Samsung Tech Institute a fast-track into appliance repair jobs

Posted on July 10, 2017

What’s behind the sleek glass walls of Vancouver Community College's (VCC) Samsung Tech Institute? Find out at our next info session at the Broadway campus.

After establishing a successful training program for experienced technicians in early 2017, VCC's Samsung Tech Institute is now opening its doors to newcomers to appliance repair with a 14-week, full-time Entry Pathway program starting Sept. 5, 2017.

"Our goal is to have job-ready grads at the end of the 14 weeks," says Sid Khullar, program coordinator. "The appliance repair industry is in need of technicians and with this training, we’re able to fast-track our students into in-demand jobs."

The Entry Pathway program has no technical prerequisites. With admission requirements of Grade 12 English and Grade 11 Math, the program is ideal for students of all backgrounds, including those new to Canada.

Entry Pathway students get hands-on training on major appliances at the Samsung Tech Institute. The program covers everything from customer service essentials to gas appliance service certification, with a focus on Samsung products.

The Samsung Tech Institute is only one of two in Canada, and the only one of its kind in Western Canada. As a leading major appliance brand in Canada, Samsung is offering three $1,000 scholarships for the Entry Pathway program. Scholarship application deadline is August 31, 2017.


All info sessions will be held at the Samsung Tech Institute (room 2602) at VCC’s Broadway Campus.
