        Dear Santosh,
        I am going to start a nobile shop business and I don’t have repairing experience and I don’t know that what you will suggest me please. Is there any guidance you can provide me pls.Better I have to get any short course but in use it is not so easy to get a course like that. Or you will suggest me online can be perfect . from YouTube or Google I can learn that is it possible? I don’t have even basic knowledge about repairing. Please let me know. Waiting for your reply.

        • Santosh Das says:

          It is better to learn first and then work under an experienced technician before starting your own mobile phone repairing business. These are just very short courses. If you do the course for 3 hours everyday, you will learn most of the things in just 15 to 20 days. Then work and gain some experience under some experienced technician who is already doing the business. Do not take any salary. This way you will also learn how and from where to buy the spare parts, their rates and how to handle customers.

      You should first enroll yourself in some good institute and learn mobile phone repairing and then work for few days under some experienced technician. Once you are confident, start your own business.
