GE Appliances and RV Technical Institute: Elevating RV Technician Training to New Heights

In the ever-evolving world of recreational vehicles (RVs), the need for skilled technicians is paramount. The RV Technical Institute‘s (RVTI) technician training program stands as the gold standard in the industry, offering courses that cater to various expertise levels. 

While Level 1 and Level 2 courses lay the foundation, it’s the Level 3 specialties that truly set technicians apart, equipping them with advanced skills in diagnostics, troubleshooting, and repairs on specific RV systems and components.

GE Appliances, a renowned name in the home appliances sector, has taken a keen interest in this training. Their comprehensive Level 3 training for service technicians focuses on GE Appliance RV products and domestic home products found in RV coaches. 

This training is not just theoretical; it encompasses video links, documentation, and diagnostic forms, ensuring a holistic learning experience.

The collaboration between GE Appliances and Midwest Sales and Service (MWSS) Inc. is a testament to the former’s commitment to the RV industry. After decades of collaboration, the two entities have integrated their operations, aiming to expand their combined capacity in the innovation, development, sales, and service of outdoor living appliances in the U.S. 

This integration sees MWSS operating as a subsidiary of GE Appliances, leveraging its warehousing, distribution, and delivery capabilities to better service customers.

In 2021, GE Appliances showcased its dedication to the recreational living business segment by creating a specialized team. This team, focusing on the development of this emerging business segment, introduced new product innovations tailored for recreational living product distributors and their consumers. 

The relationship with MWSS, a trusted customer since 1991, played a pivotal role in the success and growth of the RV segment at GE Appliances.

Community involvement is at the heart of GE Appliances’ ethos. Their history of investing in education is evident in their recent contributions to Elkhart, Indiana. They’ve made significant donations to local programs, including a workforce development investment in the Institute. 

This ensures that more individuals have access to the training required to manufacture top-tier recreational vehicles in Elkhart. Furthermore, in a bid to support the future of the community, GE Appliances has established a scholarship with the Elkhart Education Foundation, aiding high school students in their post-graduate education pursuits.

The collaboration between GE Appliances and the RV Technical Institute signifies a bright future for the RV industry. With top-tier training programs and a commitment to community development, the future of RV technicians and the broader industry looks promising. 

As the RV landscape continues to evolve, partnerships like these will be instrumental in steering the industry towards excellence.
