Cell Phone Repair Essentials Course

How To Become

a Cell Phone & Tablet Repair Technician...

This Course Is Perfect If You Are Wanting To
Learn The Essentials
Of Cell Phone and Tablet Repair...

(...Even If You Don't Have Any Experience Or Knowledge)

Ordinary cell phone repair technicians just don't get it...

There was a time when training yourself via "YouTube" was enough, but today (if you want to build confidence with your customers and grow a thriving, legitimate business) you need to do more.

So how do you do it?

How do you separate yourself from the flood of competition and command the highest prices in your market?

Fortunately, that's exactly what you're about to learn...

FACT: Repair Businesses Need Cell Phone Repair Technicians

(...Who Actually Know What They're Doing)

I'm not going to sell you on the importance of having good repair technicians or becoming a better technician yourself.

If you're here, you already know the importance of becoming a certified cell phone and tablet repair technician.  Because certified technicians:

  • Build authority and credibility
  • Offer better customer repair solutions
  • Are not "One Trick Ponies" that only know how to replace parts

In other words, certified cell phone repair technicians are the lifeblood of any cell phone repair business.

So that's why repair businesses need certified cell phone repair technicians.

There's just one problem:  Most so-called "repair technicians" don't know what they're doing.

That's where you come in.

As a Certified Cell Phone & Tablet Repair Essentials Graduate, you are uniquely qualified to help repair more devices, with less errors, resulting in more profits.

  • The right way to diagnose and troubleshoot device problems so you're not just guessing at the issue and throwing  parts into a device, but not knowing what to do.  Don't be an amateur just twisting screws, that is a lose money strategy!
  • A Vendor Marketplace that has wholesale parts and tools companies with unbiased ratings from real repair technicians and business owners.  Stop being price gouged by "biased" companies...
  • Database unlocks that allow you take a cell phone from one carrier to another and avoid carrier blacklists, or even how to install aftermarket software onto the device to allow your customers to completely enjoy their devices.
  • You'll learn all the tools (and where to buy them) that you need for success for repairing cell phones and tablets.  Separating tools, pry tools, data transfer and extraction tools, soldering tools, troubleshooting equipment and everything in between.
  • Learn how signals and electricity flows through cell phones and tablets, and how to identify and test all the components on the inside of them, even if you have no technical background or even barely know how to operate a phone!
  • Learn the tools, resources and methods to extract precious information from your customers broken or working devices.  This skill can make you tons of money if done effectively...we'll teach you the "secret sauce" to unlock these profits in your business.
  • How to do proper "Pre & Post-Flight Checks" to ensure that every repair is tested effectively before and after it's completed.  Stop letting customers get the best of you and start properly setting checkpoints and references to ensure quality repairs!
  • Learn to identify, assess and treat Level 1 liquid damage repairs on cell phones and tablets.  Putting devices in rice is foolish...learn the real ways to provide quality liquid damage repairs.
  • ESD is the biggest culprit of devices not functioning properly after what should have been a smooth and straightforward repair.  Now you'll learn how to keep ESD from destroying your repair profits...safely, effectively and inexpensively!
  • You will learn how to repair any smart phone or tablet on the market...period.  From the newest iPhone repair, to the newest Galaxy repair, iPad repair or any other device on the market such as HTC repairs, LG repairs, Motorola repairs and more.

How Does It Work?

Cell Phone Repair Essentials Course

Step 1:  Take The Course

The Cell Phone & Tablet Repair Essentials course is 16 clock hours of training online/virtual courses, plus live virtual coaching sessions, repair labs and certification exams.  The On-Campus delivery method adds an additional 16 clock hours for a total of 32 clock hours.  (NOTE: A complete course description can be found at the bottom of this page.)

The program level is appropriate for beginners with no experience, intermediate level technicians and advanced technicians, and is taught to the mobility repair certification standards set by the Association of Device Repair Service Excellence (ADRSE) Level 1 & 2.

This program is taught either in-person (on-campus) or online.  Your theory is delivered online, and the hands-on classroom is the laboratory practicals where you'll spend 100% of your time doing real-world repairs.   If you choose On-Campus, we recommend completing your online courses prior to attending the hands-on lab practicals to give you the optimal learning experience.(NOTE: A complete course description can be found at the bottom of this page.)

Step 2:  Pass The Tests

At the end of each core module you will take a brief quiz to ensure that you understand the basic concepts covered in that module.  The lab practicals require practice workmanship exercises be completed prior to demonstrating your workmanship to your trainer for the final workmanship grade.

Once you have completed each quiz for each module, and each workmanship exercise, you will then be able to sit for the final exam (which is taken online) and upon successful completion you will have earned your badge and certificate.

Our exams aren’t “tricky,” but they do require that you know the information if you want to pass. A passing grade is 70, and you can retake the test twice (for a max total of 3 attempts). If you do not receive a passing grade after your third attempt, you will be required to go back through the module prior to taking the test again.

Step 3:  Get Your Badge & Certificateopenbadges-480x334

Upon successful completion of the course and exams, you will receive a personalized badge and certificate.

Our badges leverage Mozilla's "Open Badges Project" so your accomplishment can be displayed in all the places that matter, including: your website, email signature, job placement sites, community portals, Wordpress blogs, Twitter status updates and your LinkedIn profile.

Plus, your certificate is suitable for framing should you wish to proudly display your achievement at your home or office.

Who Should Get Certified?

Business owners (both retail and wholesale)

Startups and fast-growth companies

Entrepreneurs

Technicians needing solid training

Students who want to acquire in-demand skills

...anyone who wants added credibility and an objective sense of accomplishment.

Why Should You Get Certified?

If You're An Individual:

...this certification will set you apart from the pack.

Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a "cell phone repair technician," you'll have the certificate and the badge to prove it, from a source that is licensed by the Board of Education.

More importantly, it will make you a better technician and business owner.

Why? Because you're receiving training that has not only been tested and improved by almost 5,000 students, but it's field tested daily in our own profitable repair stores.

And we held nothing back.

You will be learning the exact same tools, techniques and strategies that have generated millions of dollars for our students over the last few years.

So, if you want to:

  • Enhance your career (or start a new one)
  • Learn the latest and greatest repair techniques and tactics (that actually work)
  • Expand your skill set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher pay grade...

...this course and certification is for you.

If You're A Business Owner:

Why Should You Get Certified?

...maybe you don't need the certification.

But what about your team? Do you know for a fact that they're up to speed on all the latest and greatest repair techniques and profit generating strategies?

If you're not sure, or if you just want them to receive the industry standard training to show you play at a higher level, then get them certified! 

They'll love the fact that you're investing in them, and you'll love the fact that they're performing at the highest level possible for your company. 

Oh yeah, and if you're a franchise, activation store or other repair professional, then you already know how important certifications are to distancing yourself from the competition. And who knows? It might even help you claim higher fees for the work you're already doing.

Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then this course and certification is for you.

 

Cellular Repair School Is Different

Yes, you can find other trainings that cover similar topics, but a Cellular Repair School diploma and Association of Device Repair Service Excellence (ADRSE) certification is unique because it's built and taught by real experts who actually own and operate real repair businesses.

In other words, we aren't "researchers." We're in-the-trenches doers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn something is to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. If that sounds appealing, then welcome! You've found your home.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Q:  "How will this certificate help me?"

A:  This really depend on what your goals are...

If you’re wanting to start your own cell phone repair business, this is the best way to learn the proper techniques, resources, vendors and skills to be successful by doing things the right way.

If you're already a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn cell phone and tablet repair yourself.  It's also a fantastic way to train and certify members of your own team to ensure that they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.

If you're an employee, this certificate can make you worth more to your company, which is a great way to get that raise you probably already deserve.

Q:  "How valuable is this certification?"

A:  If you really want to set yourself apart from your competition this certification is highly valuable.  However, the knowledge you’ll gain by completing this course and passing all the tests is more valuable than any certificate or badge.  At the end of this course, YOU WILL KNOW CELL PHONE AND TABLET REPAIR ESSENTIALS.

Q:  "Will I Learn Where To Get Parts & Tools?"

A:  Yes, our Vendor Marketplace has all the wholesale suppliers for everything from tools and parts, to Software and Bookkeepers.  Virtually everything you need to start, run or grow your business...whether a small at home business or a multi-location franchise...we've got you covered!

Q:  "What makes a diploma or certificate from CRS different than other training centers?"

A:  Cellular Repair School is the only cell phone repair school licensed by the Board of Education and approved by the Association of Device Repair Service Excellence.  This means your diploma or certificate actually means something!  We teach the vendor-neutral industry standard, and are not trying to sell you over-priced parts or other things you might not need.  We care about your success!

Q:  "Can I Take This Class Online?"

A:  This course is offered with 2 different delivery methods, Online or Hands-On.  You can complete the training and certifications 100% online without the need to attend the 2 day On-Campus lab practical portion.  If you want to attend On-Campus, you will still be required to complete the Online portions prior to attending the hands-on lab practicals courses.  The course is flexible to fit your needs.

Q:  "Is Hands-On/On-Campus better than Online Cell Phone Repair Training?"

A:  No, not at all.  There are pro's and con's to either delivery method and it really comes down to what fits your budget, time frame and personal situation.  If you can afford the time and expense to travel, On-Campus may be a good fit.  However, if you need flexibility and affordability, Online is the better option for you.  We typically recommend starting with Online and then upgrading to On-Campus if you feel you need it (most people are surprised by how easy we've made it learn online cell phone repair training).

Q: "How long does it take to finish the course and get certified?"

A:  This course is 16 hours of video training for the portions delivered online.  The on-campus hands-on program is an additional 16hours (2 days, Monday - Tuesday) of lab practical classes.  If you choose hands-on training, we recommend completing the self-paced online portions prior to attending your hands-on lab practical course to ensure the best training experience, if you choose.

Q: "Am I guaranteed to get certified if I take the class?"

A:  No.  A certification that can be purchased isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.  You will have to earn your certificate by passing the course and exams.

Q: "I don't care about the diploma or certification...can I just audit the class?"

A:  The knowledge you gain in this course will help you even if you don’t need the certification.

Q: "How difficult are the tests?"

A:  Our tests are based on the cell phone repair industry standards set by the Association of Device Repair Service Excellence (ADRSE), which means that they are difficult enough that you need to actually know the material.  They are not tricky or hard just to be hard, but are challenging enough that you shouldn’t expect to be able to pass just because you’ve taken other training or courses in the past that are not based on the repair industry standard.  This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.

Q: "Are scholarships available?"

A:  We currently are not offering any scholarships.  Fortunately our courses are priced so that they are affordable to everyone, especially compared to similar training classes.
