If we are to avoid ISC work as the hari-kari-like sentence it is, how can a non-ISC appliantologist like me keep up with ALL company service bulletins and updates for factory-created boo-boos? Could one of the certified Masters start a forum for such wisdom?
I feel I should be practicing on refrigeration and circuit board-related repairs; junkers would be a good start, right? What method(s) do you guys use--junkers again, home study (which one)? What is a good home-study curriculum for electronics, or should I go to tech school (keep in mind I'm a working journeyman appliantologist)? What are some go-to tools for electronified appliances?
Thanks in advance,

Seems to me, no tech schools offer appliance repair. I look for this to change soon because we are definitely past the pliers-and-screwdriver level.
I also bought and scrounged a few scrap washers and dryers, rebuilt them and made a bit of profit. Good basic learning experience, but junkers will be old technology.

And we could say the same about sealed system work. Being an HVAC tech, I have the tools to deal with refrigeration systems. Recovery pump, vacuum pump, manifold gauges, all the hoses, recovery cylinders, pressure regulator, nitrogen cylinder, a good $1200 invested, plus the license to buy refrigerant. But it should never come up in appliance repair - we just need to know when and why the sealed system has failed.
But if you want to know more about motors and controls, tech school is the way to go.
