The program in Appliance Service Technology offers instruction for two career options. The Appliance Technician I option prepares students for entry-level positions as appliance installers or shop technician trainees. Students selecting the Appliance Technician II option will be prepared for entry-level positions in the appliance service field, with sufficient back-ground to support a rapid transition to the field technician level.
The job outlook for appliance technicians is very good, especially for those with the right training. There is a serious shortage of skilled appliance service technicians. LMC graduates work for repair companies, appliance manufacturers and retailers. Many have advanced to management positions, moved into sales and marketing or started their own appliance repair business.
