Last fall, RepairQ announced they would sponsor three WISE Certification scholarships, to help provide assistance to those seeking certification. Applicants were asked to submit answers to a series of questions about why they wanted to be WISE Certified.
What followed was repair shops of all sizes and technicians of all ranges of experience sharing their stories and motivations for a better industry. Each entry was stripped of any identity that would reveal names and brands, allowing all applications to remain anonymous. The panel of industry experts had the pleasure of reviewing many qualified applicants, it was not an easy decision, but the recipients that will be rewarded scholarships have been chosen!
WISE Certification was created in response to those Repair Shops and Technicians looking to stand out in a crowded industry. Repair Shops and Technicians wanting to meet the standard that not only the Wireless Industry needed them to adhere to, but ultimately the consumer looking for a trusted repair provider.
The answers to the essay questions provided by all that participated, echoed that mission. It was read over and over again. As a Technician or a Repair Shop owner, through many heartfelt paragraphs, you explained why it is important to become WISE Certified. You told us why your community deserves a trusted tech hero in town!
RepairQ and Service Central Technologies has been involved in the WISE Certification program since day one. Working with industry leaders, OEM’s, carriers, and your peers to stand up the standards to improve the Wireless Repair Industry. To provide Repair Shop owners with the tools and practices to be best in class, and to provide Technicians with accreditations and a career path.
