A New Career is Waiting for You
Appliance repair is a wide open lucrative field; there is a shortage of new people. Poor economic times have helped not hurt the appliance repair business; people are fixing, not replacing. Business is booming for a talented technician who wants to open his or her own shop. Appliance repair is an excellent choice for a mechanical person who likes dealing with people.
So how do you go about entering this new field? How can you master this great trade and open your own business?

We have a low rate contract with the Comfort
Inn, Cockeysville, MD 21030 of $61.00 per night including a full
breakfast. Their normal rate is about $80.00 as are other nice places nearby.
We have shopped around. You can find cheaper but we hear complaints about beds
and cleanliness. Ask for Sally Ross is you have any problems getting that rate.
The Inn is the closest to where we do most of the training.
The best shuttle from the airport is Natalia's
Van Service - Eric at 443-602-5575. He charges $30.00 one way, less than half
everybody else. Book him early.We generally can get guys to and from the
Workshop and the Inn. A car is not required as there are plenty of shops and
restaurants nearby. The first day begins at the conference center at
the Inn at 9:00 AM. My key assistant, usually has an early breakfast
with everyone to get acquainted.
