whether you're new to the trade or you've been in it for many years but have never had the opportunity (or time) to gain these fundamental technical skills, you can learn them conveniently online at your schedule and pace right from the comfort of your computer. The lessons are a combination of text, video, and audio and most of the lessons have a quiz at the end to test your knowledge and help you think about and apply the concepts to ensure you have a firm grasp of them. Most of all, it's a fun way to learn!
The specially-reduced tuition for the Beta class is $100 for the first half of the course, Part 1: Fundamentals. This is a fraction of what the full tuition for Part 1 will be. Financing is available.
If you would like to be considered for the Beta testing group, please submit your application by Tuesday, April 8, 2014.
The Boot Camp will be open for the Beta class to begin their studies on April 13.
Part 2 of the Boot Camp is still in development and its Beta period will be announced later.
Meanwhile, as promised in my last post, I've prepared a little morsel of the course which you are invited to sample. The purpose of this sample is not so much to give you a peek into the course content, although it does that, but rather to give you an idea of the look and feel of the course. If you're not familiar with online learning, this may help give you an idea of what it's like. To take the sample course, Kommen zie hither, bitte.
The other important part of the course, which you won't see unless you're enrolled, is the forum where you can ask questions and get help on the units you're working on that are giving you trouble. Between the quizzes and the forums, Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is the web's premiere interactive appliance repair learning experience.
You won't be able to click into the units and view the contents but you can see the basic course structure and the units that we've completed or are in the process of editing.
The course will be fully interactive with many of the units requiring an 80% score to pass and advance to the next unit or module. The quizzes are automatically and instantly graded so there's no waiting for the test results before moving on. In this way, the entire course is kept self-paced.
Also, if a student has questions about the material or needs more explanation about something, that's available in the Forums at the Boot Camp site.
Please let me know if you have any comments or questions! Would love to have your comments and feedback at this point in the development because it would be very easy to incorporate those changes.
