Squeaky wheel still needs to be greased.   Some entrepreneur  will figure how to do it better & more economically.   So be pessimistic & clip your wings.   Me I am going to soar like an eagle with a little help from my optimistic friends.    Just look around & see all the technology that has become common place,  any Joe Blow can find his way around.   Future will be no different, just go with it.

Just wondering if this is the beginning of the end of the service tech?

Even if the appliance calls the service center and describes the part it needs, someone will have to install it. We will be like Doctor McCoy and wave our tricorder over the machine to diagnose it.

How many of you can say that ALL the fault codes ALWAYS fix the machine? We may become more parts changers but never eliminated.

Know it will not be the end but the more training is something that as technician we will have to be doing a lot more.Training and seeing the product in the field and the more open you see it the better you will get at fixing it.Good training is going to be the key and seeing that product in the field often is also the key.Training and you work on 3 a years is know good.You all forget what you learnt.Alot of these companies work on everything.They will have seen these products first and if they are train good enough it will be advantage to them.Seeing the same problems over and over again is a big advantage.Factory training is going to have to be a big player in all this new stuff.Are these companies will to train you is a question?
