Appliance Zone believes that we are truly indebted to our military veterans. This is why we have teamed up with the Samurai Tech Academy to offer a scholarship opportunity free training to military veterans who have the desire to enter the highly rewarding field of appliance repair.

The Military Veteran Appliance Repair Training Scholarship Program is for the Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Training Course offered through Master Samurai Tech Online Academy.? Scholarships will awarded periodically to qualified applicants, chosen by a committee.

According to Appliance Zone CEO Jim Allen, "Being an appliance repair technician was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.”

I went into the appliance repair business without any training whatsoever. For over fourteen years I learned everything I could and made thousands of service calls. You can make a very solid living in the appliance repair industry, as it is one of the most in demand careers out there.

If I would have had the opportunity to take a training course to give me all of the knowledge that the Fundamentals of Appliance Repair Training course does, I would have jumped at the chance. It would have given me an advantage over the other technicians starting out then. We want to give our hard working men and women of the armed forces that advantage.

As the saying goes, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” We want to give our veterans something that they will use for a lifetime. "
