Local Startup Hosting Cellphone Repair Lessons


At a time when jobs are extremely hard to come by, Zimbos are doing whatever they can to upskill themselves and become a part of the economy regardless of whether or not that participation is formal or informal.

We recently, went to Batanai gardens to attend a mobile phone repair class hosted by Ixar Cellphone Repair Academy. The founder of Ixar, Tinofara Mutovongi has been repairing phones for over a year and a half now but in October he decided to go a step further and start sharing that knowledge.

Every month for the past 6 months, Ixar has hosted cellphone repair classes with about 10 students for each intake. The students have been taken through a syllabus that touches on the following;

  • Business dynamics of cell phone repair;
  • Introduction to cell phone technologies
  • Workshop procedures and tools
  • Diagnose and assembly procedures
  • Water repair damage
  • Soldering
  • Screen refurbishing
  • Software

Above all, we want to emphasize professionalism as we strive to change the industry from being crowded by untrained people who become crooks and shortchanging their clients.

Participants can enrol for a two or four-week course which are priced at US$50 and US$100 respectively at the end of which they’ll have the skills to start repairing cellphones along with a certificate of competence issued by Ixar Cellphone Repairs.

The cost of repairing is more expensive these days as to buying a new product weather it’s phone or TV….I’m actually disappointed in you guys…I thought you were ahead of technology and logistics….the real people who are making a change that’s impactful in life are the guys selling phones online on a organized level wiping out Zimex mall habit…
