The use of mobile phones is on the rise, creating a significant market for repair services, especially in poverty-ridden areas where the cost of buying a new device is prohibitive. This makes working as a technician or starting a mobile phone repair business is a good career prospect that does not require any previous experience or education.
After the success of our first 3 courses, we are looking for your support to offer it 3 times per year for free at our training facilities in Reyhanli and Iskenderun. The majority of our graduates got a better-paid job or even started their own small enterprises.
What skills do we teach?
The curriculum includes 12 weeks of instructor-led classroom training (250 hours), practical projects, and a final assessment.
At the end of the course, the trainees are able to:
Use various tools and equipment
Disassemble and assemble various cell phone models
Diagnose and troubleshoot common issues
Replace parts, cracked screens, and LCDs
We have offered the training twice already in Reyhanli and 100% of our trainees successfully completed the course and passed the final examinations.
Why we chose those skills?
We designed the course based on the work opportunities in the areas where we operate. It helps our residents find better-paid jobs, support their families, and live in dignity.
Many refugees never graduated school due to conflict and missed out on important learning that would have helped them pursue a work occupation and have a stable income. So they embrace the chance to learn practical skills as a way to remedy the lost education, gain the chance to develop professionally, and earn more than the minimum wage.
