What will the Vocation Courses provide?
Not everything every technician needs to know is in the courses. Those of us with experience in the appliance business know that would be impossible to create and provide. These course start your education, what the courses does provide is a solid foundation that will give you an opportunity to build your skills as an appliance service professional and earn a certificate of completion from Technical Training Associates, a quality training organization that’s been offering adult education programs in partnership with the community college system since 1985.
Jim Say, "The course is designed and delivered to you in a way that helps you succeed. That doesn’t mean that the program is easy and you can “slide” through. I wouldn’t be doing you any favors if I designed a program everybody could accomplish without effort. I’m very stubborn about that. When you hang your certificate of completion on the wall, you want to know that the institution granting it has high standards and wants to maintain credibility so your certificate is worth something. We’ll test your mettle, to be sure, but we’ll also be with you every step of the way until you complete all 5 program modules. Another thing I’m stubborn about is requiring all our program participants, no matter how long they’ve been in the business, to complete all modules in the same sequence as someone new to the appliance industry. We only grant certificates to technicians who successfully complete our entire program."
