Becoming a master technician requires developing your hand-eye coordination as quickly as possible both for the benefit of learning and to build speed. An immersive in person experience will take you 50-70% of the way the being able to learn online at a more rapid rate, while also building speed.
If you are serious about making rapid progress as a master technician in training, in person training will help tremendously. While in person training is not required to complete any Level 2 course, completing our 3-Day Intensive in Person Training is a pre-requisite for continuing your skills in the Master Level 3 & 4 Repair Technician course. Before our 3-day immersive, we will set up a consultation to determine personalized learning objectives, which are based on your prior successes and challenges in the course.
This 3 Day In Person Intensive is offered at Carolyn Nussbaum Music Company in Plano, Texas with Master Technician Carolyn Nussbaum.
