Online Computer & Appliance Repair Degrees and Careers


Computer and appliance repair jobs are in a bit of trouble, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). That's because today it's less expensive to replace a broken computer or office machine. And when ATMs break down, they can often be reset remotely. However, if you know how to service industrial digital copiers or high-end appliances, jobs could be available, as this equipment is more expensive and less likely to be replaced at the first sign of failure.

Education & Career Opportunities in Computer and Appliance Repair

Computer and and appliance repair jobs require electronics knowledge, formal training, repair experience, and certification. Training could be obtained through an associate's degree programs, the military, a vocational school or the equipment manufacturer. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 2009 mean annual wage for computer repairers stands at $39,420.

Home appliance repair jobs, meanwhile, are expected to increase slightly, by 2 percent, between 2008 and 2018, the BLS reports, as more people purchase high-end appliances. Besides training, home appliance repairers should possess a driver's license and customer service skills. Their mean annual wage in 2009 was $35,590.
