Oh Grand Master,
I am a tech from a far land, of a strange discipline
I know the tools well, the techniques well, but am unfamiliar with the specific demons that abound in these, as you say, appliances.
I have lurked in the shadows of knowledge surrounding this forum for years. All the while slaying the failures of appliances around me, through a combination of guile and bull headed determinedness.
I have now encountered a beast that has given me pause.
I am told that parts are NLA, get rid of the unit.
I cannot face my clan by doing so. I must not let this fiend win.
I must enter your dojo, and humbly ask for training.
I come to you and thank you for acceptance into your domain, and promise to humbly offer experiences and trainings that while foreign to you and yours, may enrichen your knowledge of the disciplines in which I am trained.

Rob

I was surprised (and honoured) to discover that I had received full marks on the test. I know I still have much more to learn in the ways of appliantology.

You're already an Apprentice. The exam is an alternate way to become an Apprentice. I get a bunch of 'em back every day and I grade them by hand. Takes a lot of time. I try to get results back to everyone but sometimes you just gotta triage it. Only so much time in the day and I'm just one guy. One very talented and good looking guy, to be sure, but just one guy nonetheless. :afro:

As do we all, my son. Your Apprenticeship should be seen as the beginning of an infinite journey. And since the journey is infinite, we are always at the beginning. Zen mind, beginner's mind. Can I hear an "Amen?" :touched:

So - I can verify that 9 years of working on copiers and printing presses can qualify one as a Merit Appliantologist. There was one question, though, that I had to get lucky on - copiers don't have certain components found on common household equipment. But they all use the same electricity!
