Is there some kind of class, part-time apprenticeship, or in-home tutor I can use to get hands-on handyman training near Livonia, MI?
I bought a house last June. Yay! But now I'm realizing that I really have no idea how to take care of it or perform the numerous small improvements that need to be made. I've bought a couple books on home improvement and maintenance, and I know there are a lot of "how to" videos on Youtube and such. But even though such things exist, I feel like they don't give me the confidence and familiarity I would get if I actually had someone guiding me and working with me as I did things.
So what I'm wondering is, is there some kind of "handyman" class I can take? Locally? Google searches have led me to this certificate program in NY
, and a few similar things, but unfortunately they're not located anywhere near me (I'm in Livonia, MI, USA).
Yeah, I have a few handy friends I might be able to call to help out with some specific issues if I needed. But I think I want a greater volume of training than I'd be comfortable asking a friend to provide.
If you don't know of any hands-on training in my area, but you do know about some really good online resources that I don't know about, that would also be appreciated.
