Basic Home Repair Classes Can Save Homeowners Money

Published Jan 23, 2014

As Southeast Michigan residents endure one of the coldest, harshest winters in over a decade, Schoolcraft College’s Continuing Education and Professional Development Department is offering a timely series of classes in basic home repair designed to give homeowners a foundation of knowledge in electric and plumbing related issues in their home. Led by instructor Peter Pace, the two-part Simple Repairs for Beginners series will be offered in January at the Radcliff Center in Garden City and in March at the main campus in Livonia.

The basic electrical class will offer students the chance to secure the knowledge needed to safely do simple electrical home improvement projects. They will learn how to change an electrical outlet and switch, install light fixtures and smoke detectors, and test circuits. Attendees in this class will gain confidence in determining when a licensed electrician in required and get expert advice.

Students in the basic plumbing class will learn how to diagnose and repair leaky sinks and toilets, how to unclog a drain, how to replace toilet parts and understand how water is distributed and regulated in their homes. For more information, contact the CEPD office at 734-462-4448 or
