Washing Machine Repair & Servicing Course




2 days




The Builder Training Centre (The BTC) offers high-quality structured Washing Machine Repair & Servicing Courses, which can be attended as a 2 day course during the week (Various weekdays).

Our instructors are qualified, highly experienced, knowledgeable and enthusiastic Tradespersons, so students can take advantage of all the tips of the trade, personal experiences and advice they offer.

This short course is intensive, but the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable which creates a good learning environment. If you have a particular project in mind, or some building plans you wish to gain advice on, our instructors will be more than happy to discuss these with you.

It is advantageous, but not essential, that students have a basic understanding of electrics and mechanics.

All reference documentation that covers these subjects is included in the course. Once completed, you will have a set of transferable skills that you can use on your own appliances, and your clients’ appliances, or demonstrate competencies to a future employer if you want to pursue a career in the White Goods Industry.

This course would be beneficial to companies that cover property maintenance and would like to include White Goods.

Provided you are aged at least 18 years and deemed fit and healthy to complete physical work, this course is suitable for you. Whether your background is already in a trade or something completely different, these skills can be learnt and applied directly after the course.

Course notes will be provided during your course. These will summarise most of the topics covered with some diagrams and pictures also included, however, you may choose to bring along a notepad and pen to take additional notes.
