The Master Samurai Tech Alumni Program

Training at the Master Samurai Tech Academy is already a killer deal: comprehensive, state-of-the-art training that’s online and on-demand at tuition low enough that anyone can afford it.

Well now we’re kicking it up to 11 with the Master Samurai Tech Alumni program.

If you have been certified* in the Fundamentals course at the Master Samurai Tech Academy or at the Mr. Appliance Academy (Bundle 1 only), you can get full tech access to our tech support site, Appliantology.org, with no annual fee. Yes, as in FREE.

You heard that right.

You would be a Master Samurai Tech Alumnus at Appliantology with the same level of access and all the benefits of a Professional Appliantologist member (read all the benefits of PA membership here). That’s a $197/year value-- FREE!

What’s the catch? No catch but there is a small difference between PA and MST Alumnus membership.

PA members can continue to renew their membership at the annual rate and can download and request all the manuals they need regardless of how much or how little they participate in the forums.

The MST Alumnus membership is also annual but instead of paying with money, you “pay” with participation in the forums. Each year when your membership comes up for renewal, you need about a 2:1 post to download ratio to renew [UPDATED]. That means that as a general guideline, you need to have made two posts for every download.

This is super easy to do and active Appliantology members are already far exceeding this ratio without even trying. The idea here is not to place a burden (because it’s not)-- it’s to discourage people from getting the MST Alumnus membership and simply downloading manuals without interacting with the other members.

This really is a killer deal and a special perk for certified Fundamentals graduates! Why are we offering such a great deal? Simple:

  • We want to encourage more techs to successfully complete the Fundamentals course and get certified. This helps them be better techs and helps the trade in general.
  • Certified Fundamentals grads tend to be top tier techs who bring interesting questions and good problem solving insight to the forums. They are skilled techs and potentially valuable content contributors.

This deal is retroactive meaning that if you’re already a certified graduate of the Fundamentals course, you are eligible for this deal. If you’re already a PA member and a certified Fundamentals grad, we can move you to the MST Alumnus deal.

So how do you get started on this gravy train? Easy: just fill out this short form, we’ll review it and set up your MST Alumnus account here at Appliantology mo’scratchie (that’s Samurai-speak for “quickly”).

 

* Certified means that you met all currently required quiz and exam score requirements for the course; see this page for details.

Question: "What if I already am a Professional Appliantologist?"

Answer: If you'd like to get moved over to the MST Alumni program, whatever time you have left will be added on to the 1-year term. For example, say you have been a PA member for 8 months. If you switch to the MST Alumni program, you will be an Alumnus member for 1 year and 4 months before you need to renew. Alternatively, you can just wait until your PA membership expires before applying for the Alumnus membership.

Someone contacted me concerned about the 10:1 post to download ratio. I really don't want this to be a concern for anyone and, to ensure this, I've slashed the ratio to 2:1. It was easy before but now it's just ridiculously easy, which it's meant to be. I don't want people worrying about ratios when they download manuals. Normal use of the site as an engaged member is all it takes. Download all you want, post questions and help other members where you can and you'll be fine!
