    That is the reason I am looking into it. I have applied to a shop and they really only hire people that are dm. I want to find way to get around that for now.

    Little chance, unfortunately. Work your way up to DM, then they'll hire you and train you to repair gear just so you're more handy around the shop. There aren't many options for non-professionals to get training in gear repair, other than that. Most manufacturer repair clinics are for professionals only as well.

    Well you can pay out of your pocket to get training at places like Hallís, but at those schools you will need to attend them at their locations and I can't say how much stock dive shops put in those places training. Manufacturers only provide factory training for people who work at authorized resale centers so you canít do that unless you get hired by someone first.
    Getting your DM and letting the shop get you training would be cheaper than a commercial training school, plus you would have your DM to boot.
    I guess it all depends on what is your end goal as to how you might get your training.
