Appliance Repair Academy grew out of a vision that would increase the workforce in the appliance repair business. Our instructors have over 25 years of combined appliance repair technical experience and business ownership. The appliance repair trade skill-set was developed from a necessity to earn a living and to provide an inexpensive service to those in need within the East Side of Cleveland. After many years of receiving contracts for repair calls, our team decided that the best approach would be to empower companies and individuals by training them and allowing them to save their finances for other experiences in life. There is a Chinese proverb that is our motto and is echoed throughout our offices and training academy: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Being in the appliance repair business, you learn that customer satisfaction is the most valuable possession that any business can have. Customers are the most valuable asset. Once the customer is satisfied, they can and typically will help grow the business by continuing to do business and by recommending you to friends and associates.
