Samurai Tech Check Application

Note: If you have already purchased the Samurai Tech Check, please log in so you can access the exam.

The Samurai Tech Check is a timed exam that will evaluate the current level of a tech's grasp of the fundamentals of appliance repair: basic electricity, basic electronics, reading schematics, troubleshooting, gas, and electric motor systems.

Why these areas and not disassembly/parts-changing knowledge? Because a technician who is well-versed in the basic skills listed above is poised to effectively troubleshoot and repair any appliance out there. The other layer of appliance repair skills - disassembly, reassembly, and parts for specific types and models - is readily learned on-the-job and/or with a little online research ahead of time.

The Samurai Tech Check can be used by a self-employed tech for himself, or by a business owner who wants to evaluate an employee or potential hire for job readiness and training needs.

Whoever pays for the Tech Check is the one who will receive the report after the exam has been taken. The report will identify areas of strengths and weaknesses, as well as give recommendations for training.

The Samurai Tech Check is $50, but you will receive a $40 credit towards any technical course at the Academy!
