Course Overview:

In this course, you will learn how to repair electronics. Knowing how to repair electronics is really useful as it enables you to fix a broken thing instead of having to buy a new one.

Repairing electronics is great for the environment and it's a very satisfying process when you find and fix the problem.

Course Prerequisites

To get the most out of this course you should have a basic understanding of how circuits work. As a minimum, we recommend you go through Learn Electronics Phase 1 first. But the more you know, the easier it will be to repair electronics.

You should also know how to measure voltages with a multimeter and how to solder.

In general, the more experience you have in building circuits, the easier it will be to repair electronics.

Components & Equipment

For this course, it's best if you have a non-working device that you can practice on. But you can also just read through the course and come back again when you have a circuit that you need to troubleshoot and fix.

For basic repairs, you'll need these tools:

  • Multimeter
  • Soldering iron

If you want to go more advanced, these tools can come in handy:

  • Oscilloscope
  • Signal generator
  • Hot air rework station
