Small Engine Repair, Introduction

Small Engine Repair, Introduction

This small engine repair course carefully details the many systems, tools, and parts involved in successful repair.  Participants will learn the essentials for performance measurements and preventative maintenance, as well as an opportunity to work on their own small engine needs. In addition to the technical training, students will also learn more about career opportunities in this line of work from a veteran of the industry with more than 20 years of experience.  After learning the basics, this program uses a complete “tear down” and rebuild of a 2 and 4-cycle engine to demonstrate and teach the maintenance and repair of small engines. You will walk away knowing: how to adjust and reassemble both a 2 and 4-cycle engine, why and how to adjust the governor, making carburetor adjustments, selecting the best oil and gas types for the season and for your equipment, and understanding and avoiding common problems like ethanol-related issues. This course is ideal for anyone looking to save money by performing their own repairs on equipment such as lawnmowers, chain saws, weed eaters and more.

Participants must bring their own small engine equipment and tools to the class, and purchase their own supplies.
