Very impressed with the whole experience. These various courses filled in lots of gaps in my knowledge and understanding of various electrical and appliance topics.
- Craig Smith

★★★★★
I've learned so much, and I've even been able to apply some of what I've learned already. I'm excited to learn plenty more.
- Sean P Timmins

★★★★★
A little background, I came into the course with no background in appliance repair of any kind, and now I feel confident that I can make an informed analysis of an appliance problem. The course was very informative, and the technique you use to teach is spot on. I came into the course thinking I knew certain things and was proven wrong. I would highly recommend this course for anybody in the industry. My goal going forward is to become one of the best repair techs in the area. Thank you team Samurai!

The team at Samurai are simply the best. I came from a professional background where the only tool you needed was a keyboard and pen. Less than a month of dedicated study and I can knock out many of the simpler repairs I've seen so far! Love the program and the support they offer!

I have graduated from Freds Appliance Academy, recently. Taking Master Samurai’s Core Courses have sharpened my understanding of the basic principles. I feel I’m building a good foundation in myself. I’ve been looking forward to all the subject matter that they cover. They make it fresh and keep a little bit of humor to it ( Before he forgot a gift for Chuck Norris, Santa Clause was real). Thanks for making learning fun with your program. I’m keeping Master Samurai’s Alumni in my toolbox for sure. Scott

Some of the questions throughout the course had awkward wording that made them more confusing than they needed to be.
- Jason Cardona

★★★★★
Surprisingly difficult, but the courses do a phenomenal job in helping you grasp the material. I will definitely be referring people. Thanks so much for helping me get started towards a new career path!
- Kris Lamb

★★★★★
Worth much more than what it cost me. I had studied basic electricity and basic refrigeration way, way back in the day. I had retained some of it and with the internet being what it is today I could have filled in the gaps of what I had forgotten and what I yet needed to learn on my own, but it would have take a very long time. Having taken formal classes, in classroom settings, they always moved at such a slow pace that I would find myself bored and losing interest. Having all of this information gathered, put in order, presented in a manor that built on each previous concept, offered in a way that allowed me to learn at my own pace, with great support and help from the Master Samurai and at a small fraction of the price of traditional classroom training made it an enjoyable and valuable experience. I can't wait to get started on the other courses. Thank you Master Samurai.
- Jim Vitale

★★★★★

★★★★★
I learned alot. I think ohms law might of been easier for me to understand if I saw it action as it was being explained. and sometimes samurai talked very fast with alot of technical info, motors is what jumps to mind. But with that said Im glad I picked. MST Thank You

★★★★★
great coarse i would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn appliance repair
- Raymond Ritchie

★★★★★
Good comprehensive course.
- Russell

★★★★★
After 35 years of appliance repair I still learned a lot from this training. It tied up many loose ends and provided invaluable information about how all the components operate internally. From inverter boards to gas regulators to BLDC motors, I now understand how these things work. The basic electricity module is a must for any new appliance tech. This course is intensive but its content is a must for any tech that wants to move beyond 'hack' status.
- Dennis Huff

★★★★★
Ive been in the industry for 20+ years and i still took a lot away from this course. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get into the appliance industry.

- Edson

★★★★★
While this course in particular was a lot to take in and overwhelming at times i definitely learned something and have been able to apply it while training on the job. I am someone who has always learned better by doing but the continuous study online has helped better understand a lot about appliance repair. I will definitely be looking at taking other courses as i progress in appliance repair.
- Felipe Garcia

★★★★★
Very helpful course for learning about electricity, circuits, circuit components, and how they are used in modern appliances. As a Field Service Technician, the knowledge I've gained through these lessons have saved me time and kept me from re-calls due to a misdiagnosis. This knowledge, paired with the info you can get with the Appliantology subscription leave you with all the tools necessary to ace just about any service call with ease. Well worth the investment in both. Thanks to the crew at MSTA! I plan to have this as curriculum for my future employees when I break out on my own.
- Carl Wagner

★★★★★
This was tougher than I thought! English is my second language and it was hard to master both the content and the language. I feel like I have a good base of knowledge now that will continue to grow as I start my appliance repair business! I look forward to taking more Master Samurai courses!
- Dany

★★★★★
I love this course. It is phenomenal. It is challenging, which is good because it helps you to think about what you are doing.

- Terry Klassen

★★★★★
An excellent course. I had the privilege of receiving on the job training as well as working this course and it has helped me vastly improve in my understanding of things just 1 short month ago I had absolutely no clue about. If you want to get started in the industry or just want to make sure you have the fundamentals I highly recommend this course as well as the other courses therein.
- Philip Pixler

I am not a huge fan of the webinars for training, but other that that it is up to me to apply what I have learned in the field to get a full grasp of all the knowledge you have provided.
- Adam Bebee

★★★★★
Started the course with minimal experience in the field, and now I feel confident (with the base knowledge I gained from this course) to continue on to be a successful appliance tech. I would recommend the fundamentals course to anyone just starting out. Thanks samurai!

I'm glad I picked this for my new career the things that I learned in this course was great. the attention to detail in this course is second to none. I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who is looking for another career to start.
- James Becker

★★★★★
The Fundamentals of Appliance Course is well organized, very challenging and will require a commitment of time & effort in order to successfully complete the course materials. I believe the commitment of the student is well worth the value of providing new skills and brushing-up/improving on current skills. If a technician has the desire to rise above the "average" technicians in the industry, the cost of the program and time "invested" will benefit the technician for life.
- Carl Powischill

★★★★★
The course was enjoyable while still being challenging and educational. It has helped me to preform on the same level as my senior technician coworkers. The course gave me troubleshooting skills to solve problems they have seen for decades.

★★★★★
The Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Training Course far exceeded my expectations. This course takes you from the basics of electricity all the way to mastery of troubleshooting and repairing appliances. It is very comprehensive covering such things as the tools you need (physical and mental) and applying the “10-Step Tango” a methodical approach that can save you lots of time and really help you be more successful. I got a sense of professionalism and even admiration for the appliance repair trade. I’m grateful that I found Master Samurai Tech and its great team. They were there every step of the way with encouragement and guidance. Event hough it took focus and dedication to complete all the work, it was a lot of fun and very interesting. I highly recommend this course. Thank you. Abe Almonte (AKA: honeybadger)

The well paced and very thorough courses allowed me to keep pace with our more experienced techs in just a few weeks. Highly responsive and great support group.

Well thought out and very good information to have for any appliance repair tech
- Mike Montgomery

★★★★★
This coarse goes into great depth beyond just understanding knowledge that is only job applicable. I was able to understand the science behind the principles how it works and why it operates in the function it does. I am not a math guy, I struggled in school in all math courses. this class is so simple I was able to fully grasp all concepts. everything is thoroughly explained and you get some repetition to ensure you master each concept.

- Ben Johnson

★★★★★
Love this course! I had recently started in the appliance repair industry. The first company I was with offered little training and Lil to no assistance. I walked into homes with that deer in the headlights look (not a good look). customers looked at me like the new kid in school. But now I walk into the customers home confidence and armed with the right tools to get the job done right the first time. I now have the knowledge to fix what ever appliance that I face. Thank you so much!!
- Robert Vincent

★★★★★
Very good overview on the subject matter. Self paced program so no anxiety to rush through the course. Enjoyed the simple yet concise approach to problem solving and trouble shooting issues.
- Rory McNeil

★★★★★
I had little knowledge in this field. After this course I realized how wrong I was in fixing appliances. My technique was archaic and wasted a lot of time and money. After learning the "Ten Step Trouble Shooting Tango" I no longer needed to TAKE THE ENTIRE UNIT apart in order to find or fix the problem. You can go at your own pace in this class and ask questions when necessary. I have recommended this course to everyone in the field and hope that they will learn as much as I did.
- David

Fantastic course, I was hesitant to sign up for appliance repair online but I learned way more than I would have at a traditional trade school, and at a much better price! Thanks for the knowledge team samurai I would recommend this not only to people interested in appliance repair but also anyone that would like a solid foundational knowledge of electricity.

I have taken a lot of online training in the past for diesel mechanics through many different brands.

Well constructed training. Rigorous. Valuable
- Terry Rogers

★★★★★
I've been a technician in appliance repair for 15+ years. I'm pretty good, but I always felt something was lacking. Wasn't quite a parts changing monkey , yet not quite the technician I could be. I signed up with MST and they didn't disappoint! I recommend anyone getting into the field or even veterans of the trade to take the course. The lessons are easy to understand. If you don't understand something and you go to the "ask the teachers forum" help is only a few minutes away. I will be taking more classes in the future !

This is a great course with a massive amount of information. I've been a service tech for nearly 30 years and learned a lot of really great stuff here to help with my diagnostic abilities. Whether you are new to the appliance service industry or a seasoned veteran I highly recommend taking this course. I have made this a must for all my techs.

★★★★★
Very helpful and iformative.
- Brian Correia

★★★★★
The Fundamentals Course is exactly what I needed to clear up a lot of questions I had before taking it. There many different examples of our troubleshooting videos that help explain the circuit, like the one using two loads to reduce the voltage to the timer motor or when the schematic showed how they used the motor run winding as a simple wire. I believe you when you tell us to perform the TST and have a game plan before you arrive at the job site. I can't wait for the next training I will start. When I finally start repairing appliances I won't feel that I totally on my own, if I have a question I will have my MST brothers and sisters to assist me. Great course, well done and you provided me a lot more in-depth information to be the best appliance repair tech.
- James Duddleston

★★★★★
Great course. Very thorough. I think this course does a great job giving you an in depth look at the fundamentals of appliance repair.

★★★★★
The Master Samurai Core Appliance Repair course is a must for anyone wanting to pursue a career in Appliance Repair. This course covers all the electrical basics and schematic basics that you will need to troubleshoot appliances in the field. The knowledge I have gained from taking the Core Appliance Repair course has given me the confidence take the Advanced Troubleshooting course and other courses that the Master Samurai Team offer. My goal is to complete all courses and retire from my 34 year career in Manufacturing and start a new career to build a successful business for myself in something I really enjoy doing and that is understanding how things operate and repairing broken equipment (appliances).

Awesome course I have only being repairing appliances for a short time. I noticed an improvement in my efficiency, in home visit time, and most importantly accurate diagnosis. I even get home earlier lol

Great course. Very informative.

★★★★★
This a great course that really helped make sense of the measurements you need to take to troubleshoot appliances as well as what those readings really mean. It provides you with a base knowledge on electricity that really sets you up for success in the rest of the course when it comes to troubleshooting circuits.

Already having taken a one year HVAC-R course, I still felt that there were gaps in my understanding of the basic electric circuits that make sealed systems work. After doing the research I was led to MST. Now, having completed the core program, combined with my other education, I feel as though I am a much more rounded and capable tech. Looking forward to continuing my learning through the rest of my bundle and with exposure to the best techs on the planet!
- Anthony Harley

★★★★★
honestly the course is great only thing i wasnt a fan of is the written parts of the midterm and the final because im not the greatest at typing on a keyboard on a computer. But i made it through and im glad. Im also a big fan of doing the work at your own pace
- Richard A Brown II

★★★★★
Lets just give a big round of applause to Mr. & Mrs. Samurai for creating such a well rounded program. This course goes into a depth that ensures you have a strong understanding of the basic fundamentals of "appliantology". Don't ever give up & always study hard. They're strict about their scores because they want their students to excel, not barely get by. This program converts PCMs into real appliance repair techs. I now finish this course with confidence, and move onto the next!

Anyone who is interested in a great foundation in appliance repair will benefit from this course. The information is concise and thorough, and the insight of Mr. and Mrs. Samurai is an invaluable tool in helping to attain your goals. Put forth your best effort, keep a positive attitude, and you will not be disappointed!
- Brian McGraw

★★★★☆
I get that you're looking to see if we know the information and with limited contact with us that can be hard, but if your look for specific answers to questions to get 100% on the question you should in some way allude to that or have just a little more guidance in the question to make it possible to get 100%. Otherwise a though the course was really good, although for some without a technical background I think this course would be a lot harder to try and truly understand and not just grasp the concept with time restraints. I personal enjoy learning about science, so I like to fully understand a subject not just "that all you need to know" but I do understand to this is for the average person. Thank you for considering my thoughts and reading all of this, hope you're having a good day Sincerely, Tyler Stajner

great course very informative very well designed only reason for the 4 stars is i feel some of the questions could have been worded better it made it easy to make mistakes and get confused
- robert farrell

Don't expect to become an expert technician after completing this course. But if you plan on becoming one, this is where you begin. This is the Foundation on which you start building the temple of Knowledge.

- Joe Barnette

★★★★★
I thoroughly recommend The Master Samurai Tech fundamentals course, not only does it fill tons of gaps you may have in your knowledge in the field. It also refreshes and clarifies other knowledge you think you know! Also, Scott and Susan have really excelled here on this course, making it both capturing and also entertaining in some cases, with a handful of chuckles along the way. My only regret in taking it thus far, was not utilizing the student forum, I've certainly read through a handful of it, but did not really dive in to deep. I look forward to knocking out the other courses, and becoming an active member in the Appliantology forums! Wishing everyone good appliance fortune and an eternity of first call completes! (This course will help the latter!)

Outstanding is just not a proper word for this course and Team Samurai. When I first began looking at Appliance Repair training, I gave a long look at the two major on site schools as they both offered extensive training and support. But after talking things over with my wife, I felt more comfortable with online training. Thorough research led me here and I have not regretted it. Taking on this training on my schedule made all the difference. I'm not sure I would have fared so well with a condensed timeline on the electricity and electronics training. Plus, with Scott's background in the Navy and Susan's help and training, this was the Total Training experience. Looking forward to the coming months as I continue to hone my new craft. Hat's off to Team Samurai..!!!!

I just want to say that I enjoyed the Core course very much, it really was challenging, not easy for sure. It was well worth it getting up early in the morning to learn something new, not gonna lie some of the units I needed to go over two or three times until I was sure I understood everything. I really do recommend this course to every person wanting to get in the Appliance repair industry. I checked out others but there was none like this one. I like the way they get involved and always available. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Samurai. -Sem Palomares-

This is the analytical approach to appliance repair and troubleshooting you need to be the best possible field service tech.
- Drew White

★★★★★
I really enjoyed taking the course and learning so much about the " complex world" of appliantology. It was more scientific than I realized. Somewhat Metaphysical "where does voltage come from and how the hell did we ever find it!?". Definitely interesting and inspiring to perceive how our engineers have created these machines that keep the beer cold and the clothes clean. I've been trying to help my son-in-law get his new franchise (Handyman Pro) up and running and I believe I have found the "niche" that gives his business that added punch. We can start taking on the appliance leads that we have previously been avoiding. So I will be staying with you for the additional courses on Refrigerator/Washer/Dryer/Advanced trouble shooting etc until I have fully embraced the "Bushido" of appliance repair!! Hai! P.S. Thanks for all of your hard work in constructing these courses.

Great course. Lots of detailed explanations. Covers everything. Good humor sprinkled throughout to keep things interesting. Recommend to everyone interested in learning appliance repair.
- Rob K

★★★★★
I enjoyed my studies VERY much. I do think that it would benefit new people (like myself) of the industry if the modules and units of the academy were more so synchronized to the hands-on training of the company they work for. For example, completing "x" amount of scheduled modules and units per week in combination with the corresponding hands-on training.
- JP

★★★★★
I’ve really enjoyed this course. Scott is an excellent teacher. It’s obvious that he and the other instructors have a lot of experience and they all do a great job. They make complex things simple and easy to understand. Whenever I’ve had questions they are easy to get a hold of. I definitely recommend this for anyone interested in learning appliance repair.

★★★★★
Excellent course for seasoned vet or someone just starting appliance repair. Very useful knowledge. Great teaching by our Sensei.
- Scott Almy

★★★★★
Overall I enjoyed the training modules. As I started working through modules and units, it was nice to see what I was learning in the field while traveling along with other technicians at work. It was great seeing the material I was learning about was directly applicable to what was being done in the field. My only complaint would be about quotes from within the videos that were seemingly random. I watched every video and would take notes on key or main points, but comments that were very generic would pop up in quiz questions and because they seemed like an "off the cuff" comment I didn't notate them. I understand your purpose here, trying to make sure the videos are watched, but I would find it more beneficial if it were key points or fact based comments. Thanks for the knowledge so far, here's to the next course!

Be very careful when making the decision to choose an appliance repair school. I learned the hard way. I spent much time and money on another program, only to find that I didn't feel confident enough to do right for my customers. I could have been that "Parts Changing Monkey", but that's not acceptable to me. Thank You Master Samurai. I anxiously await my other courses.

★★★★★
I think that the information covered allows for a good understanding of appliances and how they function. There is enough information to get you started in appliance repair. With this information and hands on, on the job training, I am confident that I will reach the level of excellence I am trying to reach.

I think this course was well put together. the information is great for an inexperienced technician and the help provided from forums and everything was great.

★★★★★
After being signed up for the course by my work I was very happy for the opportunity to learn more about my trade. I was confident in my skills as a young technician but lacking in the theory.. the course has many videos, reading material and quizzes to work through. There is also a midterm and final exam. The course is not easy but if you put the work in and take notes I believe anyone can pass. I recently passed and I can honestly say I have already applied many aspects of the course and troubleshooting techniques to my everyday work. I would recommend this course to technicians you and old!

I have been an Appliance service tech for over 20 years. This course is excellent has so much useful information very in-depth. I'm close to 50 years old and was a little worried about how the online studying would go. But to my surprise once I got in a rhythm it was great. Basic electricity and basic Electronics the key points of this course to me. Going at your own pace you can really take it all in.

Enjoyed the Core course. Many things were "Back to Basics" for me which refreshed my memory. But other material was very valuable, especially troubleshooting rules and strategies.

great course for someone who has no experience working with appliance but is willing to gain the skill
- Jesus E. Tejeda

★★★★★
As someone with no appliance experience, this course had a lot of good content and definitely taught me a great, basic way to troubleshoot the electronic portions of appliances. It was not what I was expecting, as there was not much information on individual appliances and common faults or disassembly and assembly information, but I believe that I have a firm grasp on how to properly diagnose an electrical fault and that is most likely the hardest part to understand in appliance repair.
- CHRIS GRAVINA

Very thorough content. The lessons for Basic Electricity and Basic Electronics, in particular, have been a tremendous help for the last two years of repairing appliances.

I thought the Fundamentals Course is well put together and challenging. Was worried the content would just be basic recycled jargon; but pleasantly surprised by how the Modules were structured and the step-by-step instruction.
- John B.

★★★★★
I took this course as a sort of a refresher, and to see if it could help me with troubleshooting different systems. Although I'm in the HVAC/R field, I still found it to be very useful. The Electricity Module itself is worth it, having been through trade school and with some time in the field, I would say that this is a strong course that helps build up the basics, and gives you the basic knowledge that you need to hold your own in the field.

It really is a great course to learn the fundamentals of electricity and appliance repair. It goes over basic electricity, how to read schematics and even goes over some parts you will see in the field. I have even used this base knowledge to help my dad in diagnosing issues with furnaces. If you are looking to get into appliance repair this is a great starting point. I will be continuing on with the remainder of the classes and can't wait to apply further knowledge in the field.
- Dylan

★★★★★
Even with some repair experience under my belt, the information in this course was invaluably useful to me. The review of essential basics such as Ohms law and the properties of gas helped cement the information in my brain, and the modules on control boards and motors in particular really demystified the subject for me. I am much more confident in my troubleshooting skills after completing this course and I would highly recommend it to anyone new (or new-ish) to the appliance repair industry.

★★★★★
This course was probably the best investment I could have made to help me excel in this field. The Core Course was tough for me! I don't have a background in electronics but my years in home renovation helped with the electrical theory. There is a lot to learn about modern appliance technology but I really found all of it fascinating and even entertaining. I very much enjoyed the course and I KNOW it has helped me set a very strong foundation to continue building upon. Looking forward to the advanced courses!

★★★★★
I absolutely LOVED this course. I will admit to being a little wary of what an online course could offer. This surprised, impressed and really challenged me. I have spent the last 23 yrs working in aviation and thought I had a pretty solid background in electronics and basic electricity. Boy was I wrong. This course reinforced what I already knew and added a whole new level of information I didn't know I needed. The only thing I have to complain about is not taking the plunge and purchasing the entire bundle. Once again, this course was outstanding. I can't say enough good things about it. I will definitely be taking the rest of your courses. Thank you Team Samurai.

After careful review of all Appliance courses I decided to go with MST, and I can honestly say that it was the right choice for me.

I can not wait to see what is in store for my next few courses.

This course is essential, it teaches you what you need to know to properly diagnose problems rather than guess your way through. I would highly recommend to anyone learning to work on appliances to take this course and seriously apply yourself in it.

This course did a great job of efficiently making sure that I understood the basic theory without getting too deep on things I won't apply. It then showed me how to apply these theories to real world problems. It really increased my confidence and I know it will save me lots of time and frustration in the future. I can't speak for any of the other appliance repair course because I haven't tried them, but this one is great value for the money and taught me a lot. Thanks for putting it together!

Found my source for learning, unlike other distance learning experience, MST and staff knock the ball outta the park, in promptness on reply's as well as content covered and affordability. Lets not forget about the alternate material @ Appliantology.org videos ect., very qualified people.

This course was challenging, but rewarding. My favorite part is my increased understanding of basic electricity. I'm not currently repairing appliances, but hope to move into it shortly. So I'm starting pretty much from scratch knowledge-wise. If I can do it, so can you!

This is a great training platform for new and experienced technicians. Great to work with Mr. and Mrs. Samurai with questions. I wish this was available to myself when i first starting out in HVAC and appliance repair in 1990. My company will be using this training for all future new technicians. Thank you for the refresher and new knowledge i learned.

This has been an awesome course. I have not done service work in almost 20 years. ALOT has changed since then. This course is bringing back things I have not used and forgotten and also things that I was not aware of. Well done, and laid out in a way so everything flows together. Looking forward to moving forward with the rest of the modules.

I learned a ton from this course. Gives you so much you can use in the field. But I do feel like that the courses are sometimes all over the place. You go from on unit to another and then back. Just sometimes hard to follow.

This program is the best course I have known, I’ve improved my skills and knowledge through the course.

While i found it stressful because i was coming into appliance repair blind, Master Samurai made it easy to flow along and understand. I'm a little to technical for my coworkers now who are used to saying the thingy-ma-jig. I am thankful to have passed and moved on.

I found MST’s Core Appliance Repair Training Course to be fantastic. I feel that I received a quality education in the fundamentals of Appliance Repair. I really began to feel this way about the course when Susan from MST reached out to me over email to help work through some exam questions that I was struggling to answer correctly, she helped really understand where I was going wrong so I could work the problem and ultimately move forward with comprehensive of the topic at hand. I highly recommend them to a new tech or someone who’s been in the trade but never got high quality training.

I have taken similar courses at my local community college and this course has definitely been much better. The fact that you can work at your own pace allows you to really learn everything. Sometimes I would be in bed watching videos and passing quizzes. 10/10

I made it through the first 70% of the Fundamentals course a few years ago. Upon returning and resetting my coursework to start over, I was happy to see deeper course material. I am not claiming the previous curriculum was lacking, I was just happy to see continuing improvement in the coursework in action, as preached by the Samurai Team. It's readily apparent that this on-line education is very much a living organism being nurtured by Team Samurai. I will be studying the Washer and Dryer modules next as well as making the Fundamentals Course a mandatory completion Training tool for all of my techs.

Extremely informative to say the least....

Scott and Susan I really enjoyed the fundamentals course. I have been doing appliance repair for over 20 years and still found it to be challenging. I am currently a one man operation but when I start adding more technicians they will definitely be taking this course.
- Grant

★★★★★
This course is tough. Great for serious techs that either needs a refresher or just another channel for learning. It's been years since going through ohm's law in junior college and was a challenge and pressure to get the correct answers. The timed quizes helped with the added pressure as well. I think the layout of this course is awesome and thorough. Well done Mr. and Mrs. Samurai!! You guys have a fine dojo.... sincerely and maholos!! Daniel Miyasato

I have gone through the Master Samurai Tech academy and I am very pleased at what I have learned throughout this course. The course was challenging and also fun.
