“We thought that this one was the one that most people were interested in, so much so that we had to turn people back because we could not accommodate them anymore. So, this year, many of the institutions that specially requested for this instructor to come down here and hold this course again.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“So, with this course, would you say that people would perhaps be able to start their own little informal business of repairing phones; their own, their families, friends’ phones?”

 

Naveed Mangla

“This is what the goal is. The instructor has brought some kits with him and if by the end of it the students are trained enough they can purchase one from him and they can do the basic repair on their own.”

 

Andrea Polanco

“And it’s free?”

 

Naveed Mangla

“This is free but there is only a ten dollar registration fee. The reason why we are doing it this year is that a lot of people say that they are gonna come and then there is no commitment but this at least will show a little commitment on their part. And we will be offering a certificate by the end of the course, so that whenever they apply for a job they can show that they have gained this training.”

“They are gonna learn the full gamut; they are going to learn everything about how to repair phones in every situation, but more importantly, they are gonna learn the insider business tips and strategies that they are gonna know to start their own business.”

“What would you say would be the most common problem that people would have with their physical phone?”

 

James Sinclair

“Right. Most common problem, I would say is broken screen. But then you have things like water damage too and I am going to teach people too how to deal with those situations and a lot of times the phones can be repaired.”

 

Reporter

“How do you find that commonality between all the different types and models of phones?”

 

James Sinclair

“They are all repairable. That is the only thing that people need to understand. It is not rocket science. It is something that can be made into a business and people can benefit and take care of their families with.”
