Learn how to repair Macbook logic boards!
We offer one-on-one training in a personalized tutoring environment. I believe the best way to learn difficult material is in an environment where you work and ask questions at your own pace. Tutoring is always one-on-one with no other students.
Who does the teaching?
All teaching will be done by my assistant, Jason. Louis no longer offers any tutoring. Any & all future sessions will be with Louis’ primary technician, not Louis himself!
I want to sign up! What do I do?
Very simple! Choose a package below, and then pick your dates using the scheduler. Don’t sign up for one day; we don’t accept 1 day sessions and will refund you & cancel your booking.
Watch students fix boards below!
We’ve repaired thousands of boards. We teach from an everyman’s perspective, not an engineer’s, and will work with you on his daily queue. You’ll get to see what is and isn’t economical to repair, how we handle real problems on real boards that customers bring in, and welcome you to bring your own. Feel free to Google Louis Rossmann to find hundreds of instructional videos, how-to posts, and answers on forums where your instructor’s content has helped others repair boards otherwise considered dead. We will be going over:
- Liquid damage diagnostics & repairs.
- No power troubleshooting.
- Running slow troubleshooting.
- No backlight troubleshooting.
- No image troubleshooting.
- Small chip BGA rework.
- If time and jobs permit, large chip BGA rework.
- QFN and SMD component soldering.
- Time sensitive troubleshooting – how to get work done in a minimal amount of time.
- How to spot miserable problems so they do not waste your time.
What will I get out of this tutoring?
Increased bottom line and faster turnaround for your own customers.
Have you been turning down liquid spill damage because you lack the tools or knowledge to repair it? Have customers said no, or backed away when you tell them you have to send the laptop somewhere else?
I know that when we outsourced these repairs, it wasn’t as good for our business. The ability to offer faster repairs and judge the complexity/timeframe of a repair upfront greatly enhanced the customer experience at my business. I want your business to benefit from the additional services you will be able to offer, and the superior customer service of cutting out the middlemen.
I have never been a great classroom learner. I learn well one-on-one, when I, as a student, can set the pace, the path, and the content of the curriculum. As a teacher, I work with only one student at a time to ensure that I can provide this same high-quality education. Teaching only one student at a time, I am able to adapt my lesson to the student’s individual needs and abilities, provide immediate feedback, answer questions as they arise, and ensure that my student understands and absorbs the information I am presenting.
Real world approaches to real world problems.
I will be working with you on my daily queue, which is always a slew of destroyed logic boards. You will see how we handle tickets in an actual store that pays its rent and staff off of logic board repairs; not pretend in an alternate environment. The customers dropping these items off will be within an ear’s reach of my office you will be working in. You will also be given boards to work on from my collection and I will involve you in the diagnostic process, answering your questions as I go.
Problem-solving expertise from a working professional who does this for a living.
Other component-level repair education programs are taught by underqualified generalists who lack real-world experience.
The companies teaching board repair that know what they are doing are often very broadly focused, with little you can apply to our profession. You’ll see lots of focus on perfect soldering techniques, which doesn’t help you diagnose real world problems. Proper soldering is one thing, but there is much more to board repair than learning how to solder. How do you figure out why something isn’t charging, or isn’t displaying an image, or isn’t turning on when the connector isn’t damaged? How do you figure out which components are at fault when none of them look damaged? This instruction is missing from every program I have researched.
I want you to learn the ins and outs of how to do what we do: component-level repair of Apple laptop logic boards, so that you can enhance your existing business and make a better living from it.
Shortcuts past the time-wasting mistakes.
There are many common mistakes that everyone makes entering this field. There’s virtually no information on the internet besides what I have provided; I want to go through these mistakes with you. More importantly, I want you to make those mistakes HERE so you don’t make them at your business where they will cost you time, money, and sanity.
I will supply you with notes on what we’ve gone over so that you are not left stranded if you forget core concepts.
What are you teaching?
I teach whatever it is that you need to learn. The beauty of one-on-one tutoring is that I get to redirect “what are you teaching?” back at you with another question: “What don’t you know?” The format is simple: we work on real board issues at your pace.
My favorite part of this entire process is that I am never going over the same thing twice. It is all based on where YOU are in your understanding of this entire process.
You should be in the business of doing this before signing up.
This is designed to help people who already have a business working on these products stop outsourcing and make more money. This is not designed to get you from zero experience to profitable business inside of a week. This is to fill the gaps, not to get you to where I am inside of 3-5 days. You should work at a business doing this or have a business doing this, where you have built up a client base.
If you are at a point where you’ve lost your job, need to pay the mortgage, and want to spend your last $1000 with me because you think it will fix everything: THIS IS NOT FOR YOU! There are MUCH better ways to spend that last $1000. I have been there and will tell you, this will not fix it. It takes lots of time to build momentum and a client base. A client base willing to spend money will not show up just because you come to this tutoring.
Some will be paying to learn that this is not for them.
I am honest about this. Some have the mindset required to do well at this. Some will figure out, quickly, that this is not for them. Not everyone is going to wind up being good at this. If the thought of this scares you, I would suggest thinking twice before signing up.
A few things required:
- Analytical mindset.
- Willingness to jump to conclusions based on logical reasoning, then test if your conclusion is true.
- Not being afraid to be wrong.
- Ability to learn from mistakes and self-modify behavior.
When it comes to soldering, I can only do so much – at some point you will have to realize what works and does not work and correct your own hands.
You should have boards to bring.
Working on real boards is at the core of this course. We can work on my stuff, but that can run out, which is why it will be helpful if you bring boards to fix.
NOT EBAY JUNK!
If you go to eBay to buy junk just so you have stuff to bring, it will not work. eBay boards are trash that no one else wanted to fix(for good reason) that are usually unfixable.
