Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Update

appliance training and 2 more...
Just wanted to give a quick update on the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp. Don't think we've forgotten about it! In fact, just the opposite-- developing the course has been an all-consuming task for me and Mrs. Samurai (she's a world-class technical editor). You can get a sneak-peak and what we've been doing at the Boot Camp website: http://ApplianceTechBootCamp.com

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.

New and Improved Appliantology Membership Packages

In my ever-evolving quest to offer my users the very best online appliance repair help and information experience, I've improved the membership packages available here at Appliantology.

The free Grasshopper package will continue to be available as is. But the Apprentice and Professional Appliantologist packages have been upgraded and, incredibly, made even better... as if that was even possible, right?

For starters, the free Apprenticeship package using the Facebook coupon promotion has ended. It was starting to take up too much of my time going back and forth with people because they couldn't figure out how to do a screenshot, or share the coupon on their Facebook wall, or whatever. Then I had people who had gotten the free Apprenticeship complaining about the file download quotas or outright lying about how much they downloaded (as if I can't check that). And I wanna send out a special thanks to all the folks who sent me nasty, snarky emails because I was using Facebook for the free deal. Bless their hearts!

So, like Daniel in Babylon, I saw the writing on the wall and realized the free Apprenticeship deal had become a time-sucking, headache-inducing liability that seemed to bring out the worst in people. Yea verily, it's outta here. Now it's time to focus on bringing even more awesomeness to the Apprentice and Appliantologist programs!

Both the Apprenticeship and Professional Appliantologist packages have been upgraded in every way imaginable!

Apprentice Package: The download quotas for files from the vast and ever-growing library of technical documents in the Downloads section have increased FROM 3 files/day, 6/week, 9/month TO 4/day, 8/week, and a whopping 20/month! It is still not auto-renewing because it's intended for DIYers who probably just need help on a pressing problem or two at home and then they're done with appliance repair until the next thing breaks. But you can manually renew as often as you like. The fee on the Apprenticeship package has increased by a mere $2, from $10 to $12, for the same two-month term.

Professional Appliantologist Package: The download quotas have also been increased FROM 10 files/day, 20/week, 80/month TO 15/day, 30/week, and an incredible, eye-popping 100/month! It still includes access to the world-famous and coveted Repair Manual Stash™. The Professional Appliantologist package is an auto-renewing subscription package because, as the name implies, it's intended for techs who fix appliances for a living and so would need on-going repair help either in the forums or from reference material in the Downloads section. The fee on the Professional Appliantologist package has increased by 10 measly beans, from $55/year to $65/year.

If you subscribed to the Professional Appliantologist package at the old price of $55/year, your annual subscription fee will not change as long as you do not cancel your subscription. And you still get the benefit of the increased file download quotas. How's that for value?

I'm always looking for ways to increase value for my valued users here at Appliantology and, with your help, will continue to improve the premiere appliance repair resource on the web!

Summary of the appliance repair search arsenal and capabilities available to you at Appliantology.org

search, site search, google

And as anyone who's spent any time searching this site knows, there's gold in them thar old topics!

That's why it's important to remember to use the site's google search box as well as the standard box. The google box will search and find older stuff as well as newer entries. But the wild card search parameters "*" doesn't work for numbers (this is a google shortcoming probably done to prevent their servers from bogging down searching for all occurences of jpt4* in an alpha string then billions of results if included in a numerical or alpha numerical string)

The main Appliantolgy search box will respect the wild card "*" for alpha-numerical searches but the searches are limited to entries made in the last year or so.
