Default computer motherboard repair courses

Hi, I have the time and the inclination now to take on a computer repair course online.
Can anyone start me off with ideas. So Far I have seen repairers advertising curses on YouTube which seems perfectly convenient to me.

You don't have to. Go with many of the Youtube channels where professionals explain their work. The general principles between desktop and laptop repair are the same, the main difference between the boards is in where the power is generated (PSU vs on-board) as well as presence of additional embedded stuff in laptops (e.g. SD card readers).

You Tube is the first place I am looking for courses. I made a selection and saved them last night . Got to sort through them to see which is best for me.
The accents of some of the Indian teachers is so much that I do not understand all they say so I think it needs to be an English speaking repair course.
For a few dollars, I can afford the NZ$5.99 one of the repairers on YouTube charges. I can afford to experiment at that price.
But I will keep looking, thanks.

Youtube is unfortunately polluted with non-English (or incomprehensible English) material that you can't filter out. I had to navigate. My tip here is look for channels, not videos. My starters were Louis Rossman and Soren's "Electronic Repair School". However I also speak several other languages and I found a wealth of information in the corresponding communities. I do think folks need to be paid for their work, but I can't recommend any training course because I can't vouch for their quality. I saw one and it was relatively shallow, I honestly learned more from the guy's youtube channel than his paid course.

The repairs I am beginning to do are donated laptop repairs so it is not going to be so likely I will be repairing Macs, though I am interested in his videos.
I am more likely to go with the Electronics repair school. He repairs most other computers and it maybe just the start I need.
