Generators require a trained expert to make repairs when things go wrong. Not everyone is mechanically inclined, and the more technical today’s products have become, the more difficult it is to be able to maintain and repair them on your own.  This makes the skilled generator repairman a highly sought after commodity, and ensures an adequate income for a dependable, well-trained technician.

New Leaf Foundation’s generator repair program uses intensive hands-on instruction combined with an advanced, integrated curriculum in academics, technical, and workplace skills to train students with mechanical aptitude to diagnose, service, and repair generators.
