Piedmont Community College (PCC) will offer Small Engine Repair certification training beginning Friday, September 18. Classes will be held on Fridays, 4-8 p.m. on the College’s Person County Campus through April 30, 2021.

Learn how to:
• Troubleshoot and repair small gasoline engines with hands-on exercises;
• Disassemble and rebuild various types of small engines.

This training prepares students for the Briggs and Stratton Basic Small Engine certification exam and allows for a smooth transition to acquire the Master Service Technician or other advanced Briggs and Stratton certifications.

Through PCC’s Small Engine Repair program, students will increase their value as an entry-level employee by demonstrating mastery of:
• Operational theory
• Governor systems
• Ignition systems
• Fuel systems and carburetors
• Charging systems
• Diagnostics
• Failure analysis
• Basic repair of small engine systems

In fact, individuals with this credential are more marketable at a variety of work sites, including repair shops, dealerships, hardware or other retail stores, equipment rental agencies, or any business with a maintenance department.

Successful students also carry a competitive advantage if they decide to start their own small engine mechanic business.

Take the first steps in becoming a mechanic or to better maintaining your own equipment with PCC’s Small Engine Repair course for only $180. Seating is limited, so those interested are encouraged to call (336) 322-2482 or register online at: https://ww04.elbowspace.com/secure/20140204094156323193.
