Hi AJ,
 
Thanks for the invite, I just noticed it. I've been a pro tech since 1972, having gone through GM's Frigidaire training back then. 'Have had my own appliance repair business, Dave's Repair Service, since '86 here in N PA's beautiful 'Endless Mountains' area. Diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease 2 years ago, I had to shut down the in-home service side of the biz last summer.
 
These days, I rework a LOT of vintage Sunbeam Mixmasters and Sunbeam auto toasters(!) here in the shop - the same equipt my Dad serviced when it was new, back in the 50's and 60's!  :)
 
Anyway, sign me up. I still learn something new every day, and may be able to help another tech along the way. 
 
Thanks again, and God bless,

Wow, that's a long time. I was 4 years old in 1972.  ;)
Would love to see a few photos of your area sometime, sound nice.

A.J,
I own my own appliance service business here in Louisiana and I have also worked for SEARS as an appliance service technician. I would appreciate it if you would add me to your Let's Talk Service board. This site is the best service site on the net and I have enjoyed being a member here. I am always learning something from other techs and perhaps I can help others also.
Thanks,
iceman

Hi i am a new member. I am considering taking a coarse and becoming certified(?) I've always had a knack for this kind of thing, taking things apart and putting things back together, fixing things, installing.. ect. but i have a few questions/reservations about the whole thing. Is there any truth to the whole women in the industry thing? do people prefer men? would i be shunned? Is there even any room left for me in this kind of field, or would people just rather buy new? any experiences or comments would be appreciated.

norimw there is room for women in any field to learn and excel.
Kellonie on this forum has her own repair business in North Carolina and is doing very well.
No one knows it all except maybe REG US PAT_OFF and REPAIRMAN and they have been wrong on occasion.
My advice to you is DO IT.
