INTERESTED IN BEING A FIXIT COACH? IT’S EASY!

Fixit Coaches provide participants with:

  • guidance on tools
  • encouragement to investigate their broken item.

Tips for Fixit Coaches:

  • Let them talk about how they used it and how it broke. That often provides valuable hints as to what’s wrong.
  • See how much you can do without actually handling the item. Empower the item’s owner to do the troubleshooting and disassembly.
  • Register to be a coach here.
