Our intensive 10 Day Appliance Repair Training Foundation Course has been designed for people with little or no previous experience within the industry. On this course, you will arrive having maybe never even loaded a dishwasher or emptied a washing machine but by assessment day, you will have been taught the theory behind how the different range of appliances operate and you will have had many hours ‘hands on’ training in our Training Centre stripping appliances to component level, testing individual components and carrying out basic fault finding on the appliances using meters and logic.

During your training with us, we will cover:

  • On-Site Health & Safety and Risk Assessments
  • Safe Isolation and Appliance Safety Testing
  • Basic Plumbing and Installation of appliances
  • The cycles of appliances (the order in which things happen for a machine to finish its job)
  • Individual Components – Understanding of what they do, how they affect the appliance in the case of failure and how to test them during fault finding
  • Lots of hands on – Stripping appliances down to component level
  • Repairs to: Washing Machines, Tumble / Condenser and Heat Pump Dryers, Dishwashers, Electric Cookers / Ovens & Hobs, Microwaves and Fridge Freezers (including System Repairs – ReGassing R600a)

On completion of our appliance repair training, you will sit an assessment whereby upon passing, you will receive a CPD Accredited Certificate which will prove your attendance and that you have satisfied the NAC National Training Centres minimum entry criteria.

Once certified, benefits include:

  • Access to the NAC Network once completed if going Self Employed
  • Job Opportunities with NAC or other businesses after completion subject to location and vacancies
  • The ability to show potential employers that you have invested in your training off your own back which will help you find that perfect partnership to transfer the skills you learnt at the Training Centre to the Field
  • Access to The UK Domestic Appliance Engineer Facebook Group of Engineers that between all, have 1000’s of years experience!
  • Access to NAC Trade Partners – Assistance is getting what you need in order to do the job
