Build the foundation for a successful career in appliance repair

Fred’s Appliance Academy offers a diverse technical training program that covers all aspects of appliance repair. Our hands-on program provides students with the skills and experience to service all major appliances, from washing machines and dryers, to ranges and refrigerators.

We offer a 3 week program consisting of classroom instruction, hands-on practice, troubleshooting and repair. Imagine, in less than a month’s time, Fred’s will prepare you for real-world employment in a field where there’s never a shortage of business. At the end of the course, each student will take the nationally recognized NASTeC (National Appliance Service Technician Certification) exam.

More than just an appliance repair school

Besides technical training, Fred’s Academy focuses on the many other aspects of life on the job. We want our students to be fully prepared not just for fixing appliances, but also for dealing with the needs of customers. We also provide computer training so that our students can learn how to quickly find technical information on the internet, and lookup parts on manufacturer websites.

At Fred’s Appliance Academy, we essentially put you in our shoes for 3 weeks. Appliance repair is what we do for a living. Once you graduate, it’s our hope and expectation that you’ll be able to launch your own career, and enjoy the same fulfillment we do.
