The RV industry is ever-evolving, and with it, the need for skilled technicians grows. The RV Technical Institute (RVTI), with its hands-on, competency-based technician training program, stands at the forefront of this evolution.
Designed with insights from industry experts, the program promises not just knowledge but a clear career path for RV technicians.
The program’s uniqueness lies in its comprehensive curriculum, which is the only one backed by the industry. It’s no wonder then that it’s hailed as the gold standard in RV technician training. With contributions from suppliers, manufacturers, dealers, and independent technicians, the program is holistic and in tune with industry needs.
October promises to be a busy month at the institute. Two Level 1 in-person classes are on the horizon, scheduled from October 16-20 and October 30-November 3. Both sessions will unfold in the RV hub of Elkhart, IN, offering participants a deep dive into the world of RV mechanics.
However, those eyeing the Level 2 in-person course for October might have to wait a bit longer. The course, much sought after for its advanced training modules, is already fully booked for the month, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association (RVIA).
For those who value flexibility in learning, the institute’s subscription model is a boon. It offers access to both Level 1 and Level 2 training, with options for online or in-person sessions at Elkhart. This model ensures that learning never stops, regardless of one’s location.
Cost-effectiveness is another highlight of the subscription model. RV dealerships can train all their technicians for just $1,500 per location. Individuals, be it mobile technicians or newcomers to the field, have a pocket-friendly option at $600/year.
A testimonial from Monica Cardena-Broadus of Clear Creek RV underscores the program’s efficacy. She lauds the training for its comprehensive approach, drawing parallels between RV systems and those in automotive and home sectors.
For out-of-town participants, the institute has thoughtfully partnered with local hotels. These tie-ups ensure that attendees have comfortable accommodations at negotiated rates, making their training experience seamless.
The Institute is not just about training; it’s about building a community. A community of skilled technicians ready to take on the challenges of the RV world. With its industry-backed curriculum and clear certification path, the institute is shaping the future of RV mechanics.
