What Does Sears Technical Training Look Like?

Although we hire both experienced technicians and applicants that are new to the field of appliance repair, technical training begins with safety courses and basic electrical theory. New hires go through a regimen of classroom training and hands-on practice of learned skills. Knowledge and skills are tested throughout the training.

Of course, experienced appliance techs will have the opportunity to test out of basic training and move on to more advanced subjects.

Advanced technician training covers disassembly, diagnosis and repair topics for common appliances of all brands.

Here’s a brief example of training that refrigeration techs receive.

At Sears, you’ll receive extensive training in customer service and selling techniques. Sears Technicians offer customers value added products and/or services during repair calls. Selling add-on products will enhance your earnings.

Once you complete your technical training and begin running repair routes, you’ll also get ongoing coaching and training from experienced mentors to help you thrive in your career with Sears.

Sears Home Services continues to develop new training programs to help technicians learn the business and thrive. We’re developing a Sears Technical Institute to help applicants and recruits get a head start on training and development as an appliance repair technician. We look forward to helping all repair enthusiasts grow in their abilities to diagnose and fix appliance problems. Join our Sears Home Services Team and help us enrich the appliance repair culture.
