If you have always enjoyed getting to the root of the problem and generally "fixing" things, then you should consider this program. You'll be trained to install, service, and repair commercial and household appliances, including ranges, freezers, refrigerators, washers and waste disposers and compactors. Working with the customer, you will determine why an appliance is not working and the most likely causes. Technicians prepare work orders, cost estimates and reports for billing purposes. Most technicians work alone with little supervision and the physical demands of the work vary. You may be required to move heavy appliances in excess of 25 kilograms and stand for long periods of time.
Apprentices may be eligible for financial support.
To enter an apprenticeship, you must have the educational qualifications required for the trade to which you apply. Entrance requirements are monitored by Alberta and Industry Training.
